Vintage Roost and Art Progress

The four day event has started! September 16th & 17th, 23rd &24th, 10am to 5pm at the Vintage Roost! Located in picturesque countryside of North Albany, Oregon, 935 NW Scenic Dr., 1/2 mile off Hwy 20, this event is worth the travel. As I have mentioned in a previous post, I have some lovey hand-dyed wool pumpkins and cute sleepy mice for sale. If that doesn’t interest you, you should still come see the shop. Debbi does the most amazing job arranging everything : vintage items, primitive art, hand-made crafts, pumpkins, gourds, fall adornments, and pretty darn tasty cookies that are almost too pretty to eat. I just love stopping and seeing her amazing arrangements of everything. Oh, succulent plants are also available in sweet containers. You have 3.5 days to check it out!

Black Capped Chickadee, Pyrography & Colored Pencil on wood, 11″ x 11″

Black Capped Chickadee is done! Whew! It’s so nice to have something checked off my list.

Ewe 183 Work in Process, graphite on paper, 30″ x 11″

The Cheviot Ewe 183 (I See Ewe! or Here’s Looking at Ewe!)continues. I’m getting closer! There are particular areas that I have just fallen in love with. Certainly by the end of next week I’ll finally sign off on this gal. The paper size is 30″ x 11″. Graphite pencil. I do plan on creating cards and prints of the image.

Quail Head back in process! 100%wool

Quail head back on the workbench! It’s been months since this bird head was started and didn’t progress because I ran out of New Zealand Corriedale wool. Now it’s slowly coming along thanks to a little order with LivingFelt. I’m also starting to figure out how to mount the finished work. It might be similar to the Barn Owl, but with different wood.

So, that’s the progress report for this week. One thing checked off the list and more in process. Still waiting on a card order from a Texas company. They are certainly having issues with high orders and not enough people to process everything. I might need to check into someone more local to do printing for me.

The dogs, cats, and bird are doing great. Dave is heading to Washington state for a quick camping trip with family. I’ll be home with the critters trying to make more ground on the art projects. I might have to create some new items for Vintage Roost’s second weekend. We will see.

Have a wonderful weekend and check back next Friday for more updates! Take Care!
