Wool Fest 2018

Standard

I wish I had taken some pictures just to show off all the people and cars. There were so many and the furthest plate we saw just walking up to the gate was Texas. It was amazing as to how crowded it was. My husband sat at the auction and refused to go into the buildings with me. He was able to get me some shuttles for my loom. There are no bobbins of course. So I’ll be on the hunt for those when I’m ready. It was really hard to enjoy looking at yarn because it was just so packed with people. You just got moved on with the crowd. I was able to pick up some alpac finger weght yarn, and a couple of patterns. Next year there as to be a game plan because it was just too crazy.

This being my first blog post I thought I’d share with you a little about where and how we live. We live in upstate NY in a area that just has some of the most beautiful views. The picture above is from my front door looking out at the moutains. This picture was taken in 2017. I thought it would be approperiate because today we had our first snow. ┬áThe area is full of artist, hiking trails, and great shopping. It all depends on what your looking to do.

We are a busy family. We have 2 children one living at home and about to graduate. My husband is about to retire form a 25 year job. We are looking forward to a new adventure together. My job is not that of a stay at home mom. I work from my home as an artist working in polymer clay, quilts, and bags. Along with anything else I think I would like to try. I sell my work at craft show and etsy. My husband has few idea of his own but is just waiting for retirement to try them out.

This is a new website for us . I hope you have a look around and make a few comments. Be kind thou this is still a work in progress.
