The theme until the end of November is kitchen tools. I have so many gadgets, utensils and the like that I thought it would be interesting to see everyone else's too. A member of the group, posted a couple weeks back, a bowl filled with rolling pins and what not for all to enjoy. If you have not joined www.flickr.com yet, you would be pleasantly surprised at all the inspirational images people download. Great stuff....

The weekend past was spent in wonderful surroundings featuring the work of Pat, Sean and I (from right to left)throughout Pat's home. I will write more later but, for the interim here is a link to recent uploaded files on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/mossnbeads/sets/1220160/
It was a most successful venture and one that we are going to also do in the Spring of next year.

My view for the trip, the back of Sean's and Pat's craniums
Our 3rd stop and very much a welcomed surprise. Inside were fused glass pins and handsewn creatures
A wonderful wood workers shop in the mountains. He uses slabs of wood from all over the world in his work. Here are also pics of his vast inventory of materials.

The light in the labradorite star is amazing!
This multi-needle felting tool covers too much of an area to do the detail work..
but, look at this thing.... Another new purchase from www.peacefleece.com
Waiting to be spun, embellished and wet felted!
After arranging a sheet of roving on the mat, Lou pour the hot soapy water all over its surface.
Work it in evenly....
Rolls the piece up between the bamboo mat and towels to start the rolling friction, process...
Rolling for about 10 minutes with checking in between to adjust creases.
Beautiful sheet of felted wool!
She has been felting on the living room floor as of late w/thick plastic under. These mats were purchased from Big Lots back in June for the classes she taught at ECCOTA. They are actually beach mats..

This is a lovely event put on by the 3 of us. I have been teasing you with our work, on my blog, for months now. If you find yourself in the area the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd do come by. Call or email for directions firstname.lastname@example.org or 814*512*1209
Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you......
These are just beautiful!
Sean Huntington's work
The show was extremely slow with the cold, rain and the like. We made some good contacts for the upcoming Artist Openhouse we are having on the 22nd and 23rd of this month. Our displays were very nice and got a lot of attention, it just takes so much energy to load up, set up, tear down, load up and then unload at home. Atleast I did not have to worry about the Trimline canopy this time or be one of those poor souls who were displayed at Wildcat Park OUTSIDE.

I treasure this wicker oval table that I inherited from my Great Aunt Wilda.
Pomanders galore both traditional and medieval types.

Monday Night Dinner entry to: http://www.flickr.com/groups/96074209@N00/
Roasted a ham scored it with cloves and pineapple/mustard/brownsugar glaze. I skewered the pineapples and cherries for roasting in the drippings. Ham gravy over masheds and dressing is just too good.
To see more of lastnight at the Farm go to http://www.flickr.com/groups/realizationsofpennsylvania/
We also went to Texas Hot in Kane for supper. I just cannot seem to get away from ordering the Chicken Soulvaki every time.
