Off on an adventure....


Three black wooly cats went to town today and can be found at "Imagine".  I am mostly packed and ready for our trip to France. We leave Thursday morning and will be gone for two weeks. So looking forward to our workshop with Julie Arkell. Made a couple of hooked hearts for little gifts....


Hoping to meet Nathalie Lete in Paris and see her wonderful studio. Love her colorful folksy style and all the different mediums she works in.  Dear friend Pepa gifted me with a Nathalie blue bird plate this week- a belated birthday present. Perfect timing! Thank you, Pepa!


Last week we had a "trip" meeting and took some time to visit the Art Hus in Solvang.Here are a few of the very cool hand made items in the shop.  Scissor maidens by Sue...


Cindy Knight's sparkly figures and jewelry...



Sukey's colorful crochet...


Syd's paintings and Colleen's house pin cushions...
  

.


and  little fabric wall hanging I made a bit ago.

Back in a couple of weeks! Hope you have a great beginning of summer and 4th of July!
