Festive Friday in Carefree AZ
Mr H and I did go to the art and crafts festival but it really was not much. Onward we moved to the next town of Carefree where we were delighted to watch and listen to the Native Spirit Dancers and the hoop dancing of Brian Hammill.
Brian is of the Ho-chunk Nation and lives here in Arizona. His accomplishments are many and his storytelling wonderful. He has held Hoop Dancing Championships many times.
The trio performed and everyone listened. They were gracious to all who approached them. We continued through the festival and all the booths of lovely art and native jewelery. On our return drive through the town of Cave Creek, we stopped in Rare Earth Gallery...
The atmosphere was so calming and beautiful. The staff very helpful. The gems, well, they were magnificent. Expert lighting and displays made it a wonderful experience. Although many were quite pricey, there were some affordable gems. All in all we had a wonderful day. As Mr H will sometimes say, "we are getting old and need a nap"... as soon as we arrived home, it was just sit and relax. This meant no stitching for the rest of the day. Earlier I had been out to a meeting so very little was done then. Off to work later but I did manage to get a few more xx's on Pink Lady and plan to sit with Red Riding Hood now. Glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed the pictures. Thank you for the kind words and most of all your friendship....have a wonderful day.
