I’d like to thank all of you who stopped by our booth in Sun Prairie on August 16th and 17th.  Your very kind compliments were appreciated.  We hope you enjoyed the Sweet Corn Festival as much as we did.

I’d especially like to acknowledge the people who spoke with me about the possibility of future projects related to fund raising for breast cancer research.  I look forward to working with you on those ideas.

And one more special note of thanks to my fellow crafters, whose thoughtfulness and helpfulness continue to impress me.  Although I don’t know your names, you were there to lend a helping hand and to share some secrets of successful crafting.  It makes the experience so enjoyable to have that kind of unselfish interaction.

Thanks, Moab!

Thanks to everyone in Moab, Utah, who visited my husband and me at the Farmer’s Market on August 2nd.  We had a wonderful time chatting with many of you and sharing a beautiful morning.  Your kind words about our crafts were very appreciated. 

As some of you know, my husband and I divide our time between southeastern Wisconsin, where we have family ties, and Moab, Utah, where our hearts call us.   Both areas have their unique kinds of beauty and culture.  We love the friendliness of the people in both.

We hope to see you at the Farmer’s Market again soon.
