Show pics, hooked rugs and more!

I have been meaning to post some pictures of my first show of the year. It was on Sunday June 10th, and it was a beautiful day, perfect weather, and we all had a wonderful time! The turnout for the show was down from last year, but I believe it was due to it being such a fabulous day to spend outdoors with family and friends. Here is a picture of my table, and the items I had for sale. I wasn't able to finish as many things as I would have liked for the show due to some health issues, so my table this year was a bit "light" compared to previous shows.
Here are some pictures of my friend Kathy's hand hooked rugs. She does beautiful work, and most of the rugs are her own designs. We shared a space together at the show, and had such a fun time chatting the day away!

Here are a couple of pictures of some antique rugs available for sale at the show. Aren't these fabulous! My favorite is the sheep one....so detailed!



Here is a picture of a charm pendant that I made as a special order for one of my customers this week....I just love cats, and I wanted to give him a festive look by placing him on a background of polka dots, and wearing a paper music crown. I am working on some new charm pendant necklaces, in bird and everyday themes per several requests, and hope to have them posted here this weekend for you to see, so please check back soon if you are interested.
I leave you today with a picture of one of my kitties...her name is Samantha. Her favorite place to sleep is up on top of my antique hat boxes. She spends much of her time up there! Until next time, I hope you all have a wonderful week. :)
