Good Old Southern Fish Fry

Yesterday was the annual Fish Fry at my hubby's gun club.
There is always a big turn out and so much good food.

My sister and her hubby.


Getting ready to serve dinner. This whole serving area was full of food. Everything you could possibly want. The long foil lined thing was full of corn on the cob - with lots of butter.


There were activities for the little ones and
this mini shooting range was set up just for them.
They shoot little bb guns.


These hard working guys cooked fish, onion rings,
and home cut fries. They really had this big fryer going.


While the cooks were cooking and many hands were working on setting up the buffet, some got to relax and fish. That's my sister and her hubby on the far end, they didn't catch anything, but it was fun. The area is so beautiful this view is from the deck over looking the fish pond (not were our fish for eating came from) One person caught a turtle that was about a foot long, but of course let it go.


That's a lot of frying going on.


This big thing was full of corn, and it was oh so good.

We really had a good time and of course the talking always gets around to sewing. I took a new purse I'd made that morning to show to Paula and we talked over how to best edit the pattern. I really didn't like the way it went together. A real sweet lady came over to see what we were looking at and gave me a great idea of how to assemble it differently and we were all smiles. I'll try it today and it should make the process much easier/faster. Thanks! After the good dinner, oh and did I mention the tons of desserts - whew. They had a drawing for prizes. The kids drew the tickets out and read the numbers it was so funny cause they would get so excited. Every body had a good time. I just moaned on the way home cause I was so very full. Really shouldn't have had that cherry pie...couldn't help myself.

Holidays - Oh how I love them

I've just put the last show of the year behind me and now it's time to really get going for the holidays. I have a quilt on the machine ready to be quilted. Fabric stacked on the other machine ready to be cut. Canvases ready for backgrounds - well in other words - fun stuff a-plenty. 

The weather has turned cool - cold and it will soon be Thanksgiving. Since this is my first Thanksgiving in my new home we will have our dinner here. The turkey is waiting in the frig and the menu settled and the shopping done - I think I'm ready. 

For some reason the days before the holidays I always feel the need to do something new to the house. Why... don't you have enough on your plate? I guess not. Yesterday I painted an accent wall in the kitchen and hung a shelf and photos. The kitchen is yellow, it's a nice color of yellow, but I'm just not crazy about yellow. I went grey on this wall and I really like it.


This is only part of the wall, there are more photos etc, but this sh…

Another Big Change...

 that I'm thrilled about. 

Next week unless something unforeseen happens I'll be closing on the sale of my 1925 house in East Nashville and moving away from the part of town I was born, grew up and lived in for the bulk of 61 years. 

This little town is no longer little, or quite, or like I remember. It's growing by leaps and bounds. I like change don't get me wrong but this is too much too fast. I think it's great that for the first time in my memory there is a restaurant close enough to walk to. 
There are great little art galleries, shops and wonderful restaurants popping up all over the place. The meat and three I've eaten at for 15+ years is now very popular. All of this is good - great even. 

But now I want slow and quite.  I've heard that 90+ people a day are moving to Nashville! So I figure this is the time to sell my house and move out of town to a nice quite place. So I call a friend who just happens to be a great realtor and bam! She finds me a house…

Managing Time

One thing I have found during the last 10 months is I have trouble managing my time like I have in the past. Seems like distractions and life run all over the schedules I make. I sometimes wonder if I'm like the little dog in UP and get the squirrel distraction.
For what ever the reasons this blog has drifted off into my Scarlet area of "I'll deal with it tomorrow. "

With my first show of the year just a few weeks out I'd normally be in full swing of creating new pieces for the show. I have only started creating again a few months back and seem to be getting into the flow of working at my bench once again, thou now as regular as I did in the past.  Here are a few of the recent items.


 This brass butterfly was given a rusted look with alcohol inks. 
An old sewing machine bulb, the end of a fork and some wings created this pendant
The focal element of this necklace is from a vintage bracelet
Then one day I decided to get out the poly clay again.  I've not done anythin…
