The art show started at work this week and as per tradition, I made a lapel flower for all of the art committee gals to wear.
This year I decided to use a crochet flower pattern put together by Lucy of Attic 24.
The pattern is fantastic to follow and makes the darn cutest flowers!! Plus, you may be able to tell, that I had a lot of fun with all the different colors of yarn!
As they each picked their flowers it was often tough for them to decide what there favorite was. I don't blame them. I wanted to keep them all!
Art show week is a ton of work, but oh so worth it. To see people I work with mingling, smiling, and enjoying each other's work really warms my heart!
Here are a few posts I did about the previous year's work art shows: the scrappy flower pins I made last year, ArtFest 2011, ArtFest 2010.
And I am also giving a confetti quilting demo over a few lunches this week. I hauled my sewing machine in with me and it should be interesting to sew in front of other people; not something I have ever done before. I also have to laugh at the thought of using the sewing machine with pumps on. I may have to kick my shoes off to be able to feel the pedal.
Wish me luck!
