The Artisans and Crafters Gathering

And so it begins!  The holiday shopping season with the Artisans & Crafters Gathering.  I haven't participated in a show since opening a Studio at The Chicken Farm Art Center.  So, it was a different mindset in choosing what to take, planning and setting up the space, and trying to think of everything needed...like bags, change, Square Sign, and on and on.  Needless to say, I had to make several trips back and forth from the Studio to the show site.
Finally....all set after moving things around several times.  My space was 10' wide by 5' deep and fortunately I was next to my spinning group so got to spread out a bit more.  As I look at this picture, I see several things that I will not have to take back to the Studio.  Yay!  It was a good show and worth the time and effort to be there. 
This year's new line of knitted and crocheted items....Cowls and Capes.  Last year I did Shawls and Ponchos, and am in hopes they will go again this year.  I think I'm done with hooks and needles for the season....famous last words...ya know!
Will definitely have to get back to Rag Rugs...both crocheted and loomed.  Especially the loomed as I sold the last one at this show.  Have one on the loom now....time, time, time!!! 

You can see some of the ones I have made on Sue's MadeWith Fabric&Fiber website where I have a LibbyLula Custom Rug Tab.


Hello October

I'm so glad I live in a world where there is October!
The Trees are in their autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry,
Under the October twilight,
The water mirrors a still sky.
