Pleasant Hill, KY - Shakertown Art Fest

by Cathy Grafton on 07/29/12

I've been stitching like crazy, getting ready to travel to Kentucky for the Shakertown Art Festival.  It is such a lovely setting AND only 10 miles away from my granddaughter and her Mom and Dad.  I'll be visiting with them before the show.

I've started a new bunch of small pieces - I'm calling them 'frugalities' because they are made with scraps and bits I've been saving from my larger pieces.  Each one has a small flower, spray or design - I think I may do some with words on them also, but haven't tried those.  I also have two new sheep landscapes which I am excited about.  Each one has a black sheep and a white sheep and a free form tree, all are surrounded by flowers and quilted.  I hope people enjoy them.

Pleasant Hill is a wonderful place to spend a few days, I will be able to stay over one night and look forward to that.  You actually get to stay in the original Shaker buildings and meals are served at the Trustees building - with the lovely twin spiral staircases.  So I look forward to seeing some old friends, meeting new people and spending several days walking among the lovely architecture of the Shakers.  Oh and first and foremost seeing my son and his family.

I saw your beautiful work at Funk's Grove last Sat. We didn't know a festival was going on but had stopped to see the trees. Do you list upcoming festivals on your blog? I would love to see more of your work.
