~*Affair of the Heart*~


Saturday I had the pleasure of visiting with some great folks while helping out my favorite store here in Oklahoma. "Country Collections by Hart" had a booth at the Oklahoma City Fairgrounds. Twice a year for many years now a group of women that call their business "An Affair of the Heart" puts on a huge show featuring crafts, candles, furniture, antiques and so much more. It's in so many different buildings that I've lost count.



The Country Collections booth features patterns for primitive rug hooking, needle punch, quilting, painting, embroidery, and applique. They also offer wonderful candles, fabric, hand~dyed wools, and so much more.


Sandra and Pati are two of the teachers. They are talented in so many different areas. They teach rug hooking, quilting, and wool applique.


Karoyl teaches quilting, painting, and embroidery. Karen (standing) along with her mom Vonda are the owners of Country Collections. Vonda stayed at the shop on Friday and Saturday and worked at the store.

We had a fun day visiting with folks and showing demo's of rug hooking, needle punch, embroidery, and piecing. It's always fun when you can spend time with friends who enjoy the same love of crafting that you do!

Hope each of you enjoyed your weekend as well.

Happy Trails.....Ginger
