Its going to be a busy weekend


We are heading out to the 42nd annual Country Harvest of Antiques and Crafts Show this weekend. It is in Wakeman, Ohio on the grounds of the Birmingham United Methodist Church. The church is actually located at 15018 South Street, Wakeman, Ohio. (Click here for the google map) Wakeman is just south of the ohio turnpike, and just east of state route 60. Hope you can stop out and visit. Look for circus tents and we are in one of them, amidst other artists and lots of antiques.
Hours are Saturday: 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Sunday: 11:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

So what do we know about this event? Not much, apart from the fact that there are between 150-200 vendors, it is the 42nd annual time they are doing this. Here is what the church writes about it:

Over 150 vendors will be offering antiques such as furniture, china, quilts, linens and crafts such as stained glass, jewelry, wood carvings, and handcrafted seasonal items. There will also be attractions such as a petting farm, wagon rides, a blacksmith, and wool spinning.

Also available both days are bakery items (including pumpkin rolls), Amish meats & cheese, Apple Butter & a Pennsylvania Dutch Lunch.

Walk in the Woods Soap ready to be wrapped and packaged

The house is full of projects in process -Steve has made three batches of soap that are curing, 2 more to be unmolded and cut, and some waiting my patient time to wrap them up.
Pictured above is an experiment with texture and color – Steve made one batch of walk in the woods soap and the color was purple. We cut that batch into leaf shapes and mixed it into thesecond batch of walk in the woods soap colored orange.. almost like walking in the woods… the only sad thing is that not always do you see the leaf shapes. But we think it looks pretty interesting. Smells amazing. Can you tell that this is my favorite?
And i have been working on the last 6 pieces of my supply of silk. The dying is done, and some metallic resist added, signed them, and now have to process them. Waiting eagerly for my big shipment of silk because my finished inventory is low… so I am going to be a busy woman for the next few days.

Here are a few snaps of my silk in process:

inspired by the colors of peacocks - deep violets, greens, fuschia... on habotai silk with silver resist... lucious colors

Steve calls this Banana Split - Crepe De Chene with rich browns, apricot, and yellow floral motif
