Pennsic Was Awesome

Hi everyone

Sorry its been so long since the last post but I've been a little busy, lol.  Pennsic was awesome.  I made many new friends, especially in the beading community. Yes, there are other tapestry beaders out there. Not many, but some. And I had the wonderful opportunity to meet 2 at Pennsic.

I put both looms in the A&S Display which sparked alot of interest. I was unable to stay with my display throughout the day because of my class being the same day.  The looms were quite heavy and I was only taking them down to town once.  To my surprise I was left several tokens on my display table including a silver ring and an absolutely gorgeous book.  Thank you to the many people who visited my display and espically to those who left cards and tokens. 

The Celtic Birds project is off the loom and finished, ready to hang.  It and the running dogs project are up for sale on EBay, Etsy and Artfire.  But for now I am looking for a gallery to display them in.  I'll keep you posted on that ordeal, lol.  But once the gallery owners see the pieces I don't think I will have much trouble displaying them.  I'll post pics of both finished projects tomorrow.

I have started the Aurora Wolf project.  440 beads across.  Takes and hour just to pick up and lay in one row.  I'm not to certain about the colors but as I continue the tapestry I'm hoping the colors blend together better.  I am also having doubts that i will have enough beads to finish the project....(sigh).

Yes, they are upside down.........

And most of all, thanks to Mistress Megan and my new mentor Brianna for fueling my beading creativity in whole new ways.  I now have bigger and much better things to come....
