The Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival is on this weekend in Jefferson, too. And Stitches, a big knitters convention is on in Schaumberg, Illinois. I have gone to Stitches many times and it is a gas. Many famous knitters and authors, much yarn that you can only find on line. Didn't make it this year...or last for that matter. Remind me I don't NEED more yarn! And the Sheep and Wool is the place for unusual fleeces and great equipment-plus I'd see lots of friends there. Not going to make it to that either! It's OK-I don't need anything and I'll see friends soon at winter retreats and all.
But all this leads up to my nice surprise this morning. Our dear friend, Michele who is recuperating from a knee replacement, stopped by to return a dish. She was surprised that I was home and not at one or the other of the festivals available! I was so glad I hadn't gone as I would have missed the impromptu visit from Michele. So all things work for the best in this best of all possible worlds-Ha!

I have been making pumpkin and tomato and apple pin cushions from the dyed wool I bought yesterday and will post pictures tomorrow!
Talk to you later,
The more I want to get something done, the less I call it work.
