My Garden Thing

Last Weekend of Summer


Since we spent sometime in the sun, walking around a small fiber festival, Cheryl, Shelley and I decided hats were in order.  Purchases were few, but the beautiful black skeins of alpaca from Deb's Sunrise Ranch, called to me, as did the soft, handwoven towel, which will make a lovely polishing cloth for Corrina (my Schacht wheel).

Corrina and I were able to spend time together getting back into the spin of things,  after I gently polished and oiled her.

The better part  of the weekend was spent in the garden.  We brought home a multi-veggie harvest and made multiple batches of Vicki's Roasted Tomato Sauce. The weekend also brought the very first eggs from our community gardens chickens!!  This is the second egg.


This lovely little egg tasted like a real egg should.  All three bites of it.


What a delightful weekend. And, your very first egg!!!!

I love that picture of you guys! I bet it was fun to just walk around and enjoy the fibery sights, I have such great memories of going to that with you.

How fun!!! All of it... fiber fest, friends, harvest, and EGGS!!

(Now I have an urge... looking up Wisconsin Sheep & Wool right now, and it might be do-able!)

I love the photo of you grrls in your hats! What a perfect way to spend the weekend. Fiber festivals are just wonderful places to wander. And the egg? What a thing of beauty!

Look at how cute you three are! :)

It was a very lovely wee egg.

Cute egg. Can you get a photo of the next one with something next to it for size comparison? Or in your hand?

I love your weekends. They always seem better than mine for some reason.

Lovely women with their hats, love that photo!
What a beautiful blue towel! and your first little egg! it's a beauty too!

Don't we look cute? It was lots of fun!

Great pic of the triumverate! :)

You all look like you're having a great weekend indeed!

What a cute little egg. Love that new towel, btw. Sounds like a lovely weekend.

What a great photo of you three!

And now I must go look for my black alpaca. I was planning on mitts. What will YOU make?

Oh, what a fabulous photo!!! Yum, I bet that egg tasted wonderful! Speaking of eggssssss, hahahahahhahahah, got your hilarious card. Check the blog tomorrow. :D

What a sweet group of grrls! Isn't it so cute how the early eggs are miniatures?

I'm trying to get enough tomatoes together to make a batch of that sauce, but I keep eating them. Mmmmm... tomato sandwiches...
Love the photo of the Three Musketeers.

Sounds like a wonderful weekend. I like the cloth you got for Corrina.
