Exciting news today! We learned that my watercolor, “Sunflowers II” won the Western Region award. This framed watercolor is 21 x 12″ and available for sale for $450. It will be on exhibit in the NC Watercolor exhibit at Greensboro College in Greensboro October 15 through November 11, 2017.

We enjoyed a beautiful Valle Country Fair this fall! We had a successful apple butter making on Thursday and Friday with LOTS of stirring as the “butter” cooked down over the open fire. And the weather was perfection on Saturday for the great turnout of visitors for the fair.
Martha’s next exhibit and sale will be October 21, 2017 at the annual Valle Country Fair in Valle Crucis, NC. This annual event, sponsored by the Holy Cross Episcopal Church, offers an enjoyable day of food, crafts, mountain music and family fun.
