Exhibit Excitement!!!!!

Well hello today!!!!!
I hope you are having a great day and preparing yourselfs for an amazing weekend....

I didn't mention this before, but back in December during the holiday break, I got a message in Ravelry from the owner of the LYS asking me if I'd want to place my crochet things in exhibit in the store during January-February because they are more focused in knitting and she wanted to show some crochet too!

So of course I said YES!!!!!

And during the first week of the year I took a trip to the LYS with a bag and small suitcase with what I thought were my best and more representative crochet pieces....

It took me some time to take pictures of it, so it's until now that I'm posting to share this though my things have been there for a couple of weeks now...

Do you want to see it??
It's all displayed by one of the windows... you can see my small granny square blanket, my cable and knitted-look hats and cable mittens and a gorgeous wool shawl that I have to confess I didn't make, but it is such a great example of crochet that I took it to the store anyways. 
There is a sign with my name!
My "Tree of life" wall hanging in progress and my granny shrug.
MG's Tunisian blanket and a snowflakes garland.
And here is how it looks all together... the pics aren't great... I'm not sure if it was my camera, the light or what, but you can get the idea...
Here the trees from the outside...
 And here how it looks together from the outside...
They even anounced it on their website! You have to scroll down a bit and probably this will only be available while my things are there, but for now you can see it if you want, it has a much better pic of my trees.

I'm SO happy!!!!

See you soon!
