fiber festival season

saturday was the rhode island wool & fiber festival...

it's at a historic farm museum called coggeshall farm in bristol. (this is where i learned that people in the 18th century apparently did not eat the top crust off their pies. mmm, crust.) it's a lovely little place, and i took a bunch of photos but mostly with my film camera. i suppose they will turn up on flickr eventually, ha.


i managed to show some restraint this year and just got one thing, this crazy awesome batt by terrabellaspun.

and next weekend.. my favorite, massachusetts sheep & woolcraft fair! i guess i need to get back into knit mode.

sewing month wrap-up

so, this will be less-than-exciting. i mostly did a lot of boring mending, but i did finish up some little projects.. when my sister got married in october, we made a bunting in autumn-y colors to spell out "mr & mrs" as part of her decorations. she bought way more fabric than she actually needed, so i told her i would make her another plain one from the leftover bits. Photobucket so, six months later, done. i also researched doing something like this, to create an actual useful sewing table so that i can get stuff done! once we have more space (soon)... so, for may! back to the random number generator, which tells me it will be... miscellaneous! ha. so, random projects it is. no shortage of those...
