I know I’ve been quiet the last few weeks – I haven’t even had time to finish writing up going to West Virginia in August – but here’s why. I was getting everything together to vend for a full weekend at the Florida Fiber-In! Sharon helped me, and a few of our friends (and my mom!) came as well, and I can’t even tell you what a good time I had. It’s such a laid-back little gathering (although not nearly as little as it used to be!) and just so much fun. Sharon and I have been going on and off since 2005 or so and it’s great to see a lot of the same faces. And so many spinning wheels! And so much fiber! I was remarkably reserved and didn’t bring home too much. And I sold enough to make me feel that I should absolutely go again next year, with a wider variety of goods.
Here are my photos from the weekend —

And now, my head is full of thoughts, and things I want to do, and of course I want to do ALL THE THINGS ALL THE TIME, so I seriously need to reign myself in. Again, I had a really, really great time!
