Whew. I'm still recovering. The fair was a two-day event this year and packed with the goodies I usually only get to ogle online. There was SuperMaggie, Flying Fish Gallery, Happy Owl Glass, and so many more. Sarah Best (lower left) stopped by to show me a shirt she'd embellished with Sublime Stitching patterns, and Carolyn (or was it Marilyn?) drove all the way from central Iowa to show me a fabulous embroidery she'd made of her and her twin sister after 'being inspired by my portraits'. That made my trip very special. What is perpetually confusing to anyone who visits my booth at the fair is the presence of my dear friend Jen Hazen of VENUS. She helps me out every year and people think she's me, or we're sisters or cousins or 'something'. Nope. Just lookalikes, apparently. Can you tell which Jen is which? (Hint: I'm wearing a hat). Thanks Renegade Craft and everyone who came! See you next year!
