Art In The Park…in review.

Art in the Park 2010 was a rather “coasty” day as a fine mist mingled with the artists, their wares and the curious public assembled at Sheldon Park this past July 4th.

She sells sea shells down by the seashore.Variety was the theme. Mediums such as seashells, cranberry vines, oyster shells, textiles and threads, homespun, glass, mixed media and paints and more were exhibited in creative and practical ways.Sparkling glass and mixed media catches attention. Beautiful handmade pottery.The pottery booth was absolutely full of the most beautiful handmade pieces. Very impressive. While the spinning and weaving booth was a buz of activity with women spinning wool right before my eyes and creating intricate woven fabric on a portable loom. I always want to dive right in and join these ladies whenever I see them at work!Rita is weaving yet another one of a kind piece of fabric.

And of course, us knitters and crocheters were there in full force. By nature we always seem to have plenty to do and even more to say, to each other and anyone else who will listen. We even got the crowd involved, teaching kids and adults to finger knit.

All in all, Art In The Park 2010 turned out to be a well attended, interesting and enjoyable time for everyone.

 Too many items to list them all but each and everyone of our artists are extremely gifted and offer something to enrich the lives and homes of each of us.

Thank-you to all of the artists who attended. You are AWESOME!

Zebras! Well, they weren’t actually alive…

See you next year for Art In The Park 2011!

Summer has struck!

One minute I was curled up in my warm cozy bed, wearing my warm cozy coat, cuddling my cat, Lucky, and the next minute  –  POW!!!!  –  Summer stikes! People here and there and everywhere, coming and going so fast I can’t keep track. Maria took off for a whole month and left me here, speechless, Mom is cooking up a storm and Dad wants nothing to do with this here computer. So if you have missed me half as much as I have missed you, relax and know that I AM BACK!

Art in the Park was a smashing success! Lots of people came to check out the handy work of our local artists. We will post pictures soon. I expect next year to be even bigger and better. With any luck the sun will shine for us in 2011  😎

The Tapestry Rose Annex in Tillamook is an instant hit with the Oregon Coast community. Candy and Teresa have fixed the place up so darn nice. If you haven’t been down there to see it, you really must go! They have even started their own knitting group….the Rosetta’s Too (2, two, II). Busy, busy, busy.

Here at the mother shop, we’ve just gotten in a fresh assortment of Fame Trends. I’m tellin ya, this is some fiercely beautiful sock yarn.

Here are a couple of ideas/projects made from Fame Trends.

You will have to contact Swedish Yarns about the patterns.

There is so much more to sock yarn than socks!

  I’m headed out the door now. I’ve got deer to chase, flowers to roll in and sun to soak up. Talk to you again soon.

Licks of love,
