Open House and Visitors

Open Studio

We had a very successful studio open house May 23rd.  Thank you to everyone who came out to visit and support us!  The new studio is working out so well for us.  We all enjoyed the wonderful and very tasty appetizers prepared and served by our talented and hardworking cooking friend, Patty B. and our eldest daughter, Sarah.  All our jewelry and artwork was displayed beautifully with the artful eye of our youngest daughter Molly.  She never ceases to be our cheerleader and behind the scenes supporter.  Anyone who purchased a piece got to meet Molly and her husband Joe - they were our check out crew for the evening.  If you missed this one please watch your email for the the fall open house invitation and join us for fun, food and conversation!

Heralding Spring
The wrens have been singing their little hearts and souls out for a month or more.  Can't believe they can keep singing from sun up to sun down!

We have had lots of other visitors to our spring yard including a wild turkey.  It may not be unusual for some of you to see such  sight, but we live in a very busy, house after house area.  From our new covered summer porch we have been watching all kinds of birds visiting our yard.  Curt caught a picture of the red bellied woodpecker working up and down on one of our maples.  Now our yard is coming alive with all of the roses.  Hope everyone is enjoying this great Michigan spring!

Dresser Runner

I have been working on a runner sewn with Kaffe Fassett fabrics for our new bedroom.  This picture shows two different choices for the binding.  I think the dot fabric from the border wins out because I don't want the binding to be more colorful than the runner.  I stitched leaves and curly lines along the borders.  I followed my friend Kat's suggestion and stitched arches along the middle sections.  I'm happy with the results even though I still need a lot more practice AND it took me hours!  I'm so slow at this but I know I will improve!  Back to finishing the binding.....
