Whew! It's been a busy week! (Do I say that every week?) I sat down to write a post about some handwork I've been working on and realized it was Thursday already. So, I'll do my random post today and share some other stuff with you tomorrow.
Fall is definitely here. Yesterday it was 43 degrees when I left for work. Sadly, it might be time to put away the sandals and get out the long pants (none of which fit me right now...Argh). :-(
This was the one and only photo I took at Midwest Stitches in Chicago. Sigh. I've been meaning to show it for a while, but I could never figure out where it fit in. I think Really Random Thursday is a good spot for it. I just loved the colors on this table. One of those pink skeins came home with me. I've been needing a new knitting project lately. Maybe I should cast on. Hmmmm.....
But, April, this is for you! LOL!
It's so random. I read a post April, Polkadot Sparrow, had written recently. The title of her post was Squirrel! It was about some awesome pillows she made with squirrel fabric (which I really dug). The next day, I was at work and in someone's office. This was sitting on his bookshelf. It was just so weird to see it after reading April's squirrel post. It was....well.....random!
I took Sweet Pea shopping for some new tennis shoes the other day, because hers were falling apart. She picked out some pretty nice high top athletic shoes. Happily the shoes were "Buy-one-get-one-half-off." She asked if she could get a second pair. I said, "Sure." She was surprised. She picked out a pretty awesome pair of shoes, if you ask me. She actually let me take her photo with them on, full body, and agreed to allow me to show it on the blog. That's how proud of her shoes she is. I know this isn't a very "romantic" backdrop for the photo (a parking lot!), but I gotta take 'em when I can get 'em these days!
The little township near my house, Texas Corners (remember....Best Little Hair House in Texas Corners?), had a little craft show last Sunday in the town pavilion. This is where the Farmer's Market is held on Saturdays. It was a small craft fair, but enjoyable. I took home information on how to be a vendor in the future. Yes, I'm laughing with you on this one. As if! I don't know how I'd have time to sew for it, but that could be sort of fun. It was such a beautiful day the day this was held, but there were not many people there, as you can see. I wonder if it would be worth it. Have you participated in one before? How do you decide whether it will be worth it to you?
Hope you're having a good week. I am. It's just BUSY! Today is my loooong day. Class at 9:30 am and don't finish with classes until 9:00 pm tonight. I'll try to be back tomorrow with that handwork post.
Until next time,
