Sensational Saturday.

A day in the big city is always exciting for this small town knitter. But a day in the the big city when Peter is having a show is really fun.

First up, is my mandatory picture. Other families probably have their name in big letters and bright lights ad nauseum, but Peter is our only claim to fame. Whenever he has a show, I can't go into the gallery without stopping to snap this photo.

This second shot might appear that I'm taking credit but believe me, absolutely none is due. It's just the proud Mama shot.

Inside the gallery, the art seemed to be much appreciated. This photo captures fellow blogger, Marie and her thoughtfully posed hubby, along with 'Sis', BIL and a couple of nieces.

When Peter has a show, my entire family shows up. Are they interested in buying art? Not always. But for sure, they're interested in the fun that follows. After the show there was music. Which in my family never happens without dancing.
Twenty year old niece Katie and her Mom.

And of course, Dad.

Three generations on the dance floor.

Remember Katie's request for a red hat? Saturday the hat was delivered,worn all day and by the look of it, loved.

Of course, car time always means knitting time. My Pumpkin Pie pully is almost at the underarms.

A great show, great fun and lots of knitting. A sensational day.

Looks like a great time. That red hat is wonderful!

Peter's work really has to be seen in person to be believed...he has taken the "Landscape" painting and made it current and urban without losing any pastoral peacefulness!

I only wish we had been there earlier (like a week earlier!) 20 minutes after opening our favourites had already been sold!

Nonetheless we're so glad we were able to go! (We even got to meet Fred!)

Wish I had remembered that Peter was showing - I may have made it down to look. Congrats on a successful (and fun) time!
