I’m just about recovered from the fantastic time we had at Rhinebeck and now need to get packed for my next trip. I’m not complaining, not one bit! I’m really just relieved that I was able to have several down days between the two…not sure I could have gone straight from one to the next as the fibromyalgia cum compression fracture had my back screaming and my body aching the first part of this week. Before I get out the suitcase (didn’t need one for Rhinebeck since I drove there), I thought I’d throw up a few of my own Rhinebeck photos and some others. Here’s my version of the sheepy photo op.
I had a great time in Jane Woodhouse’s class on natural dyeing. It was helpful to me to walk through the entire process — a quick review of everything needed to get started. Saves me all that book reading, you know. It will be a bit before I put it to use…maybe even the new year as the end of the year seems pretty full already!
The fall colors were stunning…my favorite foliage picture is this one with the contrast of the black and golden yellow in this maple. Our little maple we planted this past spring is decked out in a gorgeous crimson. I’d love to plant one like this right next to it.
The podcaster meetup was great fun…you’re right — we need to come up with our own uniform for such events. I am liking the idea of slacks and twin sets with pearls and penny loafers. What do you think?
Fleece acquisition was so much better with the likes of experts like Deb, you and Erica. I would have done it on my own, but would have been crossing my fingers while faking my way through picking out the ideal fleece!
Heidi and I were walking along when I “squee’ed” — she thought I was reacting to a gorgeous sweater that had just gone by, but I had actually just made a Stephen West sighting. He was, as always, so gracious and sweet and
pasted a smile on his face while grudgingly smiled broadly while posing for a photo with me.
Here are my Flat Feet socks that I finished at the cabins. My project page has a photo that shows the sock blank in the background of one of the socks in progress. This blank was pre-dyed, but I do have another in natural. I expect it will benefit from some of what I learned this last week!
Gotta go finish publishing Episode 4…then on to packing!
