In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.
I have been waiting to write a post about the 2012 New Castle ArtFest until after I settled back in and got comfy again. Truly, it was shocking how quickly the turn of events happened. And all I keep saying in my head (until I believe it)…you can’t control Mother Nature. Well, Mother Nature apparently did not want me to profit from this venture and decided to kick my ass.

And I couldn’t resist, I had to make one more Tatterpillar for the show. This Inchworm is cruising through a handcrafted garden on a 3″x 3″ x 2″deep collectible box. I spent hours tatting and sculpting the little guy, couching the tatted leaves to the linen, filling the centers with satin stitch, and adding all the little colonial knot flower buds. The garden was then trimmed and secured to the padded lid of the box, surrounded by handmade cable and fully lined with olive colored felt.
Inch by Inch…Life’s a Cinch.

These designs are new and not listed in my Etsy shop, like the gallery in my last post. All items from my shop will also be going to the show so stop over there to peek at everything that will be available.
This upcoming Saturday and Sunday all one-of-a-kind work, Fiber Art and Snappy Couture will be deactivated to avoid work being purchased both at the show and on Etsy. The remaining items will go on a MTO (made to order) status which will be updated depending on whether it was sold when I return.
