stuffed…and stuff

our Holiday was lovely…low pressure, cozy dinner with friends. everything was so damn delicious, the company so delightful, that it seemed over much too soon. C took a machete to a 24-pound blue hubbard squash so’s i could make the yummiest pie in the universe. and no, it was not also the largest…we canned the rest of the squash tonight. i hope you all had pleasant, squash-filled holiday…

crunch time has officially hit, and i am up until the wee hours each night spinning and felting. i’m nervous about not having enough, especially since i have one local event before the SFBB. i think i sent more than 30 yarns to Craftland, so my inventory needs some beefing up if I’m going to make a nice presentation. i did get my knucklebuster today, so i’m one step closer to being able to accept virtual money at the shows. thanks to all who offered advice on who to go with for that. 🙂

yeah, so i’m waiting for fluff that is soaking in the sink…here is a treat stolen from
