A Glimmer of Light

If I squint real hard I can begin to see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel!

I have been so busy that I haven’t taken time for photos or blogging or
 not much of anything else but weaving and stitching. 

The Toe River Arts Council Holiday Studio Tour is almost here. 
Just 16 more days then the studio will be clean, everything will be tagged, Christmas decorations will be up, goodies will be baked and the open tour sign will be out!

I still have woven dishtowels and rugs to hem. There are a few more snowmen ornaments to finish up and a butterfly to stitch on until Thanksgiving. I am stopping then, so I can enjoy a couple of days for giving Thanks and then decorate the house for Christmas that weekend.  The next week will be spent getting the studio clean and everything displayed for the tour.

This year we have over 100 artists and galleries participating with different mediums – Clay, Book Arts, Fiber, Glass, Jewelry, Metal, Mixed Media, Dimensional, and Wood. Come to the Western North Carolina Mountains for a unique experience and see where artist’s live/work and buy direct from them for your holiday gifts (or even something just for you!). 
This is the premier open studio bi-annual event held each year the first weekend in June and the first weekend of December. 
Here’s the link for all the info and how to pick up a self - guided map to all of the open studios.
