You should see my to do list. I will not lie, this weekend’s impromptu visit from the the Budge family put a drag on my show prep. But, I kicked it into high gear this week and actually got most of it done. I am still getting used to how efficient I can be with a dedicated studio. But, I know from experience how the to do list always seems to mushroom the day before leaving town. So what started out a a hand full of little tasks has turned into a full on list from hell full of those nagging details like remember to pick up the shopping bags, go to the bank, mail the water bill and laundry… so. much. laundry.

Tomorrow we are taking the yarn an hour down the road to Greenville, SC for the Indie Craft Parade. I had the honor of being a part of last years maiden voyage of this show. And as a vendor, it is hands down the most organized, vendor-friendly show I had participated in so far. And evidently it is insanely well publicized, too.

Last years lines stretch around the block for the duration of the show. This year the organizers have added a day and turned Friday into a VIP event with tickets for purchase, door prizes, food and beverage.


A little yarn p0rn of some new hand spun I will have with me…
