I'm back....For Now

It did snow in Austin on Friday, but only light flurries that were melting upon impact, at least where we were. Houston actually got some accumulation, believe it or not! Set up wasn't nearly as bad as I had imagined, and actually went pretty quickly. My show was on the grounds of Laguna Gloria, which is gorgeous. I was set up under a live oak tree with the lake behind me, and we were quite chilly all weekend. I was really impressed with the shoppers who came out in the thirty something degree weather Saturday morning to see us. Sunday it rained a bit and that scared off the crowds, unfortunately. So it goes with outdoor art shows.

Here I am bundled up and sporting one of my new fiber pendants.

fiber earrings, hand embroidered silk and Japanese fabrics

some of my newest fiber pieces

this piece is the one that the most people are drawn to

Lucy didn't want to get out of bed this morning, and she wasn't the only one. I slept in, trying to recover from the weekend and my cough that won't go away.
I will be back in Austin this coming weekend at the Cherrywood Art Fair. I better get back to work...

Sorry you were rained out, but the setting was beautiful. Laguna Gloria is one of my favorite Austin destinations. Nice booth and love the piece "everyone was drawn to". Very gorgeous! My mom suffered thru many art shows with me too...brings back good memories! Love sweet! Good Luck next weekend.

Yes, my mom is awesome! I don't know how I will ever pay her back for all of her support and hard work.

The show wasn't a total wash out, Saturday was actually good despite the cold. I think I might do it again because it seems it would be worth the weather gamble. Such a cool place to have a show, for sure.
