HOWEVER, we did have a really nice time! It was a gorgeous day and there were lots of very nice vendors. I got some sock yarn and a kit with roving and a sock pattern so I can spin my own yarn to knit the socks. How fun will that be????? AND, of course, we ate. Burgers. And yummy french fries - a huge pile served in a bowl that looked like a dog dish! (man am I sorry that picture thing didn't work out...). Cider donuts which were yummy. And then ice cream.
In the meantime, fall is starting to show itself:
Although, you wouldn't know it seeing our petunias continuing to grow and bloom:
(The ones in front of the shop don't look like this, that's for sure....)
And our mum has really taken off:
It was very tiny last year. I can't wait until it blooms!
Take a look at Karen's latest Constant Companion creation, made with the new Ella Rae Sand Art:
How gorgeous is that??? She made some modifications to the pattern to make it more of a chic/mod purse, rather than a big tote. Class coming up October 9 & 23, if this is enticing you!
