I went to a fiber festival and what did I take pictures of? Spoons. (Someone was carving spoons and my boy couldn’t wait to show me.) I’m smiling about that, but I did snap a few other pictures over the weekend. The first picture is a gorgeous cowl that a sweet gal named Felicia was wearing when she came by our booth. Jeff made those toggle buttons and I loved the flowing way that they laid on the cowl. (She kindly let me take a picture. I got an adorable one with her smiling too, but wanted to respect her privacy so I didn’t post it.) The pattern, by the way, is Drachenwald by Christin Kimsey.
As with every fiber festival we have a booth at, so much work went into the preparation. It amazes me how we can work so hard for so long to get ready for a show and then it feels like the actual time spent there is over in the quickest flash. The two days we spent at the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival were over before we knew it. But what a fun weekend we had! We camped with friends, shared good food (and great conversations), admired so many handknits and fiber creations, and I brought home some beautiful yarn to boot. Jeff and I are so grateful to each and every person who came by our booth and supported our family business, it means the world to us!
P.S. Yes, that is a little stone button pictured above. Jeff has been making those for awhile now, but I hadn’t shared about them yet, he is still perfecting his technique. We’ve both been having fun making buttons in clay too! More on those later.
