Before I get started, let me put in this picture...it soothes me...hopefully it will soothe you.
And on a brighter note, I'm now signed up for two craft fairs. The first one is at the Maple Grove Community Center, on October 9 from 9-4. My friend Ellen is doing this with me. She does hand embroidered table linens. I will have my handspun yarn and various knitting I've done. Shawls, hats, scarves, the above lap blanket, another cream ruched afghan, some socks and other delights. I think it will be great fun, if nothing else a day with a good friend surrounded by crafts. Then this morning I signed up for the "Wild Wool Market", it is held at the Susan Hensel gallery in South Minneapolis. I've never been to one before, but how wrong can I be at something called the Wild Wool Market! I'm participating in the November 27 market, from 10-4. And this time it is all about me. I'll have a small space and I'll have my handspun there, possibly some knitted items, but primarily my handspun. After the last week, I'm looking forward to having some wooly goodness surrounding me.
