Off to the Fair

A very quick post today.
 I'm far behind in my work for the fair, as you can see by my work table.

Missing arms, missing tails, no clothing, paws not sewn, more whiskers, etc.,etc. I 'll be working into the wee hours.
I've another unfinished batch packed in a large basket.
I'll end up working in the hotel room,as usual.
Tying up loose ends, and bodies.
But when finished, Hopalong Hollow will be well represented.

From badgers, squirrels, fox, possum, bear, and many rabbits and mice.

Hope to have a lovely presentation with my books, paper-cuttings, prints and cards.

and Hopalong Hollowfolk...(those i finish!)

See you at the Fair!


  1. Good morning Jeri,
    Oh my, so many wonderful fuzzyfoots!!!! Have a great time at the fair... I hope you come home with a wagon full of money from your sales...
    Safe travels my friend,
    Love ya!

  2. I remember working seven days a week getting ready for an out of state show that lasted ten days. It was the last show I ever did. So much work. My hat is off to you girl. Have fun.

  3. Now, that's one fair I would love to attend! Your fuzzy little critters are adorable; know they are excited to have been invited to such an event. "They" will love you (and your work) at the fair!

  4. Have a fantastic fair, Jeri! Your creations are charning--I especially like seeing how you have them displayed in the knots of the tree! ♥

  5. I will most definitely be looking for you at the fair!! I cannot wait to meet your fuzzy folk in person !! Safe travels, Jeri.

  6. Dearest Jeri ~ Bless your heart! Your little critters are so sweet and full of personality. They are a lovely representation of Hopalong. May you have a very good show.

    I don't see how you do all that you do, creating, taking care of home and hearth, and doing shows too.

    Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady

  7. Hope you have a good time and sell a bunch. Don't work too hard.

  8. Critters galore! Their fuzziness looks just perfect for autumn weather. I love where I live and wouldn't change for the world, but I do wish I was close enough to come to the Fair, Jeri. Enjoy!

  9. I love how you've displayed them in the hollow of a tree! And the badgers are might cute considering badgers generally aren't! I love the rabbit, too. I hope you have a successful show. You've certainly earned it.

  10. Bonjour,

    Je suis triste d'être si loin ! Je serais venue volontiers rendre une petite visite à ce joli monde qu'est le vôtre... Je vous souhaite de merveilleuses rencontres.

    Gros bisous ♡

  11. WOW WOW WOW. Jeri, I wish Penny and I could go arm and arm to the fair and see you. What a fun and joyful thing that would be! Heads, tails, paws and torsos...you have A LOT TO DO! But you are magic, and you'll be ready for the show to go on. HUGS and have a blast! Can't wait to hear all about it!

  12. Well Jeri, I'm sure that you will have everything all set to hopalong to the Fair. I'm thinking about all those lucky folks who will be able to attend the Fair and meet you and see all your creations presented beautifully. And...to have the opportunity to offer some of those little beauties new homes, too.

    Best wishes for an enjoyable weekend!


  13. Right before a show is always a flurry of activity. Good luck at the show. I wish I could be there!

  14. So good to be back visiting you, dear Jeri...
    Your creations are extraordinary! Brava!
    Wishing you the greatest success at the fair...it would be amazing to visit you there.
