Last night my LNS sponsored a trunk show by Funk & Weber Designs. It was a very interesting show! This is a couple that earn their living as winter caretakers in remote locations in Alaska. Last night, they did a slide show presentation with pictures and told their story about what they do out there and how they live. I found it all very fascinating, but you know what? It wouldn’t be me! They were often without running water, without electricity, and without neighbors. You can read about their lifestyle on their website.
Their designs focus on Alaska and wildlife, so yes, I purchased some. I wasn’t too bad though. If you look at their designs page, I bought The Great Outdoor Sampler, Puzzle Pieces, Portraits of the Wild Life, and The Neighborhood. I particularly like the Great Outdoors sampler – Jen walked me through all the letters and what they mean. I’ll have to document it all before I forget it though – who knows when I’ll ever get around to stitching it.
And, as for my stitching, I’ve been working on Tapestry of My Life this week. I don’t think I’ve stitched more than three hours this week, so I don’t have much to show. But, my friend is having a stitch day tomorrow so it’s all about the stitching then!
