A Day of Art

On Friday I got to go to an Art Market in Sugarhouse (Utah) with my friends Kathy and Deanie (my mother-in-law). It wasn't as big as I expected, but I was inspired and glad I went. I did pick up a few items. The theme was Valentine's which is not my favorite so maybe the next one (in May) will be better. Kathy thought it might be fun to sell some of the baskets we make at one of the shows. It's a juried show, so we auditioned a basket I made and the organizer of the event said that she loved it and would 'accept' us as vendors if we wanted. We'll see, I kind of don't like my baskets going to people I don't know, I'd rather give them to friends than to sell them to strangers!

We also ended up at Pine Needles, a quilt shop and embroidery shop in Gardner Village. I purchased some fabric that I would not normally have bought, but I'm involved in Pat Sloan's Orange Challenge Sew Along February 20th -22nd, so I thought the pieces would work well for that.

Yes, I understand what you are feeling, do you have to pay for the space(table) too, if so maybe you would not make as much money as the space.
It is funny about fabric and people, you would not usually use that fabric and I adore each and every piece. thank heavens there is so much fabirc in the world to choose from!!

I always hear of our art and craft shows after the fact. I just don't pay attention. I love giving my things away. Someone says I like that! I say, it's yours! LOL I wanted to do Pat's challenge but I'm just not an orange person. I have just a couple of pieces in my stash.
