I wasn't going to buy a shirt this year because I didn't think I liked the design very much. But on this turquoise, with the blended green-to-blue ink...I thought it looked pretty good and I couldn't resist. (You will find that there was quite a bit I couldn't resist, alas.)
This was the traditional first stop...I always spend too much here. I was looking for three skeins of yarn for a Color Affection shawl...I walked away with five skeins. Ouch. But so pretty. Their pictures are coming along soon.
Mr. Pointy Sticks and I got there pretty early. In fact, I was shopping at Creatively Dyed when they announced over the PA that the show was open and we could all proceed to enter the fairgrounds in an orderly fashion. But here's the midway about 10:30 or 11:00. (I didn't have a watch.) The weather could have been worse (could have been better, too, I guess). It was warm in the sun (and in the crowded buildings) but cool enough in the shade. And there was a breeze. It was oppressively humid though. I don't do humidity well.
There was an amazing bead booth right across from Creatively Dyed. I wandered in and took a cursory look...and then started looking closer. There were some gorgeous beads...and yes, I succumbed here, too. Twice, in fact. Or three times, depending on whether you're talking number of visits (2) or number of beads purchased (3).
The little set with the green tag here glows in the dark! So cool.
So what came home with me?
|Yes, it's another sheepie bank. Doesn't everyone need two?|
|Some personal adornment. Those three big beads? They're the ones from the bead booth.|
|That blue one? It (supposedly) glows in the dark!|
|The Fold was almost empty. How could I not buy some Socks that Rock? On Blueberry Hill on the left, and Flash Mobbin' on the right.|
From Creatively Dyed....I got these three skeins to make the Color Affection shawl.
And this one just because I fell in love with it.
And this one because it was called Rachel.
I mean, how could I resist? It only comes once a year!!
