Art Mart 2015 Tolland, CT

Wreaths and garland, and arts and crafts –  that’s what this event encompasses and all sales support the Arts!

Volunteers create beautiful wreaths decorating them with dried florals from member gardens at a starting price of $25, how can you beat that.  Add works from a variety of artists, from bookmarks to oil paintings, and you can not only decorate your house but get unique gifts for the hard to shop for all in one stop!

I’ll be purchasing my wreath Saturday morning, don’t miss this Friday / Saturday event.  This is our last show this year.

My friend Donna and her family recently moved into their new home. She’s definitely feeling smothered in boxes which I can completely understand because I’ve moved a bunch of times.  Even though she’s overwhelmed with STUFF – I’ve decided to add to her STUFF with this house warming present – hopefully she likes it!!

It was nice to do some fun for me quilting (where for me = a gift for me to give). Doodling on a panel is always fun, especially when metallics behave nicely, even the Sulky Sliver (a flat metallic thread, like xmas tinsel,that sometimes can be a little temperamental to quilt with ) decided to cooperate.
