Some Progress

I use a great display board, you might have noticed it in the picture from the market, a painted peg board that's framed.  Well I needed a few more of those for OFFF.  So we got the fixin's to make more.  e was a fantastic supervisor!  He likes to oversee major projects like these.  And Betty, there I am with him!  We're getting closer to having e and me in a picture!  Have I told you he has two teeth now?  That's right, two!  He'll be four months old a week from today!
One more coat of paint will finish up the task.  A few things are left on the list for making the booth shine.  I'm planning on putting the booth up at home to give it a run and move things around.  You'll get to see some preview shots here!  I can't wait to show you all the ideas I have!

I was able to get some dyeing done yesterday, I thought I'd work on labor day!  I'm really happy with how the fiber turned out.  It's hard to go back and forth between the fiber and yarn.  Yarn can be treated pretty hard, while the fiber is fragile.  But I don't think anything felted and the fiber is uber fluffy!  
I have to tell you a sad story now.  I was trying to buy a bunch of roving from an etsy seller and somebody else beat me to it!  Grrr.  I know it's not that sad, but it is a little.  

The market went great by the way!  I had lots of visitors, sold some of my favorite things, and great friends checked in!   Things to look forward to next time: more dyeing!, hopefully printed bags, and I'm sure a cute picture of e!
