Gary and I and our good friend, Linda. spent the day at Ijams Nature Park in South Knoxville yesterday as vendors at the Meadow Lark Music Festival.  What a wonderful time!  The weather was perfect. The Music terrific and the people was so great.  I heard that last year they had around 300 people there.  Yesterday there were around 900.  Yee Ha!

This will definitely be one of the shows that we go back to.  They only had a small handful of vendors.  I'm sure they would like to have more.  Sales were good, too.

Today, I'm going to have lunch with my friends in the Women's Table.  I'm so blessed to have these women as friends.  We'll be gathering at one of the member's homes this time.  It's so much nicer that way.  We don't have to yell around restaurant noise to hear each other. 

I've decided to bite the bullet and sign up for a full both on my own for the Foothills show this November.  I'll need to get busy weaving now.  That's a lot of space to keep filled up for the whole show.  I have several projects in process and more on paper.  So, I should be ok.

TN Creates and Elm Grove Elementary Homecoming this weekend

I've been weaving up a storm lately.  June has turned out to be a busy craft show month.  Here are some of my newest scarves:

 These new items are already placed in my booth for the TN Creates Arts and Crafts Fair at the gym in the Oak Ridge  Civic Center.  The show will be tomorrow, Friday, 6/21, and Saturday, 6/22, from 10 am to 6 pm.  Come visit.

Directly across from my booth is the booth of Barbara Webb.  She has been a member of Foothills since it began.  I bought one of her hand painted drift wood pins when I was in High School.  I'm going to wear it tomorrow and show it to her.  Another fantastic artist there is Bill Capshaw.  He makes beautiful pottery.  He also has a wonderful voice.  I'm looking forward to hearing him sing again with the Soul Sanction when the ORHS class of 1968 has their union later on this year.



 Then, on Saturday night, after the Craft show ends, it's time for the 4th annual Elm Grove Alumni Homecoming.  This is always such a fun evening.  So many childhood friends all in one place.

I'm going to be selling my woven products and dyed loopers and looms this weekend and next. 

This Saturday, June 15, I will be at the Lavender Festival in a booth with other members of the Locally Grown Gallery.  I joined the gallery a few weeks ago.  We'll have the booth at Jackson Square and will also have the Gallery open.  The Gallery is just downstairs on the lower level of Jackson Square, behind the Soup Kitchen.  I hope those who can will come visit.

Then next weekend, Friday and Saturday, June 21 & 22, I will be selling and demonstrating my weaving at the TN Creates Crafts Fair.  This fair is sponsored by the Art Center of Oak Ridge and is part of the Secret City Festival.  We'll be in the gym at the Oak Ridge Civic Center.  My Mom worked there until she retired.  This nice article was published in the area Visions Magazine.

I've been weaving up a storm these past few weeks in preparation.  I've completed several commissioned items and have also produced some very pretty painted warp and weft soy silk scarves.  They feel so soft and silky. Here are some of them:
