Speak to me

This is the first year in many that I haven't done the local art festival in the park. As last year was ending, I said that I was going to give them up...........shows. Rugs are too heavy to drag around, the economy isn't exactly conducive to people spending their hard earned money at craft shows. And basically, I was just plain tired of it. As was my chief helper, my husband.
The weather has been iffy the last few days.

Today was the first day of the 2 day show.
And it rained.

And I am so proud of myself, cause I listened. Yes. When my gut told me that I should opt out, I listened.
So today, while it poured on the unfortunate 199 vendors in the park, I was warm and dry in the studio, and it was bright.
Bright green, turquoise, gold, light green.

I was stress free, it was quiet, everything was just as it should be.

I'm SOOOOO glad you didn't go this year. Must have been a rough day for the vendors that did go. MY MY... look at that rain coming down. We had a quick rainstorm and then it was done, kaput, over.

I shoulda listened to my gut! Drove 90 miles one way - in the rain - set up inside a barn (was supposed to be in the park) Glad about that! But sold only 2 rugs, 2 purses, and 2 flyswatters. Not exactly a money making day....

There is something to be said about "gut feelings" and reaching a point in your life to actually listen to them.

Your rug looks very cheerful and the pictures you took of the storm are just incredible. Hope tomorrow is a little nicer weather for those poor vendors.

I am in love with that warp!

Lovely when we actually listen and get such a strong confirmation that it was the right thing to do. As I get older, I'm gaining confidence in my own judgement and it sounds as though you are too. Just one of the many good things about becoming a "mature" woman.

The picture of the rain flowing off the barn is beautiful, suitable for framing! Beautiful warp!

Such wonderful rain shots. It really was coming down cats and dogs!
Glad you opted out, stayed dry and showed us your amazing warp!
So pretty!

You have very smart guts! LOL! ;-) The picture of the rain that is "buckets" says it all! Excellent photography! The brights on your loom are beautiful!

That looks like a rain I'd like to walk in. Beautiful photo of the barn. And wonderful colours.. bright and cheery. Smart move on your part.

Your rain is unique to us so I shared the pictures with my family. I really do love your variegated warp. I would never have thought of that on my own!

Welcome to my world.
