Getting ready for the fair...

An 'All Around The World' fall patterned table runner

    We are getting ready for our county fair here, it is always exciting.  The boys make paintings and drawings to  take and I make a variety of things that end up in our shop at etsy or as gifts.  I of course enjoy the premiums on the ribbons, as it goes for postage to swap on and at the yahoo groups I am in.   
I have made everything from leather stamped stars for christmas ornaments to fabric topped towels for the kitchen.  One thing that is always enjoyable is the variety of things to make- always a challenge to try new things.

Another place I enjoy is the group Art4Mail in yahoo groups.  They are a super friendly, fun-loving bunch of ladies that come together to chat and swap great fiber art.  So if you get the winter blues, think about trying  your hand at something new.  There are so many great places to see, and if you can't afford a beach vacation or don't have a county fair near you, try a great group to get you inspired.


  1. Fiber art? Never tried that. There are so many different things that people make and trade. To be honest, I'm only starting to learn about a lot of these from SB and blogs. For example: inchies and twinchies are totally a new concept for me. I haven't had a lot of success with Yahoo groups, but I probably haven't found the right ones yet. -Hollychihuahua from SB
