The Festival is Coming

This month is insane. Busy, busy, busy.

I finally finished tying off the rugs I made at Billie Creek Village. I am keeping two and the other three will replace the worn out rugs in the farmhouse there. Then I’ll re-weave the old ones.

Friday is the first day of the Covered Bridge Festival. We have a couple volunteers to hang out in the log cabin this year. It gets a little crowded in that small room so I’ll take a break from weaving and go back to the farmhouse while they are there.

Popcorn and I are busy getting her wool and  nails done for her debut. She will be going with me as part of my sheep-to-shawl demonstration. It will be like Hug-A-Sheep Day for 10 days straight. She’s going to love it. I suspect she’ll be very popular.

If you are in the area stop by and visit.

Christine, Tori and I plan on going to the CBF Friday as well. But I don't know if we'll stop by Billie Creek or not. I'm not driving. Maybe we can stop by next week - if I want to brave the traffic!! You two have a good time if I don't see you!

Love the rugs! Which ones are you keeping?

Christine said...

I'm keeping the large one in front and the one on the far left. It was my first so I figured I'd keep it to look back on someday.

I've learned traffic isn't bad in the mornings. Afternoons? Not so much.

Do you sell your rugs? Are they cotton? If so-price? Sorry for so many questions.

Hi Kelly,

I've sold everything so far but keep checking back. As soon as I get more made I'll list them in my etsy shop.
