Admittedly I don’t have much left to sell, but it’s a great opportunity to see where a number of wonderful artists work and there will be loads of their work for sale. Hope to see you there!

Contextural Artisan Sale

Our very succesful sale is all over, but I wanted to share a few shots taken after set up. I don’t think you can imagine the chaos  that was evident a couple of hours earlier when a dozen people arrived with all their goods and we had to start “making the magic”! It was enough to make us all crazy, but within a couple of hours we had everything set up and everyone was happy (I think). Here goes:sale 1sale 2sale 3sale 4sale 5sale 6sale 7sale 8sale

Something has changed on this website and I’m not sure what this post will look like, but I don’t have time to play around so I hope you can see everything clearly.

Next post I’ll try to share what I’m up to – assuming I can load the photo that I need…

The Power of Suggestion

Last post I mentioned that my head was going to explode – with ideas, and now I have a cold that makes me feel like it’s actually going to happen! I’ve been fighting against being sick since the first sign of a sore throat on Tuesday evening. Everyday there has been a change, for the worse, even though I am mostly staying home, resting and drinking all the fluids I can manage. (Also taking Tylenol and using an inhaler.) Obviously not enough. Today I lost my voice. I don’t think it has ever been such a complete loss – very strange experience to be certain. Too bad my children aren’t around to enjoy the silence! But life goes on.

Yesterday was the annual Show and Sale of my fibre group – Contextural. It was a fabulously successful day for everyone involved. I managed photos before and after the sale, but I was in too much of a haze to remember to take photos during the day. Drat. I wanted to show you the crowds and how the sunlight bathed the room! It was just lovely. Here are a few photos from the show after we set up on Friday night.partial view of show one view of show Here are a few detail shots of various display areas:assorted sale goods India silk scarves aprons and tea towels pillows woven and printed textiles scarves and pin cushions scarves and bagsLast night I had trouble sleeping because I was coughing, and when I wasn’t coughing I couldn’t sleep because I was overwhelmed with ideas for next year’s show. There must be some truth to the expression “No Rest for the Wicked!”

What a grand bazaar!

One last post from Istanbul – images of the grand bazaar. It is always festive, colorful, hustling, bustling, amazing and totally overwhelming. I love it.
