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.

Sewing Withdrawal

With my next jewelry show a mere 15 days away I've needless to say been twisting and hammering to get new items ready. This will be the last show of the year and I really need to get busy with my Christmas sewing. I have 2 projects on the machine cabinet ready to jump into - but that will be after Nov 12 when the show is. I did combine my two loves last week thou when I was at Stefanie's sewing. I started the base for 4 different fiber jewelry projects. I've always wanted to make one of the big fiber bib necklaces and got a good start on that - it's not done yet thou. These smaller mixed media pieces are finished. 

Happy to say that I sold one of my fiber art wall hangings on my Etsy shop today.  It's always such a great feeling to know someone loves your work.  I like making wall hangings and post cards the best.  The freedom of knowing I can put anything into the art and  let my creativity run amuck is a wonderful thing.   So Stars In The Sand is now history.

Sewing Withdrawal

Well it's just been days since I've done any sewing - 7 as of today. I do feel like I'm not quite centered when no creating is going on. I have had time to squeeze in a little doodling but that's about it. 
With Earth day this month I wanted to share the tote bag I made from a bird seed bag.  There was almost nothing left over from the original bag. They only thing tossed out  was from evening up the bottom. The wonderful Edna showed me how to make this. The only thing you need to keep in mind is don't use your regular sewing machine needle. She had me get a leather needle and it worked great. I just used regular thread too. So now Angel has a big old tote for her treasure hunts at the flea markets/yard sales. The handles were cut off the top of the bag above where the pretty bird drawing is. 

This morning I finished up Angel's hand print zen doodle. I used water color pencils to color this in - you use very little water. Just enough to blend the colors. 


And speaking…

It's Cold out - stay in and create

The weather here has been very odd, freezing, 60's, snowing - so my desire to go out is nill. I've been working on jewelry pretty non stop lately. So I thought today I'd do some sewing! Oh my word I'm making little pot holders that are quilted. Don't be shocked. I've not given it up. Just have to get going on the new stuff for 2018. It's time for new designs and new techniques. 
So here are a few of the recent designs. 
I've been playing with smooth river stones and wrapping them in silk. Adding beads, wire and other bits of fiber. 
This one has several layers of silk hand dyed ribbon two hole and single hole beads and some wire wrapping on a leather cord. 
I've had this crinoid stem fossil for years and the other day when I looked at it I decided it's time had come. I added some of my favorite beads.  This was a plant at one time living in the ocean, just think.
Continuing to play with clay and this faux fossil is from my imagination, maybe it'…
