The Mammoth Cave Retreat was wonderful and the "inchies" swap was a huge success. I covered a wooden frame with polymer clay and put one of everyone's inchies on the frame. Ron Lehocky made hearts for the four corners which made it look great.
Then we had a drawing to give the frame to one lucky attendee. There was only one frame but everyone got a great set of inchies to take home.
In the evenings, we played Left, Right, Center which is always a hoot. We played for big beads the first night.
And we played for poker chips the second night.
Here are a couple of shots of my work table. I used the scraps from my Mitered Crosses inchies to make a kaleidoscope cane for a big button to go on a hat that I knitted.
These two little sculptures were made by Leslie Blackford by special request.
Leslie gave my children two kittens a few years back and my daughter's cat is black so the cat is for her. My son requested a dragon so he gets the dragon. They both play soccer so they have little soccer balls too. I just love Leslie's work and Leslie is one of my favorite people in the world.
I traded the Shizuku scarf with Leslie. She loves my knitting and I love her polymer clay!
And here is the great polymer clay button that I made. The hat pattern is Robin's Egg Blue Hat and I knitted it in some super soft Alpaca that I bought from a local alpaca farm. My niece is wearing one of the two mystery knit a long hats that I knitted recently.
The pattern is Corella and it is also alpaca.Rubbish Mojitos.
