We had 2 beautiful market days. It was hot, sunny and there was a little breeze. Well actually, there were a few BIG breezes which were a tiny bit too exciting but my tent weights kept me safe. I was happily situated next to several friends which is so helpful when you need to borrow some little thing.
Here is the first day set-up.
This was the fantastic view out the back of my tent in the morning as we were setting up.
This is a few hours later- the grass was covered with sunbathing bodies.
Then on Sunday, I rearranged the dolls on the panels. I always think it might make a difference but really, it never does.
And packing up at the end of Sunday- the Brooklyn Bridge in the background.
We drove home yesterday (Tuesday) after having some recreational NYC time. We had a great time away from home. Brooklyn is such a fun place to hang out for a few days. I loved meeting blog readers (you know who you are and Hello again!), people who were seeing my work for the first time, and all kinds of enthusiastic Market goers. Today, I am back to work. I’ve got a lot of computer stuff to do- emails, etsy (I’ll be listing some of those dolls I finished up during the weeks leading up to the Market), blog stuff… all that not-studio work. My next big event is San Francisco Renegade, July 21 and 22.
It’s here! This is the weekend!
I’ve got everything priced and tagged and ready to go (hopefully!).
I’m in Booth #15. I’d love to meet you in person if you are in the NY area!
This toile is so much fun, with skeletons doing all their skeleton-y country living.
I don’t believe that “swimming with the fishes” would be an appropriate title, right ;^)
I wish her jacket was my size.
Bride and Groom!
I know I usually have a bunch of photos, but not today. I have a brand new computer (Yeah!) but there is always a learning curve. I can’t figure out how to make the new IPhoto do what I knew how to do in the old one (Boo). And, I am simply too busy with the show prep to spend a few hours on it. So, later.
But, just so you know, his vest matches her dress. A perfect couple.
First I thought he was a birdwatcher but then decided it was more likely mushrooms or beetles that are his specialty.
In his vest-
You can see the forest lining of his vest in this photo-
A close-up of the accessories-
I wanted to make another fox based on this guy. I love that guy! I’d used up all the madras so I moved on to to 70′s plaids that I have in my stash (Thanks Mom!). I love this plaid. I made myself a shirt from it last summer so we might match when we get to Renegade Market in Brooklyn.
His vest is made from a shirt of my Dad’s- probably 60′s era.
I’m in the mood to make some more swaddled babies. It has been a year since I’ve done any. I went back and looked at some of my favorites and used one as inspiration for this sweet sleeping baby.
I enjoy the fun of fitting the birds together like a puzzle.
So, I’ve got one done! I’ve got more stuffed and another with the appliques cut out and basted on. But, now I am working on foxes. It is that time of year.
I am making myself frantic getting ready for the Renegade Market in Brooklyn- 2 more weeks!. I probably will not be posting anything else to my Etsy shop until after the show. But, if you are interested in buying something that I post here, just shoot me an email. I am always happy to sell directly.
