The Hazel Park Art Fair treated me very well, I had excellent sales, the crowd was well behaved and the music was loud. Of course I was directly in front of the bandstand and fifty feet away.

This time the majority of my sales were fabric creations. I could have had more sale if I had cell phone purses for the larger Galaxy and iPhones. I am going to have to get on that. I may have an indoor show in November. I am waiting to hear. I will make sure I have some larger cell phone purses before that show.

I have been busy serging new ruana, ponchos and shrugs, making necklaces and of course appearing at summer art fairs,

Hazel Park Art FairLathrup Village and Utica are over and Hazel Park to go, I had to skip Oak Park because we will be in Maine to watch our daughter present and defend her masters thesis, so we decided not to try and squeeze that in as well.

So, today was laundry day. Which meant, laundry plus food shopping for my son's lunches, return and pick new library books and audio books, stop for prescriptions and meal prep. The usual stuff. When my son gets home from work he is blowing up about the sparrows nest above the driveway door and the eggs and dead baby birds he keeps finding and how I have to fix it. Mind you I have yet to master levitation to reach the roof peak where the birds are obviously failing to keep their nest, etc. secured. Also, I have no ladder which will reach. Minor details my son overlooks.I am much less worried about it than he. He further informs me that the peaches in the refrigerator are mushy and inedible. I check and they are extremely ripe, but no yet spoiled, so I decide to make peach pie. Not just any peach pie. Sort of a pecan pie, but with peaches. Epic fail! I did not allow for the juiciness of the peaches so the custard never set. Oh well, I'll just have to get more peaches and keep trying. However, in between things I did get several ruana, ponchos and shrugs done and a bunch of stretch rings. Take a look see at the rings and the pie.

So, my wife and I went out to get snaps for the doll dresses she is crocheting for Goodfellow dolls. While she got snaps I picked up a few things and ...

 Voila! I made some rings with Beadalon Elasticity stretch cord.

So, while the plumber was fixing a sink and replacing the washroom sink I put together a few things to keep myself busy...

so it is simple component work. It kept me busy.

After 26 weeks of chemotherapy my wife's cancer is in remission for the last 9 months. To celebrate she went to Lakeland Florida to a Martha Pullen sewing class.  We had a great time. She went to class all day for 3 1/2 days, making a bag and wallet, notecase, jump drive case, glasses case. All were monogramed and really nice. I laid around in the sun, read, found non national chain restaurants to have my meals(hers were included in the class). Now that  I am recharged I am preparing for the first of my summer art fairs. I have been confirmed with Lathrop Village and am waiting on Hazel Park and Utica.
