On a lighter Note:Top that one, eh!

Somebody asked how we were going to top the knit knot tree

and my response was we don't have to. The jafagirls will continue to do what they always do, plod on doing their art, AND having fun with art.
On Tuesdays Nancy and I walk for an hour, talk art, eat lunch and then do art. Lately we have started our "Textile Totem" project (in between getting work ready for our doll show, art council stuff, find art fridays, and the upcoming Chamberbpot Gallery exhibit).
We took down the knit knot tree at the end of April and reused many of the pieces for our "textile totems". Each totem has or will have a theme.
Today the weather was just gorgeous, so being outside, petting passing pooches, talking with friends and passerby as we yarn bomb anything that stands still really tops it all!

hiay olga, no ceremony. Nancy and I wanted to take it down the same way we put it up,quietly and without a major production. A few people came by and groaned about it and took a few last pics though.
