Holiday Shoppers at St. Christopher's Marketplace

We met a lot of very nice people and had fun St. Christopher's Fall Market this past weekend. We brought out our newest Christmas plates and ornaments even though we thought it was a little early for Christmas shoppers.... we only have one tray left! 
Pumpkins, cats and suncatchers

Pretty in pink.

Back in town with Halloween glass.

I got home late last night from Nancy's house - we did the Lake Braddock show on Saturday. This weekend we will be at St. Christopher's (9am - 3pm) for their Fall Marketplace. Look for our TG Designs, LLC sign. Hope to see you there.

Take a look at our newest pieces for Halloween.
Fresh from the pumpkin patch. These can be worn as a pendant or a pin......but you cannot make pie out of them!

This is our newest litter of kitties waiting to go into the kiln.

Doghouse Yarns is carrying our jewelry.

Our friend Roseanne opened a lovely yarn shop, Doghouse Yarns, in Culpepper. You receive a warm welcome the moment you step inside. The shop is bright and full of amazing yarns, fibers, needles, hooks and spindles. Take a look at her site - even better get a group of friends and visit her shop.

Seawall Art Show in Portsmouth

We had a great show - we only brought home a dozen plates and 2 suncatchers!

I have to praise and thank everyone who organized and volunteered to put on this show. Everyone was cordial and so helpful - we were so surprised when we were setting up and they brought us breakfast! 

 I only had time to take a few quick shots while we were setting up.

I was too far away to get a good picture - so you cannot see how pretty these plates were.
View from our room as we left to setup for the show.

I did not get a chance to get a picture before I took it to the show on Saturday - so I took a quick snap of it on our table a short time before my friend Alice bought it.

In our studios getting ready for upcoming shows.

Here I am in my studio getting ready for the RCK Market Faire on Saturday and Seawall Art Show the end of the month.
I do all the messy work, sawing and grinding glass in the garage...or Studio B as I like to call it.
Nancy is busy working, too. She has a really nice studio - a bright sunporch that has all of her glass and equipment in one place.

For those of you who know her, yarn is not her only stash!   

Let's take a sneak peak in her kiln.

We will be at The River City Knitters Market Faire this Saturday. It is open to everyone so hope to see you there.

The end of the month we will be in Portsmouth at the Seawall Art Show on August 28th and 29th.

I will updating our show schedule next week.

Nancy's new knee and Bo's progress.

Nancy is doing very well since her complete knee replacement. She is working hard at her physical therapy and has a good range of motion.

Bo has now completed two sessions of treatment and is back home regaining strength. It will take about a month before the doctors can access the effects.

Bo begins treatment for cancer on Tuesday

Many of our friends out there know that recently doctors found a return of cancer cell in Bo my sister Nancy's, husband. I wanted to give you an update and thank you for your continued prayers. Bo will report to the hospital on Tuesday and begin Interleukin-2(IL2) treatment. He will be in the hospital for a week and receive treatment every 8 hrs - home for a week to regain strength and back to the hospital for another week of treatment. The doctor said there is 10% chance of recovery and 30% chance of remission.

We surely are praying for that 10%.

Earrings make great Mothers Day gifts - see them at the Strawbery Street Festival May 8

A favorite of brides is the "Fire in Ice"
collection that you see in the right column. It has a personality that changes
with the color of each garment it is worn with. 

This is the "Sarah Collection" which I created for my friend Sarah. She is a dainty lady who makes an impact on everyone she meets.
Many of our customers asked for clips and here they are!

We did this one together!

Nancy did the torchwork for the center, then I "framed it" in the same turquoise glass, fused it flat and finally slumped it...and after 3 days in the kiln have this pretty plate.

On the left is how it looked going into the kiln and the right is a closeup of the center of the finished plate.
