Thankfully, Norma has invested in a nice foam floor which goes down first, then the drapes and we start hanging quilts.
Ready for customers.
Jen Kingwell's quilts are the pieced designs and colors that I love.
These quilts are made from silk and I visited them countless times. My photos don't do them justice. I'm trying to think of a new project just so I can buy the silk.
Are you familiar with the saying, "you can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear"? This purse definitely didn't come from a pig's ear or any other part! Small machine embroidery stitches cover the seam lines but what I found amazing was that the main design elements are all beads. I see a beading book in my near future.
Directly across the aisle from us was Blackberry Primitives with their collection of hand-dyed wool. Talk about temptation - yes, I gave in.
This sign reads, "Please Use Hitching Rail". We saw many Amish in their carriages and parking lots have separate areas with hitching rails to tie up the horses.
Now I have a secret - while at market I purchased supplies for a new project. I will make it this week and share with you soon, and I will have kits available too. Here's a hint: it includes wool and embellishment - surprised?
