A visit with Alice

Went to see Alice Watterson's new studio in her former garage... what a terrific transformation. So now she has her studio in the back yard to weave the fabric, as well as the back room studio space and now the new space for power tools...drill, bandsaw and sanders, as well as storage for the many materials. And I was just in time to see her new art ready for a show! Great treat! Here, have a look...

Folk Art Market day

Made it through 3 hours in the hot sun. Had a delicious horchata drink to cool me for a while. Seems more crowded that ever this year! But take a look at the photos to get a feel for the market! This woman from near Biejing sold me a beautiful tie die fabric.

Here's a look at a couple of the booths
