Painting






I've also been playing in the paint. This project was fun. I bought a black canvass and put green tape down where I wanted trees. After the background is painted then the tape is removed and the trees can be painted.

12 so far

So far I've got 12 snow drops finished. They are really fun to make. Saturday is my Christmas market. I know one is already spoken for. I hope the rest find people who like them as much as I do.

Dianes Ice Drops

These are Diane Cademartori's (Lace-Lovin' Librarian) beautiful ice drops. I'm enjoying making them up. Do I need to stiffen them? Also, do I need to put frosty sparkles on the white ones? I want them to be used for Christmas decorations.

More slippers

I'm still knitting away at slippers. I enjoy not having to think too much as I knit them.

Slippers

I had a lady at my last craft fair ask for men's slippers. I tried to find out what size she wanted, but she didn't know. I've taken a chance and made these in size 10 1/2. They are chunky yarn in a double strand. They were not easy to make as when I needed to decrease it was a lot of thickness to go through. So I'm wanting to get $15.00 for the yarn and my trouble. I hope someone will want them. I'll never do another pair like that. Too hard on the biceps. They should be nice and warm though.

More Bookmarks

I haven't tired of these yet. I enjoy the colors and those beady eyes.

Market last weekend

My market went quite well. There wasn't the turnout that was hoped for. I think part of that was because the craft fair was advertised as a trade fair and some people weren't interested in a trade fair as much as they might have been if they knew it was a craft fair.
I realized I need two tables now a days. I went back to our Ag society and paid for a second table. Now I can make more things and feel rest assured I'll have space.
I had two people ask for slippers. So when I'm done a few more bookmarks, I guess I'd better get the knitting needles out. I was so enjoying the tatting. I do want to make some of Lace-lovin-librarians lovely snowdrops. Hopefully I'll have time.
The Christmas market isn't until Nov 25. So I have two months.
I forgot to take some pictures of my tables. Oh well, I'll try to remember in Nov. No guarantees. My forgetter has been working overtime lately.
Well now I'm gonna look for a picture to post. I like seeing pictures.
Here's an object my husband picked up at the garage sale. I don't know what it is. I'm sure it's not for pitting cherries. I've sent it to Our Canada magazine to see if they'll publish it. Then maybe someone can tell me what it's for.
