I can't believe just how long it has been since I since I wrote.  Let me catch you up.  The Colonial Day festival at James Creek Galleries was a great success.  I did very well and am now planning on next year.  I met so many terrific people while there, and the James Creek gals outdid themselves in providing both breakfast (Amish donuts, fruit and coffee) and for lunch pulled pork sandwiches and meatball sandwiches and assorted other goodies, and to top the day off, the weather was perfect....couldn't ask for better. 

Our neighbor under the tent was Joy Tipping and her wonderful theorems which were framed in lovely frames with graining that she and her husband make.  I am already thinking about which one I want to purchase next year.........

After the show I spent a few days in Ohio with my sister relaxing....much needed.  It was lovely with more beautiful weather. 

Now I'm ready for a new design but find that my mind is blank.  I would love to do a floral, maybe even a geometric.  Sometimes the ideas flow easily and at other times......not so much.

Do any of you get the wool sampler from Rebecca at The Wool Studio?  My friend got hers a couple of days ago and it appears that due to costs of producing wool The Wool Studio's wool now contains a bit of nylon.  I don't know about you, but I like being able to say my rugs are 100% wool.  I guess it gives us something to think about......

I hope you are all enjoying the summer doing lots of fun things.  Fall is my favorite time of year.  This heat wave is not so much fun....  Hope it cools down just a bit.  It seems like it is either feast or famine.

Will write again soon....

    I think Rebecca said only 3 of the wools had any nylon in them, and she let us know what ones they were. I don't think she was too happy about it, either.
