Arts AFlutter May Listings

The weather here has taken a turn for the better.   Hubby and I have spent much of the time working on some new garden creations for ourselves, and to bring along for the show at Walker Homestead. 

Time passes so quickly.... this month has been a flash.  I did manage to finish up a few things for my May listing on Arts Aflutter!  

Have a beautiful day wherever you are...

Earth Day Artist Banner

Earth Day is a little more than a week away, but it should be in our hearts and minds more than once a year.  That's the beauty of being a primitive artist.  Daily we embrace the concepts of reuse, recycle, revive, restore...

You are welcome to use this banner on your webspace, studio, or sales display! 

Have a beautiful day!

another new pattern

A rainy overcast day here, one of at least a few expected this week.  That's not a bad thing when you're a gardener, especially after our drought last summer.
Instead of working outside in the gardens today, I'm nesting inside and writing another pattern request. 
These little skeps have sold very well for me at the spring and summer shows. 
I hope to be finished and posted by this evening, if all goes well today. 

Enjoy your day!

I finally finished and got it posted.  Thank goodness because the computer was acting up all day!

 Now to work on a few kittycats for Crossroads.... special request.

Pattern Writing Today

Just a little quickie.... the weather is so-o grand here today..  This is hands down my  favorite time of year, just before everything springs to life.... so much promise.  It feels a bit like Christmas eve :-) 

I haven't written patterns since last year sometime.   It's hard to believe it's been so long.   I need a pattern writer for sure, because I'd much rather design and stitch. 

I have kept a list of requests, but am first trying to do some of the current ones while they're fresh on my mind.
I feel a bit rusty, but finished the first this afternoon. 

These little ladies were great sellers, both at Crossroads, and at the show.
I had an order for another set, and that worked out well.

Just  taking a break before the final proof reading, then I will post later this evening.

Hope you're having a beautiful weekend!

Merry Spring!

What a nice week it's been so far.  We started off by finishing up the tax work and unpacking from the show, a little at a time.  No big rush now that the show's over. It feels so good to relax again.
I'm working on some orders for most of the week, which is also nice.   I finished a luminary shop order yesterday, plus these eggs for a sweet deerfield friend, as they sold out before she got any.  I also wrote the tutorial while it was fresh on my mind!   

Today I'm making chicks in skirts and turnips, also both for orders.... they all sold out at Deerfield.   
Tommorrow I hope to take another trip to Crossroads with some more signs and some spring prims for the garden room.
The back door is open and the fresh air feels good.  I hope it's nice where you are!

Deerfield Spring Sampler Craft Fair

Thank you, thank you everyone who came out to see us.... It is such a tremendous rush to see you all, always, but even more so after being cooped up and enduring this harsh winter. I have come home with a very happy heart tonight.
It was an exhilarating but exhausting day. One more day to go 10 - 5 Sunday.. My  friend Linda and my son Josh were wonderful... such a tremendous help. I am so greatful for their support! It was a bit overwhelming at times even with their help! We were crushed with customers as soon as the doors opened and it continued like that for hours.

I still have some great pieces left, but it's definately thinned out a lot which will make packing to go home so much easier! That's a beautiful thing!

I've taken a few orders for things that were snatched up, and am willing to do a few more before starting in the gardens.   Also I have some more Easter things at Crossroad in Somers, Ct. 

A couple of booth pictures.... not the best, but whatever. I spent a bit too much time gabbing and forgot to take pictures til the doors opened. I had to move quickly at that point!
I jam-pack my booth for a show like this, because there is no way to refill once it gets busy.  If it looks cluttery that's why.  Almost everything I made for the show is out.... 
Well off to be a couch potato for a little while!
