Today that Nor'easter blew through. Wild winds and rain started at noon. I'm sure the fall foliage took quite a beating. I'm hoping it dries up a bit sometime this weekend as I still haven't managed to capture that perfect fall photo.
Now for the Wooly part - Today was the end of the week long Fibre Arts Festival in town. I didn't get to take in any of the classes this year but did manage to take in the Fibre Market at noon. Oooooh so much eye candy with lots of different vendors from quilters to knitters to hookers. And you know how much I love to shop!
I did exercise considerable self control. I bought a skein of hand dyed yarn from a vendor named "Little Frog Pond". I loved her name as I have a "frog" thing. It is a blend of greens. I'm thinking Spring grass. (Sorry no pictures but to be honest I'm too lazy tonight to take and download pics)
Then I met a lovely hooker from a nearby town. She had some beautiful rugs on display. She also was selling these little "bling bags". Little sandwich bags filled with odds and ends like roving, yarns, silk ribbons - all color coordinated. I bought one filled with pinks and rose colors and another with deep blues and purples.
I have started a new Angel rug - but just barely started. I will show a photo soon. I might even "bling" her up a little.
