Mattie Lou and The Hat

 I went to the Riverside Arts Market which is a wonderful arts market every Saturday right here in our neighborhood. There are all sorts of art and great food--I had a French Quarter Beignet and all I can say is---YUM!!!  Nothing beats fried dough with powdered sugar! Actually I have thought of setting up shop there but I chickened out. There is now a long waiting list. The early bird gets the worm. Anyway, I bought this darling hat from Kathryn Page,
who is a fiber artist with the most wonderful things. Everything is made of French lace and silk and cut in strips and I was ouuu--ing and ahhh--ing just over the strips.  Her dad said he would save me their scraps---woo hoo.  I can just see these in books and ---mixed media stuff!!!  I don't know where I will ever wear this hat but I don't care---I just had to have it and I will wear it at the Red Door when I feel like being Mattie Lou (my muse inner artist self--- and grandmother name sake.)

ALSO---Hey and check this out--Julie Bagamary took a pic of her canvas bag while we were at Random ARts.
And ALSO check out Terry Stegmiller
She has a wonderful practice sheet she has done and I am so proud of her success!!  She has some interesting classes also---painting faces on fabric--hmmmm-sounds like something I might like to do!!!

ALso--Look at Sherry
She has a wonderful example of what she has done in the class and look at the fun flowers!! I am so proud of everyone!!!

ALSO--look at Ingela!  Incredible!!  I am just busting with pride for my students!!
