That's Entertainment ~

some of you say that I'm 'energetic', or 'lively'…
{I'll give you that.}

but I received a few photos from friend Pat Cross this morning, 
that she thought I should post here
to show the 'real' me 
interacting with what she calls my 'audience' 
at the show on Saturday…

I can't help the way I get when I'm out & about with folks ~
especially folks that share the same love for handmade items & needlework-things…
I just get so excited to see you!

so here goes,
hopefully these will entertain you a bit:

yack yack yack…pack pack pack.

"oh little Town of Bethlehem"…oh wait. I wasn't singing!

"blah blah blah & then some…."
{why Miss Joan ~ you look bewildered!}

"that's my story & I'm sticking' to it…"

wow ~ I look like a fish….
...wonder what I was talking about at that moment?
~ oh! I think it was blending valdani & dmc threads.

thanks Pat & Tom ( I think) for the snaps…
was so good to see you both at the show!

here is the little heart & hand mat I was hooking on at the show,
all finished up.
I didn't really have a lot of time at the show to hook on it,
... but I brought it with me to show how I use my Hookinpunch© frame.

hand-cut & #8 cut strips on linen…
just something to keep my hands busy :)

looks like a stained-glass window?

and after seeing Rebekah L. Smith's
MOST-AWESOME woolies & applique, 
I decided to humor myself into thinking I could do the blanket stitch…
I can do it, but just not as good as she ~
practice practice!!!

I prefer to use a whip-stitch and thin linen thread…
what do you think?

Ok, it is a C O L D one out there today ~
only in the 30's with a wind-chill of who knows what.
the chickens are laying ice cubes!

I have a big pot of spaghetti sauce bubbling on the wood stove, 
~ and am UNdecorating for Hallowe'en…

now it's time to pull out Christmas!!!!

~ hoping you all have a snuggly day ~

* Blessed be *

Well I mean, how would it look if you sat behind your table like a grump? It looks like you had a great time, and I love your cute sweater.

Just looks like you were having fun meeting your shoppers ....Love your new hooked matt & think your blanket stitching looks great !

Tammy Franck said...

Enjoyed your photos and the funny comments under them. And your blanket stitch looks pretty good to me! Looks just like mine.


Linda Ann Evans said...

I applaud you for sticking with the blanket stitch...I cannot, for the life of me, do it...at all. Your stitches look nice and even. I love the pic of you "singing"...I laughed out loud. Looks like such a great show.
Stay warm,

I meant Robyn...obviously, I can't type...or spell either!

Beth L. said...

We are doing "primitives" so the blanket stitch doesn't need to be all that perfect.......does it?????

Kathy F said...

Too funny!! I'm a big believer in being able to laugh at ourselves!! Great post....you're just "animated"...as in the fish! Lol. I sure wish I could have been there to sing with you!! Thanks for the chuckle!!

Kathy L. said...

I love your sense of humor! Look forward to meeting you at a show someday. Love your handwork.

Lori Ann Corelis said...

We SO loved having you as a part of the show!
I always wish there would be more time for chatting...but we did what we could! Thank you for your amazing artistry as well!

Glad you were inspired to blanket stitch! :-)
