Ty and I are exhausted after the long weekend at the annual Art in the Park in Boulder City, NV,
There were more than 500 artists at this show, and it seemed to me that the art itself was better than ever - we were really impressed with the variety and level of skill this year.
So, as if it wasn't exciting enough to find Terese Cato just four booths down the way from us, how thrilled I was to find THIS on the front of her booth!!
It was such a pleasure to meet her, and she was so genuine and warm, and sincerely touched to have won first place for contemporary crafts. And what a thrill to see a fiber artist take this honor in the midst of so many different artisans - it somehow made me proud as well!
Of course, I took a few more pics in her booth..
Isn't she amazing? I am sure she would appreciate a congratulatory comment if you have a minute to check out her website!
OK, back to the big clean-up, and hopefully some stitching as well :-)
Oh, but look what I spotted while making coffee this morning!
This little guy will really make washing dishes more enjoyable:-)
