Time Conspiracy, Festivals, Family & Obsessions

I have never thought of myself as a believer in "Conspiracy Theories" but.........IT'S OCTOBER ALREADY!!

There has to be some conspiracy theory out there that explains how it can possibly be October already.  I mean seriously, where did September go? For that matter, did I sleep through the end of August?

I have a serious time shortage if I can't find a way to turn back the calendar.  I have major festival & travel plans for the last two weeks of October. If I work round the clock until then....maybe......Nope, I can not be ready.

The Parke County Covered Bridge Festival is rapidly approaching.  This year it runs October 14 - 23.  It is headquartered in Rockville, Indiana.  Shops that are in Rockville year-round are gearing up for big business and the myriad of vendors will soon be moving in.  The variety of hand-crafted items and delicious food is just amazing.

While you are in the area, you need to visit Bridgeton, IN to check out The Bridgeton 1878 House and all the fabulous crafts & food in that area.  

October 14th, 2011 is " I Love Yarn Day"  sponsored by the  Craft Yarn Council.  Locally we will be celebrating at The Fiber Closet.  Cheryl is hosting a "Yarn-a-bration" celebration.  There will be spinning, weaving, knitting, crocheting, etc......and refreshments!  While you are visiting the Covered Bridge Festival, be sure to stop by & visit with all your friends at The Fiber Closet.

I have been busy in the studio this week.  These little felted nesting bowls have been my obsession of late.  I have made several sets of them.  What's your current fiber obsession?  Leave a comment and let me know!

Halloween set

Fall colored bowls

A baby set

Wouldn't these be cute holding cotton balls, Q-tips & such?

A Christmas set or two are on the way.  I have just been having the best time making these!

I will miss the last weekend of the Covered Bridge Festival as I have a family wedding to attend.  Much more about that in an upcoming post.

Then we are taking a family trip to California to attend my eldest daughters'  PhD Defense.  So excited for Emily (aka The NeuroKnitter)....and that we will all be there to help her celebrate.

Well that's it for now as suddenly the yarn is calling my name.  Back to work!

Happy Crafting!!!

I look forward to reading your comments.
