.. of course I WAS felting while AT the Art At The Center ... figured that most would not have any idea of what my 'art' was all about otherwise. And it was a good thing too .. heard so many comments on the order of ... "you knit and then throw it in the washer and dryer" (um, no washing machine or dryer or knitting involved here) ... "you make these out of felt" (thinking you'd buy sheets of felt and sew them somehow) ... and best of all ... "hey look, she's making something right now" and in they'd come to check it all out! Did several mini lessons and garnered a lot of interest in not only the technique, but in the shop here in town too! Quite a few took my card .. we'll see if they follow through. Got some inquiries as to if I would do 'custom orders' too, and told them .. call me and we'll talk!
Friday after work Dave and I went out to get the tent set up .. it was pretty breezy so we drove home and then drove back a bit later to make sure the tent hadn't flown off somewhere. You could tell those who follow shows like this from place to place .. they had tubes of cement to attach to the tent poles to keep it where it was! We figured that if we drove back again to check on the tent and found it was blowing around we'd just tie it down to that tent next to us!
