Hello Crafty Peeps!

I hope you are making things like Crazy!  ALL THE THINGS! I have my hands in all kinds of things!   took a little break today and headed out to the Midwest Folk and Fiber Festival in Grayslake , IL. I left work at noonish and heading up North.  This was my first fiber festival and I enjoyed myself tremendously.  As soon as I paid my $5 I entered the fairgrounds to be greeted by Princess Athena!

It was hot outside so they moved her inside where it was cooler.  When I go to a festival I just sort of walk through….and scan the venue a few times….then I head for the specifics.  What was I looking to purchase?

A wood Niddy Noddy

Wood wraps per inch tool

Stitch Markers

Books

Dye

Different Wheels  to sit and try

Of course Fiber!
