Dear Readers: In my haste to get ready, load up the van and get to breakfast on time yesterday, it never once entered my head to get the camera! I’m just not in the habit of carrying it with me to meals…yet! I am going to have to get advice from Gerrie since she always has lovely pictures of food and meals, even when they eat out.
But I can describe it for you…we had a fruit dish of bananas and strawberries, small stack of pancakes, sausage patties, hard fried eggs with a soft white cheese melted on top (never had that before!), juice and coffee. Yes, it was another wonderful breakfast. If anyone questions my infatuation with my breakfasts the past few days…let me explain. My husband goes to work early and we don’t fix breakfast. Every morning I have a bowl of bran flakes with soy milk and dried cranberries on top…that is it. Being at the bed and breakfast this week was quite a treat as far as breakfast was concerned! And someone else was fixing it…and it was way better than the continental breakfasts you get at a motel for the same price.
Anyway, I sold a few more scarves yesterday…that was very encouraging. Right before I left, I worked on some large square chiffon scarves and was quite pleased with how they turned out. Every day I draped a new one over my “dummy” to see public reaction. The third one sold, and it was one I ran out of time on and planned on doing more to it when I got back. The sale saved me more work!
I still have these two…the one that sold was a bit more reddish than the orange one above. I discharged it the same way, but didn’t like the color so I overdyed it. The discharged areas were more muted. I also used the same screen print on it that the orange one has. It is a Thermofax print of a picture of tree branches.
I’m back home now and need to re-stock my inventory…next art show is in two weeks.
