So far, there are 20 items for the Earth Challenge. I expect more Friday. This show is open to Bagettes, Cakeeaters, and Running With Scissors members. This will be a humdinger of a show. Be sure you are included. You people are very creative, and talented.
Give me your entry by Friday, along with a check for $15, and an item the size of a greeting card, for sale for Food Gatherers. Remember there are prizes, too.

I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving, and time to spend together with family and friends. Hopefully all the seasonal household preparations are done by now, and you can put your feet up for a while. Life is fleeting, memories last beyond your time.
This happy group at Two Twelve Arts, made Christmas stockings for Saline Social Services. It was the first gathering of the holiday. On December 5, come to the Holiday Art Sale at Two Twelve. Thirty artists will display a wide range of wonderful things for sale. And there will be free gift wrapping of your purchases. Do all your shopping, and let us wrap it up for you.

There are 18 pillows with faces, so the count is 334. They are Naughty or Nice pillows. They say "Naughty...I intend to stay this way", and "Naughty is my best behavior," as well as 16 more things. They are all different, hand drawn, and painted.
I had extreme amounts of fun today. It was so fun, it was almost toxic. I can hardly wait to share this fun. I made all these felt flowers, and more. And I'm getting a die cutting system so I can do it at home. I promise, this is dangerously fun. I'll call it all just one item, number 316. But wow, it was much more than one point of fun.

I spent almost the whole day cleaning out my fabric stash. With the stuff I gave away yesterday, there are 9 bags of fabric. This allowed me to put the stuff that was in bags in the closet, and in the corner, on shelves. So, I have a pile of African wax resists, stripes, dots, ones I dyed myself, 2 piles of Kaffee Fassett prints, 2 drawers of batik scraps, a box of sparklies, a box of banner fabrics, and more, organized and ready to use.
And I put some of the felt away in big boxes. There is more to do. I have to find a place to store the roving, and another felt box. The room feels bigger. I have a backache.
Sparkling Poinsettias now hangs by the front window at My Favorite Cafe.
I added the Three Days of Christmas to the show at My Favorite Cafe. It hangs in the corner of the south room.
The Sunflower on Blue is replaced by this, Gourds and Asters.
