Last Craft Tent Weekend
Craft Tent Weekend
Sue and I put up small tents, because the wind is not kind to the big one. Of course, before I got mine secured the wind picked it up and threw it against the truck. Sue's nice young son helped me get it battened down.
Fall Days in the Field
We had a pleasant day but it was COLD! The wind kept blowing and I got my exercise getting up and retrieving hats, scarves and larger items as they tumbled across the fields. We had lots of customers but no one stayed very long. Too chilly for them, I think.
I started spinning this Shetland for a special order shawl, so that I could have something for demonstrating today. It's spinning up very fine in spite of the fact that I'm using a larger whorl. I want a nice soft yarn for this project and this feels wonderful so far. I've had the fleece awhile and I'm not sure where I got it. It's a little messy in places but worth a little trouble to pick out the VM.
Coopworth Shawl and Wendell's Birdhouses
And here is Jane's shawl, visiting my stepfather's birdhouses. Oh, you can't see the shawl? Darn.
Dad's New Dog
This is a dog. The dog is a Basset Hound. Lily is staying with Mommy. All the time. The Basset Hound is sweet but needs some fine-tuning. Hence the crate.
