ilovefiberart FUN with Garden Deva!

If there is anything more fun than sewing & making art & is doing it with great friends! Last weekend's Garden Deva show in Tulsa was a grand success, with fun had by all! Lisa Regan aka the Garden Deva once again showed that she is a generous supporter of local artists, musicians & craftspeople by hosting 2 days of party & show.

Suzi Swinford's & Joe Staskal's incredible pottery & stoneware were among my favorites! Also, Lisa Regan's furniture & fireplace screens, horse sculpture garden-stakes, Maggie Connolly's jewelry, Angie of Blair B Design's relic jewelry & Terri Higgs' silk scarves were amazing!

Here is a shot of my booth, with Suzi Swinford next to me & Lisa Regan's whimsical Garden Deva Sculptures on the wall behind. How about that neon PINK tree? I found that, as well as a pretty PURPLE one at Garden Ridge...already lit & on sale for $29.!

This artist knits & spins..with live demonstrations on her wheel!

Shopping & getting into the spirit!

Angie B. with one of my teeny-tiny embroidered birds-in-acorn hat nest...she attached one to a delicate square-beaded rosary chain for her beloved daughter Blair, for whom her company is named.
Happy & inspired crafting & collaborating!

CD and Ornament Class!

Last week we met in a local sewing/software store to create silk & velvet ornaments from CD Volume 1 (see store). The classroom at B-Sew Inn was light and cheery, with Christmas decorations hung and festive holiday music playing. Our group was a delightful band of sewers/crafters with a wide range of experience and lots of fun stories from all! I loved getting tips from them on beading, bag making, pincushions, and other various topics!

Thank you Ladies! I can't wait 'til the next one! We'll make "Present" or "Gift Box" pillows for home and holiday decorating! -EE
