Remember the other day when I said I'd tell you more about this picture...later. Well, it's later....and I'm excited.
I have been helping a friend prepare to open a yarn store. OK - not JUST a yarn store. It's an 'art' store, that has LOTS of GOOD yarn! I will no longer have to drive an hour or longer to buy good yarn (except maybe my favorite cotton-sigh-because she doesn't carry that-yet)
And I made this lamp. OK I didn't actually make the lamp, I wrapped the shade in yarn. This place is in an old three story building downtown, which is being used by our local Art Association. She is renting a section of the loft in that building for her shop. And her shop is just a bit bordering on the tacky side....which makes it a comfy and fun place to hang out.
I helped make these too- I love doing this stuff. I made these all the time when I was a kid, so when I left her place, I went straight to Target to buy some tissue to make some for myself!
And this is the CROCHET QUEEN herself! Yup, this place is gonna be about CROCHET. Have I mentioned I'm excited.
She is also an artist and will have some of her art for sale,
and OPENING DAY IS MONDAY. In three days.
I love these Diva's modeling her hats. She's even going to have a class on painting these heads. And I do believe they will be for sale as well.
So, put on your sensible shoes, and walk up to the loft to see us on Opening day for
fun, food, prizes, etc.
Bring your hooks and stay awhile.
It's called Groovy Girl Art,
it's in the Artworks Gallery. Three floors of art.

For More Information, check out her blog.
WTH - just go check out her blog anyway!
And if you don't crochet, she's going to have classes so you can learn.
In the meantime, just come to opening day and
