52 Weeks of Felt Paintings - Week 39

This was my first reptile hoop (finished before the turtle last week).  I like this one so much. Somebody else really liked it too, because this one sold last weekend at Cider Days.

I think the next reptile hoop needs to be a T-Rex...yes?  I actually was looking for a T-Rex picture to use for reference a couple weeks ago, and I found that I wasn't satisfied with the quality of photos I was finding.  Then I had a moment....duh, Dani.  Photos of dinosaurs don't exist.  All of the images you're finding are artist renderings.

Geez.

So,  if you find a good reference image of a t-rex, something that you think might make a good needle felted hoop, send it my way, will ya?

Cider Days in Springfield

Last weekend was a unique, annual event here in Springfield, Missouri called Cider Days.  Each year, a cute, historic downtown street is blocked off and filled with art, craft and food vendors. It's so much fun, and this year was my second year there with Good Natured. We had wonderful weather and great crowds! Folks bring out their entire families and even their pets! We saw so many dogs, a few cats in slings, a ball python, a rat, and even a hamster in a bowl--what??

I took a few booth photos, but we forgot to take photos of our crowded booth and how busy we were---uh, because we were so busy!


 

I was able to start a list of people interested in classes or workshops, so if you're local and you want to be on the contact list for that, let me know!

Oh, and I won an award! The jury gave me the Outstanding Local Artist award!! I am so honored to have been chosen out of all the artists and crafters, and I've been on a high ever since! (This giant sign is now hanging on my refrigerator at home, by the way.)



One more photo to share.  There were grasshoppers everywhere.  This one decided to rest on a tulip.  Meh. I don't mind.
