Black Sheep Gathering

No, it's not a meeting of disgraced family members. It's a fiber festival here in the Pacific Northwest. I'm off to work a few booths and fondle lots of yarn and fiber. I get to use my spinning wheel for "work"......gotta love that.

Lots of pics from Black Sheep Gathering and WWKIP day to follow soon. If you'll be in Eugene for the fiber festival this weekend, look for me at either the Stitchjones booth with the fabulous Sharon or at the Carolina Homespun booth with the wonderful Morgaine.

Nothing In Particular

Yep, that's right.......haven't posted in over a month and still don't have a particular focus or point to this post.  I'll just wing it. 

Hmmm, what's new.  Let's see.  My children are turning shades of brown with all the playing in the sunshine.  We've been going to the fountains and setting up sprinklers for their amusement. One of their favorite places to go is Jamison Fountain.  They can't get enough of the place. 

Even the walk back to the car was fun......

......and scenic.

All in all a very enjoyable day!

On the knitting front, I've got a couple of secret projects that can't be mentioned for a few months (very cool stuff, I must say).  Also, there are two patterns of my own that I will self publish with in the next few weeks.  Plus, I'm really looking forward to WWKIP Day.  One of my patterns will be included in the goodie bags for our local WWKIP event in Hillsboro.  After that Black Sheep Gathering is on the horizon.  This will be my first year attending and I'm really looking forward it.  Plus, I will work the vendor booth for Carolina Homespun thanks to the wonderful Morgaine.   Lots and lots to keep me busy!
