I spent my morning making more “I Love My Belly Potholders” and the afternoon working at the Cambridge Co-op.
Tomorrow Jon and I are going to the Fiber Festival on the Washington County Fair Grounds. We’ll visit Carol Conklin who always has a booth there. Also, Gretchen Pinkel (who was our dog Lenore’s breeder) entered a shawl, she knitted from my wool, in a contest at the festival. She sent me a photo of it on facebook, but I want to see it in person.
Ever since getting the Romney’s I’ve gotten more interested in wool. And now that I’m going to be weaving again (Jon bought me a table loom after I told him I was thinking of weaving again) I have an added interest in going to the Fiber Festival.
I’m also thinking about getting my Three Sister’s Garden ready for the winter. It seems like a good way to celebrate the first day of Fall.
The Open House is just a couple of weeks away so my mind is spinning with the detail of that too.
Between now and then, I’ll have my moments of freaking out, wondering if I can get done all I need to and if I have enough space in my studio to hang everyone’s work. Then it will all come together as it always does. And I’ll have a great time hanging the work and a different kind of fun over the weekend itself.
After all these Bedlam Farm Open House’s ( I don’t know how many years it’s been) at least I know what to expect.
