I'm sure you've seen the posts of What's on your line? Quilts on a clothesline....What's on your design wall? a Quilt in progress...and What's on your needles? Knitting in progress. I've even seen What's on your bed? A quilt of course. So this is what was in my pot Thursday night. Truly after hiking around the George R Brown all day I stood at the stove and cooked......this;

Then there were booths where you are not allowed to take pictures. Penny rugs were beautiful as were a few appliqued pictures, framed, with kits to reproduce said picture. I did not see a single braided rug, where use of wool would be great. There were felted animals but not as many as other years. One booth had a huge felting machine; You bought the fleece from them in the colors you wanted then they felted it right there. Really cool. Really big machine and not cheap. I could have bought orange over-dyed wool at festival for $20.00 a yard. I'll keep haunting the local thrift for old skirts.
