So I got my swap item done! It's for my Crochet and Amigurumi Ravelry Swap group. The theme was Favorite Movie or TV shows. I'm not going to post exactly what I made due to my swappee might seeing this blog. I bought all her stuff and just need to ship it out. It'll be my first swap ever so I'm pretty excited about it. I have no idea what I'm getting from my partner either. It'll be fabulous.
I was wanting to go to the Yellow Rose Fiber Festival that occured last Friday and Saturday, but the weather in that area was so yucky, I thought it would be better if I just stayed home. I probably saved myself a buttload of money, in hindsight, but I still really love attending festivals.
SPEAKING OF FESTIVALS.
I'm still hoping to attend Dallas Fort Worth Fiber Fest, but the jury is still out whether or not one of my coworkers will cover for me.
I was told that the Stitches Festival is actually coming to Texas! The first one will be this September in Irving, Texas. I've heard this festival is the festival to END ALL FESTIVALS. I'm working that week, but I'm gonna ask off -really- early so I can go!
To top off all the good news, I started my first ever sweater! My local yarn shop, Chandler Cottage, is doing a Better Than Basic Sweater class. The instructor was so helpful. The other students in the class were fabulous. I just had a really good experience. My instructor was the lady who told me about Stitches Texas. She also spins and has a spinning wheel for sale. The yarn shop also has meets ups Tuesday and Thursday were people come to work on projects. I have found my fellow people!!!!!!
So overly life is awesome and crafting is going well.
