Ralph and I will be there for the fourth year in a row, it is always fun to connect with friends.  We will be in booth #32 (I think it is where we were last year, if not it is a booth or two over).  The Daily Tribune has an article here.  The preview party on Friday from 5PM to 8PM is a $5.00 donation to Camp Casey.  Royal Oak restaurants traditionally have set up tasting stations, musicians perform and there is a silent charity auction of the participating artists wares.  We always enjoy ourselves.

We will have some new bow ties:

I have made a couple of new quilts which of course I have not photographed yet.  And have been busily turning all of the wool sweaters into new scarves and fingerless gloves.

 

Anyone have any ideas what to do with my smaller wool scraps?  I also have a large bin of sweater seams which are usually too bulky to use in the scarves.

 

Upcycling/recycling/repurposing the wool is lots of fun but I have dust everywhere, you know it is bad when the dog comes in to see what is going on and starts sneezing!

Lots of seams left from the sweaters, any idea what to do with them?
