I signed up for an art show in my hometown in mid-June. I've been a little busy, trying to build up an inventory.
A few of the checkbook covers I've finished:
I've also done some spinning, but can't show that until the recipient gets it. Can't spoil the surprise now, can I?
I also made a prototype for a notepad cover.
It holds a little 3 by 5 notepad and pen. This one closes with a length of yarn wrapped around a vintage shell button.
I am also going to make a larger version big enough to hold a 4 by 6 wire-bound (on the top) notebook.
Preliminary preparations are being made for the Great Raccoon War of 08. My roofer has a young Redbone coonhound, as yet untrained. He (the roofer) brought Gunnar out yesterday to do some recon, but all young Gunnar was interested in was the llamas. He ventured into the pasture when we weren't looking. He thought he was going to scare them, but instead he came running out of the pasture, tail tucked as far under as it could go, long ears flapping in wind, and the whole herd hot on his heels. (Sorry for that unintended alliteration!) Wish I had a video of that!
