My show season is over for the year! I'm so glad. It was a good show this weekend and I'm glad I did it, sales were good, but boy, I'm glad it's done!
Setting up went well on Thursday and I took a few pictures Friday morning before the show opened.
At the show I met a lady, friend of a friend, whose last name is the same as my maiden name. There aren't that many Martens people around. At least in this part of the country. Her husband's family settled in Michigan, coming from the "low country" in Europe. Mine settled in Canada, also coming from the "low country" but via the Ukraine for a couple of centuries...so there you have it. Long lost cousins! There's no way to verify it but somewhere way back in the geneology is a connection.
The best part of doing this show is knowing that it's the last one of the season and I can settle back, hibernate in my studio, and play with yarns...and fabric for a few months!
Until next week,
