Long Time No See!
What a whirlwind two weeks! In case you missed me terribly and didn't know why I wasn't updating I was here:
The National Capital Cat Show in Chantilly, Virginia (same place, the Dulles Expo Center, but in the other building) where we were treated to the star attraction:
An Exotic Shorthair Calico who lives in the lap of luxury...
wheeled around on her throne. She literally stays in one position the entire time, totally relaxed. I saw her again later (when I didn't have the camera at hand, of course) lying on her belly with her chin propped on the roll of her fleecy bed and her front paws spread out in front of her...She was just too funny!
That show, as always, is fun and we love seeing all our old friends!
Then, no sooner back to Nana Sadie's studio, than work progressed on additional bags for the TKGA Greensboro Show last weekend:
This time, they provided lovely draping and table skirts. We took lots, but only one rack, as it was a smaller booth (10x8 instead of our usual 10x10). That 2 feet? What a difference it makes!
Next door was Natasha of Unplanned Peacock yarn fame. And behind my booth was Nancy Thompson of Sassafras Creations fame. I think you might notice that in the photo below of all my "haul" at the show, there's a Nancy creation - yes, that's right, down at the bottom there...
I simply love it. I picked up a pair of earrings at Sock Summit 09 two years ago, and have been drooling over bracelets ever since. I still have another pair of earrings and a necklace on my wishlist...
You might also notice that there's no yarn in that photo above? Nope. I didn't buy any. I'd ordered a skein of yarn from Jane (that is the yarn in that link) and knew I didn't need another thing. After all, Natasha is just a stones-throw away, Wyrd Sisters is only a couple of blocks, and my stash bins are full anyway. That pattern in the photo tho, is something I think I'll have to find yarn for. Nothing caught my fancy at Greensboro.
That was an interesting (and exhausting) show. Not sure I'll do another like it - too long, frankly, and pricey. Maybe I'll stick to my etsy shop for the next few months!
(low overhead is a very good thing!)
I missed ya'll!
