Thought you might enjoy seeing this photo of the big maple in our neighbors yard now that all the leaves are gone! It is still a beauty with or without its leaves.
It was another gorgeous day here in Northern WI! I think mother nature is trying to lull us into thinking winter won't come this year! Ha! Fat chance of that! LOL! This whole next week is supposed to be nice though!
Makes it hard to stay indoors and concentrate on my projects in the studio.
The last couple of weeks after finding out that my rug hooking class was not going to take place I had to shift gears and engage plan B. All along I had a feeling ( intuition if you will Julia! ) that this time of year is not a good time for most people to take a class. I will try again in Feb. to teach another class at the tech. school. A much better time of year for being indoors and when people are thinking of perhaps learning a new craft or hobby. So what is my plan B?
I need to have some sort of way to raise some moolah to start paying for that Townsend cutter I bought a while back. So I have decided to participate in a well established craft show that is held once a year here in the parochial school. The proceeds from show admittance and food goes to help the school and students. It has been a very well attended show with lots of crafters and vendors. It is held each year on the Sat. in Nov. when deer hunting season opens. Deer hunting season in WI is celebrated like a Holiday! LOL! When the menfolk head for the woods ( although lot's of women hunt too) women go in droves to the sales, shops and shows held through out the area.
So....... crafting it is for this rug hooker! Oh yes, I plan to exhibit a rug or two and I am working on one right now that I will offer for sale!
