I love going to this Festival. I try to go every fall, but as anything, it depends what’s happening in our lives and our weekend. But this time, it worked perfectly, once again.
It was a day to myself. I was able to go see every table, once and twice and three times if I wanted to. No hurry to be done or to go onto something else. Sometimes is good to have a day to oneself. Homeschooling, it is not often I get to do that, nor is it something I crave often, but I took this day to just do that, be by myself and enjoy the sights and a beautiful afternoon.
And I bought something I really didn’t need, but have been wanting for quite some time.
So I bought this yarn bowl. There were 3 stands with them. Two with bowls made of ceramics, and I looked at them all. Touched them, saw the glazes, the twirls and turns. I even looked at the wooden ones…. oh wow… some day I will graduate to a wooden one, because I just love wood and the warmth and the natural feeling of it.
But this bowl, won my heart. I am not sure what I’ll do when I change and be done with my project, because it won’t match anymore. Well? Maybe I’ll have to get another one to match that one! Because, yes, you might wonder, one does need to match the yarn bowl to the project.
I loved all the colors, the textures, the shapes, so much goodness all in one place. I’m ready to dig into my stash of wool and yarn, and continue with my spinning, and start knitting something warm for the cooler days. Oh all the possibilities. A day of inspiration.
