This is what I'm working on this weeke and next! If you are in the East Windsor or surrounding areas next weekend, come visit!

Facebook Gardens Gallery and Gifts 2010: "Gardens, Gallery and Gifts is a two day event showcasing Connecticut artists and artisans.

Stroll through beautiful perennial gardens with lushly planted containers to enjoy along paths and entry ways. Enter a cozy art gallery housing oil paintings of flowers, landscapes and vintage vehicles. Stop in to view amazing floral arrangements staged in a contemporary home decorated in rich colors by a home designer. Shop in a rustic barn showcasing artisans’ specialties from painted glass wares, gift baskets, hand-woven wares, stunning jewelry, floral photography, unique one of a kind handbags, painted primitives, pottery and more. Top it all off with a glass of wine during a wine tasting feature held on the outdoor patio.

This two day event will be held on June 5th and 6th from 10 – 3 at 310 & 312 Rye St. in the Broad Brook section of East Windsor, CT, 06016. Please follow the signs for parking. There will be an area for handicapped parking.

New at Coffee Break Designs

A couple of new handwoven kitchen towels in the store. I have a few more housewares to add.

And now I will begin my next project. I'm thinking shawls. Any thoughts?

May is Hemp Month

Ok, I have no idea whether it is or not. But I did make some of these for the upcoming Garden Gallery & Gifts show, June 5 & 6, in Broad Brook, CT.

All made of hemp and cotton.
This red one is at Swift Waters.
I also made some guitar string pendants. They are just sitting in my studio, waiting for me to put them on chains and put them in the store.

This one, however, did make it over to Swift Waters. I like the ball ends.
So, I actually have been busy lately with weaving, planting the garden, and playing my guitar. I've learned "Sweet Lorraine" by Patty Griffin, of course, sounding nothing like her and still working on better strumming. But I'm loving it!
