Some News and Other Stuff

Oh, dear! Halloween already - we had about half a dozen trick or treaters knock at the door. October has been a very busy month of production.

Late September, I found out that my submission to Craft Nova Scotia (craft council) was accepted and that I could participate in the Craft Nova Scotia Christmas Craft Show, Halifax, November 16  - 18. While I'm doing this show, Jill, my daughter, be be at the Christmas Market at White Point Beach. That one is by invitation.

Jill and I are also doing the Christmas Craft Village, November 9 - 11. I tried to do Christmas at the Forum but it was filled. We will also be at the Dalplex Christmas Market, December 23 - 25. Both these will also be in Halifax.

The first weekend of December, you will find us at the Lunenburg Christmas Market, which is much closer to home.

All the above contributed to my intermittent blogging because, frankly, I had to get my head around doing all these shows and having enough work produced to sell.  In St. John's, I did two Christmas fairs: the Christmas Craft Fair, Craft Council of NL, and the Anna Templeton Christmas Tea and Sale.

Over the next little while, I will be showing some for the things made for the above markets.
Here are some of the newest Fibre Art Pendants, with more to finish. These photos are a bit darker than they actually are.

I also post photos to Instagram @jctextileart  as it's so easy to do via my phone.

On Fire!

A couple of days ago, I caught these flaming colours of the trees in the back yard, just as the sun was rising. Yep! I was up that early. The light was perfect.

Shorelines and Sundaes

Last evening, my daughter, Jill, had a showing of new work in Mahone Bay, NS. Shorelines and Sundaes was an Art and Ice Cream Pairing at Get The Scoop. A very unique flavor was created to compliment Jill's 'delectable' art. It was delicious! I understand some very nice liquor was used to soak the cherries.

Have a peek at the new pieces:

Beach Babes

Brisk Wave
Charging Crescent
Swimsuit Pool
You will find Jill's previous show of art pieces HERE.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my family and friends!

These pumpkins were grown locally. It's great to see such fun stuff at the local nursery and bakery.
