A Diet Rich in Fiber
|Yarns from Girl with a Sword Productions|
You knew this wasn't going to be about oatmeal, didn't you?
On Saturday ... me with a very empty car headed to Winterset, Iowa for Heartland Fiberpalooza!
I needed a break .... I sooooooo needed a break! I needed peace and quiet and no telephones. No emails, reminding me what I need to be doing. No weedy gardens. No dirty chicken coops. No knitting needles calling my name. I needed a break.
And I needed to see friends that "get that"!
I needed to meet Claire before she leaves on her big adventure into wine making. Claire is the creator of THE "chicken hat". I missed seeing the new nest that goes with it. Maybe a photo will follow. That a hint, Jill.
I needed to see fiber packaged like sticks of cotton candy.
I wanted to see the flowers of spring ... only Saturday they were packaged as sock yarn.
My finger tips craved for the touch of incredibly soft yarn.

I wanted to feel the heartbeat that lives only in locally thrown pottery.

I wanted to learn and be inspired by fabulous women.
And I was!!! I'll show you what I bought tomorrow!
