This is what these two did whilst I visited the fair! lol
It was rainy & cool, so we took to looking at the crafts. I saw this beautifully knitted vest that had my attention from the first sighting of it! I tried it on over my denim jacket & it was for me! The lady next to me didn't want to have her picture taken & said 'OK, only one', she is truly an artisan with wool. I was saddened when she told me that was the last item that she was to hand-knit & now used the knitting machine due to developing Parkinson's, it has now stopped her & I feel extra privileged to wear her designs. The vest is a button front with the knitted design done in the front & back. I thanked this lovely woman for the knitted vest & the picture.
Then it was back outside in the cool drizzly weather, only I was cozier now with my wool vest on!
There were trick riders brought in from Calgary. It took the two female riders & their horses & crew, six days of travel to reach Napan NB to perform that day.
We would finish our day with a poached salmon dinner at Mary Beth's & for dessert, eating ice cream & blueberries & that the other two picked, forged out of the cemetery.
Remember the panyhose rug? Look at it now! I washed it in the front-loading washing machine & it came out so vibrant with colour!
Now for some sewing!
I'm working on my first Chevron Quilt.
It will be red & blue chevrons (zigzags) with a white background, photos to follow.
Thank you for stopping by & sorry it took so long to get this posted!
A though for you...
The person who rows the boat doesn't have time to rock it!
Stop by again. ;-)
