June 10, 2010

Well, this is turning into a very busy month for me. I went out to Rome, NY last weekend where my Central New York Doll as Art Guild has a show of dolls running for the month. June 4th was the opening day. The place is beautiful and the dolls all look stunning. I have a few of mine out there and they fit right in. Maybe someone will want to take one home? You never know. Grandfather Cloud walker is out there and looking as wise as ever. A couple of pictures of the ladies and some dolls...

I've been taking an on line course about viking knitting from Adele Sciortino. She does amazing work and has a wonderful online magazine that she publishes quarterly - just for joining her site you can subscribe. I love Viking Knit (it creates the chain for the necklace) and the beading is wonderful. I've included a few pictures of my piece.

This Friday, I go to Camp of the Woods in Speculator, NY for a church convention. I'm only staying one night I think and am looking forward to it. I'll try and take a few pictures. Speculator is beautiful and Lake Pleasant is gorgeous. There is a true paradox where Lake Pleasant and Paradox Lake join. The water meets and creates a small whirlpool that goes counter clockwise. I saw it years ago when I was canoeing on the lake. Don't tell anyone but back then I went snowmobiling on the lakes and in the woods of Speculator too. Not sure I would do that now in my wiser years. (But you never know....) :0)

Have a lovely - I know if I don't start my Patriotic Prim Doll soon I will miss the challenge dead line and that would not be nice - so think good thoughts for me that I get it done. More later -

About Me

My photo

I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years.  I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories.  I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent.  I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish.  Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years.  There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now.  My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls.  Who could ask for more than that?
