Lulu and Fanny

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.

  1. Maria, did you take a photo of the shawl Gretchen made?
    I’m just about done with one I crocheted from the sheep’s wool and I will sent it to you when it’s finished!

    1. Oh Nancy, I didn’t see it. It must have been in one of the barns at the fair I missed. I only realized I missed it when I got home. I’ll see if I can get a photo from Gretchen. I’d love to see yours too!
