Gallery Day!

Yesterday I worked at the Coast Collective Gallery, the Victoria Bonsai group was there doing demo's and boy was it cool! The current show in the Gallery is called Blooms! so the bonsai's fit in perfect! Really a fun day. I have three pieces in the show, pretty exciting for me as this is my first appearance in a gallery show!

Sewing Show

I was at the Sewing & Craft Show last weekend and had a great time! Very organized, some great classes and lots of people! I had a lot of my buttons and they were well received I also had some requests for some different styles I am going to give a go at this week. The picture is courtesy of the ladies across the row from me who were very nice! Thanks to my Mom and sister for all the help!

Fancy Blue Jeans

The silver class has got ideas back into my head (which is a GOOD thing!) I love making these earrings, the findings are a bit fiddly to solder but the end result is worth it I think. They are very comfy to wear, they hang directly below your ear lobe instead of in front like with a regular shepards hook.

The Beach and Annie

Vicky took me to the beach Monday before I left and the views are amazing!! You can see waves rolling in from miles away. Lots of gorgeous sandy beaches and lovely cliffs.

One of the dogs who comes into the shop is Annie. You'll notice the sign in the lower left hand side of the window! She sure looks like a guard dog doesn't she?


I am home from my long and fun filled trip to Pt Townsend and Chinook! I am tired but happy to be home. My pictures were sporadic even though I had full plans to take pictures the whole time!

Here is a picture of the lovely ladies in my second class! I forgot to get a class picture of the first class! I really do need to get better at taking photos.

I've also got some pictures of the bridge we went over TWICE to get to Astoria! Those who know me know I have a fairly decent fear of bridges and this one is long and very high at one point. Vicky, Marion and Chrisann did a pretty good job of keeping me calm and occupied!

First Class

I'm in Chinook Wash doing a class and having a great time!! This is Marion holding a boxer puppy. Terry (puppies Mom) was in the class and her husband stopped by with the puppy a couple times to say Hi. I just think her face is adorable!!!
