Hi there!! If you are stopping by via Pinterest or from another link, thanks so much for coming! And, while you're at it, take a look around...there's lots of fun stuff to see!
Well, you know how the saying goes...
There has been little in the way of sewing this past week, but there has been a lot of work!!
I decided that before I move on this month...I must get myself organized!! And, that means a lot of sorting, folding and moving things around. It also, as it turns out, means a little bit of sawing and drilling as well ;) It's a lot of work!
But, this weekend, I put it all aside (at least for the mornings...) and we went on some adventures...
And then, to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival...
And the sheep and wool festival was amazing as well, albeit a bit overwhelming! Aside from the obvious sheep viewing...We also got to see the end results of the sheep to shawl competition, which was awe inspiring! To see, at 10:00am, the beautiful shawls that people were making, or in one case had completed, and to know that all of the wool that they were using had just been on the sheep at 8:00am, amazing!!
So, it was a lovely, exhausting, and fun filled weekend here!
And, then, to top of all of the loveliness of family time this past weekend...I get to start off the week with some more loveliness! It was announced that my recycled paper bird mobile
