Calm before the Storm ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!

One full day to go before we open the gates once again to our
Gathering of Primitive Friends Show
here on September 19th
{this Saturday!}
10:00 - 4:00

I am in the final stages of insanity completion for many projects, 
but still have lots to do…

my little sewing room is on it's….ear.

I chose to capture it in it's crazy-stage…between project beginnings and finishes.
I also chose black & white photos to not shock you too much 
{it looks like Walt Disney threw up in here with all of the colors of wools, paints, fabrics and threads!}
*I apologize, Mr. Disney…I have thee utmost respect.*

half-sewn projects hanging from the rafters & lamps…
fabric scraps are absolutely everywhere.

but it's ok.

~ this is normal for me at this point.
this is my Zen.

buzzing and humming along to my own beat and rhythm 
enjoying the processes of my creative flow.

I will bask in this mess for a little while longer…
then after the show I will begin the clean up.
~ until the next wave comes!!

I have heard from SO many of you that will be coming out to visit us Saturday!!

the weather-man is predicting beautiful sun & some-what warm temps, 
...so please remember to dress accordingly for an outdoor show.

if you will be bringing a fur-friend along with you, please be respectful of others and leash them :)
{we love fur-friends!!}

Creative minds are seldom tidy! That's always been my excuse and I'm sticking with it. See you tomorrow!
