Friday evening I attended the preview of the From Our Hands Show in Peninsula, OH. I've never been to a show with so many talented artists gathered in one place. I can't begin to describe how wonderful it was. If money was no object, I would have needed a U-Haul to bring my goods home.
Sorry the picture is so poor, but this was in the booth of Greg and Mary Schooner.
The next two pictures are the booth of Christine M. Miller of Somerset, PA. She is the mother of Rebekah Smith. I see where Rebekah gets her talent. One of Rebekah's daughters is a talented fraktur artist who also vended at the show.
I purchased the hanging star from Christine. Made from vintage fabrics and hand sewn, it is much more muted in person.
A couple pictures taken once the crowd began to thin.
My other purchases are this sweet little papier mache box by Pam Gill, tiny scissors from Stacy Nash (Christmas gifts if I can bear to part with them) and a little Schooner piece.
I am nearing completion of my challenge rug and finally decided on the wool for the dog after changing my mind many times. Once I started hooking him, I'm thinking the color (value?) is too close to that of the horse. I hope to go hooking tomorrow evening and will see what others think.
Yesterday I got together with a college roommate I hadn't seen in 20+ years. What a fun time. You'd think we had just seen each other last month. We vowed to not let another year go by when we don't get together. She's about 5-6 hours from me, but drove about 2/3 of the way here. Thanks, Kathy :) Sorry I did not get a picture :(
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
