"Jelly Bowl" Inspired by a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
It's summer here in New England, and what a great season its been so far. I've been able to enjoy a terrific three generation family gathering, a way-too- close encounter with a sea gull on a picturesque visit to the big rock called Sequin Island, and of course had the annual lobsta feast. My travels so far this year have given me sketch books full of ideas, and I'm having a ton of fun working on a real variety of projects.
I've spent a fair amount of time this year looking at maps. Trail maps, road maps, I keep seeing paths, journeys, the trips of our lives. So this summer I introduce my "Happy Trails" series. May we all have some sparkle as we "head on down the road!"
August bring us to the granddaddy of fine craft shows, The League of NH Craftsmen Annual Craftsmen's fair in Sunapee, NH. I just can't say enough wonderful things about this show. It's an experience; I oh so encourage you to come for a visit. In addition to the 200 or so booths, there are demonstrations, opportunities to try your own hand at creation, chairlift rides to the top of the mountain, swims at the base of the mountain, and, back by popular demand, local music to enjoy during your visit. Please come! We'll be in Tent 2 (same spot as last year!). www.nhcrafts.org
Then, as you know about me, after the mountains, it's time to go to the sea! One August 27th I'll be a part of the Maine Crafts Association one day show in downtown Portland, Maine. I'm excited to be a part of this special show and know that a day on the coast of
Maine can't be beat. mainecrafts.org/programs/portland-fine-craft-show/
I hope you can join us this summer; we'll be happy to see you! and did I mention all the new stories we have this year??
