Shows for March 2012

This next month I will be set up at a Tractor Show March 18.  The tractor show will be in Sublette Illinois.  There web site is  The way it looks to me there will be things all over town going on.  The starved rock bus will be trasporting people from one place to another.  There is a tractor show, toy show, craft show, doll show and more.  There will be no kiddy tractor pull and No horse pulls.  I already asked for my special people in my life.   Oh another thing the 4H will be serving lunch somewhere.
I will be demonstraiting there with the other crafters.  The hours are  9:AM to 2:PM.       

I will also be set up at Countryside Banquet Hall in Washinton, Illinois.  This is a craft show, antique and vendor fair.  I will not be demontraiting at this one.  The date for this one is March 24, 2012.  The hours are 9:Am- 2:Pm.  There is a raffle to benefit the Relay For Life team:  "Gary's Gang"  Gary Wilson from East Peoria lost his life to Lung Cancer on March 18, 2009.     I think this is there 2nd year.

A little bit of February

I'm focused on RED and Black Warp.  I have been cutting rags in the morning, weaving in between, and sewing at night.  Macy and I have been watching Little House on the Prairie episodes at night.  Here is some of my red and black warped rugs.  I will have allot more to come this month too.

These two rugs were made out of table clothes.  The funny thing is the tan one use to be my tablecloth for craft shows. 

                                       These two were blankets that I recycled into rag rugs.  Let me tell you the blue blanket has seen its fair share of use.  The other one my mother-in-law picked up at a garage sale.

These are all made out of denim. 
The one (top left) is made out of patterned denim
Then the (top right) is has a little red flannel
The bottom one is just dark denim

This poor little guy is only 16" long
but people like this size for there shoes, or pet dishes

This month I have no tractor shows or craft shows.  I will list them the 1st of the month.   I no some are in March, June, July, September and yes October.   We will not be having our big Halloween party this year if you come.  Well I'm telling you now so you don't decide on costumes.  We decided between fainting goats, horses, and shows.  We are very busy and I just want to take a year off too.
