I just realized that it has been almost a month since I last wrote! Those days sure went by in a blur – I know I was busy, but I’m not sure I could tell you much of what I did.
Except – the week spent in Duck, NC! A dozen basket friends from around the country converged on Duck (Outer Banks north of Kitty Hawk) to spend some time together. We don’t often get to see each other and usually when when we do, it is during a conference or some other teaching time and the ‘friend time’ is limited. A glorious week full of ocean and sand and beach combing and wine and laughing-till-our-sides-hurt and knitting and sunsets and hot tubs and …
The knitting I did during that week was a couple pairs of ****** ******* to be Christmas gifts. I’ll divulge all later. Have to say, I’m quite pleased with how they are turning out.
This weekend I am basking in the warmth and humidity of Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati as I peddle my wares during their Kris Kringle Mart in conjunction with the opening of their holiday plant exhibit. The exhibit is gorgeous, as always.
Filling the time today* I made up a bunch of tension trays – nothing difficult while crowds are around. Tea staining them at the moment to take the ‘newness edge’ off them. I think they will work well as holders for the soaps my new daughter-in-law is making.
*(This post was actually written the evening of 11/17 – I thought I posted it then, but obviously did not!)
