Hello to all of you who haven’t given up on me and my lack of postings over the summer. I was so busy working in the shop that I just didn’t have the time to write anything. But now we’re coming to the end of the season and I wanted to post some pictures of my new little goblins and Fairy Mushrooms. The Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design has a show every year at this time to celebrate the Celtic Colours International Festival which is a music festival held on the island and starts tonight (Oct.9-17). I’m pretty busy because I also play the fiddle and usually perform at some point in the festival (Thursday night in Baddeck!) Anyway, last yearfor the Craft Centre’s show I had a penguin colony with about 80 little penguins. This year the show was called “Myth in the Mist” and the theme was fairies. I tried to make fairies but nothing came out right so I switched to goblins. Flying goblins wrapped in leaves. Sorry about the fuzzy pictures, somehow I can’t even take pictures with my camera on the “pictures for dummies” mode.
Hope you enjoy them! If you want to go see the show it runs October 8-Nov 13 and the whole show is great. I went to the opening last night and as always was impressed! I want Gayle Bird‘s fairy jewellery.
