Tomorrow we are off to the wonderful rug show in Vermont. So very excited to see all the wonderful rugs that will be on display and to visit the vendors. I hope Gord can take some pictures of the rugs to share.

In the meantime, Fleece Festival is behind us for another year. It was a wonderful show with tons of vendors and over 2500 visitors! Busy busy busy right up to the last minute! Here are a couple of pictures Gord managed to snap before things got crazy.  

I am listing a few new Karla Gerard patterns in my online store – wonderful patterns to work on for spring.



Well, the last few days have CERTAINLY not been fall-like – hot and humid! more like July than mid October. Thank goodness tomorrow things get a tad more normal because PACKING THE CAR IN THIS WEATHER is not going to happen. If the dock were still in the water I would be swimming! 🙂

So tomorrow we leave for Fleece Festival in Woodstock Ontario. This wonderful one day show takes place Saturday from 9 – 5. Yarns, needle felting supplies, spinning and weaving supplies, many rughooking vendors etc. It is a wonderful festival sure to delight all lovers of fibre!

Then, home for a day before we leave for the rug show in Burlington, Vermont where instead of vending I will be buying!

So, a few really exciting days to come. And hopefully I can put away my flip flops and wear my nice fur-lined shoes again.



HAPPY THANKSGIVING…and Stitch by Stitch

Although I did not cook a bird (or much else for that matter) I do count my blessings and am thankful for family, friends, home and HOOKING! and YES I did actually hook something this week – I have a finishing class in 2 weeks and needed a few smaller projects that I could use to demonstrate different finishing techniques so once they are allllll finished I will post a few pictures.

In the meantime, Marjorie sent me a picture of her completed sunflowers from our Fibrefest workshop. I think people went crazy doing sunflowers – they are such fun and so simple and so pretty – each one different from the other.

Tomorrow I will be at Stitch by Stitch in Kingston from 10 – 12.  Hope to see some of you there…
