We're back.....this post is a bit late but I came home to orders from The Primitive Gathering that needed to be made and shipped.
It was a beautiful and busy weekend. It was great to see old friends and make some new ones. Sarah posted great pictures on her blog...the Paisley Studio and on out other blog...Hallowed Hill Primitives. You can find the links at the right.
Speaking of old friends....a funny story from our first year at Rhinebeck, I sold a turkey similar to the one above to a very nice woman. When I got home a few days later there was a message on my answering machine from her......could I send a new set of wings for her turkey??? Seems her dog got ahold of it and chewed the original wings off. She stops by every year to add a new piece to her collection and this year asked if I had another turkey.I hadn't made any in a while but I told her I would make her one and ship it. While I had the pattern out I decided to make two, so I listed one for sale in my Etsy shop.
Well, it's on to Christmas.....one more show to go. Also, an update on The Primitive gathering on November 15th and our last webshow with The Eclectic Artisans on November 24th.
