A big thank you to everyone who braved the weather to visit our open house! Elizabeth I had a great day visiting with everyone.
For those who couldn’t make it- here’s what you missed!
We had my big work table covered with Elizabeth’s Farmwurx ceramics , there were lots of mugs, bowls and treasures of all kinds. And my favourite Word Ware bowls… with their sometimes cheeky saying about for and eating. They are on the right hand side of the image below. If you see anything you can’t live without contact Elizabeth.
Those are my Imprint scarves hanging in the background- or at least the two that were left! It was so busy when we first opened I completely forgot to take any images…I know!I know! I do it all the time.
Our “flight of fancy” managed to survive the rain and damp, which is no mean feat when you consider the paper our birds are made of are reclaimed outcasts from the pulp mill. The paper itself is very stiff and difficult to work with -until it gets wet- or even thinks about getting wet- then it turns to mush!
“flight of fancy” ( I love this definition – “an idea which shows a lot of imagination but which is not practical or useful in real situations”) was hanging in the greenhouse- not the driest of places at the best of times but as you can see- it was raining, which made the definition really ring true!
As I mentioned above – and always seem to be saying – it’s been raining here. Ned and I have managed a few walks by the river but there’s been no swimming- he would be swept away!
Bye for now, Catherine
So sorry I missed it. Love the imprinted scarves that you had hanging there!
Looks great. I love the flight of fancy and am definitely in love with the polar bears
I know Maggie, the bears have such character! Glad you like our flight..it’s been a fun thing to create.
Catherine, thanks for posting the pics – your flights of fancy are very ethereal. I especially like the shot through the rain drops! I love the buttons – Elizabeth’s buttons and bowls are great! I see that at least one of your quilts was on the wall with a sale tag on it – Wish I could have been there to do some shopping!
The buttons are amazing Leslie, they are going to stay here in the studio if you would like close-ups. I’m working on a design for something ( anything!) so I can use them! Sorry you couldn’t come, maybe next year?
I would love a closeup of the buttons – they would be stunning featured on a piece! Thanks!
