That was last Friday morning in the wee feeding hours. We got a good 5 inches. Low rider Mandy was not a very happy camper but I have practiced my dog out the door shoving techniques for years with Pogo (and he growls), so she was a piece of snausage to slide out in her little coat. It did sound rather pitiful for a bit though and then she was off playing and sniffing with her BFF's. Just wait until the big snows come....
Friday was also the start of the annual Clayfolk show.
This show is just awesome with potters from everywhere Oregon, mostly southern but some from Eugene and parts out that way. This year was particularly good with some unusual pieces and surprisingly affordable. There is such talent in this area and not just in this medium! I spent too much but found items I loved, each and every one of them.
I often keep my purchases to wall items since they are less likely to get broken.
This is the assortment this year. The Insectology piece was a one of and could possibly be my all time favorite Clayfolk find.

It is by Carole Paquin from Central Point.
The two table top items are a small dogwood bowl to add to my little collection of dogwood items from Faith Rahill Pottery.
Her stuff is so unique and so beautifully glazed.
Speaking of glazes, the green on this beehive water/beverage cooler is so rich in depth and feel.
You can't resist touching it and it works perfectly of course.

I haven't sewn a flipping thing. I've been cutting out new patterns and planning what I want to do next, what fabrics to use etc.
I did get a band started on the Cendrel for the eyeglass leash but still haven't investigated findings for it. This weekend will be time enough.
Gene and I are taking my Mom out for turkey dinner today and over the weekend I'll roast a bird and throw a couple of casseroles full of stuffing together. We'll have the leftovers we actually eat with none of the fuss of a big multi dish meal. Works for me! I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving
full of blessings and joy. We could all use a yummy meal and some kindness.
And that brings me to the song of the day, one that is close to my heart with sweet memories of home in Massachusetts. A James Taylor classic. Enjoy
Parting shot: Stranger Things.
