2015 was the best Showcase opening ever!
I was thrilled to see more than two dozen friends from Mizzou, my church and my Toastmasters club at the grand opening. I also appreciated the kind notes of support and prayers from those who couldn’t make it. I felt you there in spirit.
I’m thankful for all of you! It was a day of joy celebrating the retro 1970s crochet glory that is my hobby!
The Showcase will continue until Thursday, 3 p.m., in Stotler Lounge in Memorial Union. We have seven new artists displaying for the first time this year. It’s definitely worth the walk to Memorial Union—you’ll see many fascinating types of art: costumes, leather work, paper, hooked rugs and baskets.
I made a little something for our Chancellor, who is famous for his bow ties.
Guess what @bowtieger…@HowGen crocheted a bow tie for you! Becky Is showing it off at the Showcase! pic.twitter.com/XAxfKGMSsp

Photos from the show
My thanks to Natalie Meighan and Michelle Hall for the photos.
Bonus: Campus Authors reception
The schmoozing continued at the Campus Authors reception I attended in the afternoon, complete with amazing food (note the tiny tasty tartlettes in my paw) and classical music in the rotunda. They told me my book sold out.
I love how this photo (courtesy of Laura Foley) makes me look like a rock star with my shades on. Do you think it’s because my Transitions lenses are slow to change back…or it is because the future is so bright…
I appreciate these good times and look forward to more. God bless you today and all days!
