confessions [of an artist].part.5

Hello friends.  It's the eve of a big craft show weekend for me here.
I feel like a bunny at the greyhound track.
Like a child at Christmas Eve.
Like a director on rehearsal night.
The anticipation. The excitement. The forgetting to breathe!
 I thought I'd share one more sneak peek at some of the newest additions to my craft table.
I love doing fabric hoops.  Usually I'm stenciling birds.deer.owls onto fun fabrics.
I wanted to incorporate some woodland landscapes this time.... and I love these ones!

As I survey my mounds of creations all around me here tonight... I realise that once again I have pounded out a crazy variety of stuff.  Call me A.D.H.D or spastic... but I just can't stay stuck on one project for long, I tend to bounce all over the place experimenting with new ideas.  The fear is I'll have my table so bogged down with this cacophony of creativity that you won't be able to SEE anything!

Phew.  Yes, friends, I have pulled out the stops for this show.  I really hope you can make it.  I adore every piece I've crafted this time... to the point that I feel a mother-bond to them.  So if you go to buy something don't be surprised if you have to pry it out of my pudgy fingers! 

But seriously, we the crafters would love you to buy local. support local artisans.  You can also pat yourself on the back for getting at your Christmas shopping! 

Back to painting my "Needle and Nest" sign,
