BE THANKFUL that you don't already have everything you desire,

If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

BE THANKFUL when you don't know something,

For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

BE THANKFUL for the difficult times,

During those times you grow.

BE THANKFUL for your limitations,

Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

BE THANKFUL for each new challenge,

Because it will build strength and character.

BE THANKFUL for your mistakes,

They will teach you valuable lessons.

BE THANKFUL when you are tired and weary,

Because it means you've made a difference.

It is easy to be grateful for all good things,

A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.

Find a way to be thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings.

Fleece Festival October 2010

Here I am at the far left with a few of the ladies that belong to the Rug Hooking Group I belong to. I should have taken more pictures of our booth. We had a lot of our rugs on display, and we had 2 classes going for those that wanted to learn Traditional Rug Hooking.

Look at these darlings!

These little guys are raised for their wool and provide us with fleece and the makings for beautiful yarns, I bought a big bag of the fleece as well as some of the rovings, which I use in my work.

Aren't the rovings beautiful ! I think I have enough to make a few pictures!!! hahahah
I already have a stash of rovings , but I got this huge bag for $5.00.... How could I resist?!?!
This Festival is held in October and this was it's second year. It has proved to be such a success it will be held for 2 days in October 2011.This event has been very successful with dozens of vendors , lots of workshops are avaiable, and the attendance has been over the top.
I am especially excited about next year as the Fibre Arts Group I belong to has been invited to have a booth next year and show and sell our work ....already my head is full of ideas.
Maybe next time I will see you

I'm Still Here

Hi everyone.

I am still here and going strong.

I had a very successful time at the Craigowan Artist Show and Sale last week-end.

I am at another sale this week-end called "Deck The Halls" at the Creative Art Centre in Ingersoll, Ontario.

I have been so busy getting things done to sell I have not had time to blog.

It was very worthwhile as I sold a lot last week-end. Hope this week-end will be good too.

I shall Post more with pictures on Monday..

Thanks to all my faithful followers...
