some photos from this weekend's Open Space

Not the greatest pics but you get the idea. It was really fun. Lots of traffic. Justin sold a beautiful side table. I would definitely do it again next year.

The dark spot is, however, that J and his band have now lost the space. It's a big room that his band, I'm better now, uses. We showed our art in the front unused room that J had spent many hours cleaning. Apparently the management was unhappy that we tore up some broken floor tile that may have contained asbestos. It was a misunderstanding but they were also looking to get rid of the band because they could probably get more money for the space. I'm pretty sad about it as is Josh. But, those demons will still not win and we'll just find a better space
without asbestos. Thank you J for all your hard work and support. I would not have done any of this without you and your strength.

another wedding

Cappy invited me to assist her with another wedding. The hampton's this time. Really lovely except for poor Granny with may have broken her hop on the dance floor!

Obviously no pictures of the actual wedding . I'm not so comfortable taking pictures of people. I leave that to the experts.

Did I mention that I'm participating in Beacon Open Studios this weekend?Did I also mention that I have 5 days to create some art and get the studio in order( although J has been busting his ass for me getting it cleaned and painted. I have a very good man by my side). So why I am I here on the computer instead of on the sewing machine working some magic? Well , J would say this is art too and it counts. But the truth of it is, that I'm a bit nervous about calling myself an artist so I'm intentionally self-sabotaging myself by doing this instead of making art for the show. There. I've said it. I'm going to make some art now. Wish me luck.
