A Wool Gathering

September was a busy month indeed.  Bill had his second and hopefully final surgery.  The timing was actually perfect.  Two weeks after the surgery Bill was almost back to normal, and we felt it was pretty OK for me to to take my wares to 'A Wool Gathering' in Yellow Springs Ohio.

The festival held at Young's Dairy had not only some of the best fiberistas around, but the ice-cream and fried cheese curds as well.  If you are ever in the area, you really should stop by the Dairy to try the cheese curds.   OMG!  They are devilishly delicious and extremely addictive.

A few pictures;)

At the show.  Notice the Cascade banner?  There is a reason for that;)  Soon, LunabudKnits will be moving out of my home and into it's own retail location!

Yellow Tents make it very hard to see colors...

Yesterday I saw a rather large Mantis hanging out on the garbage can.  I ran to get my camera and Bill came out with me to see her.  We tried to pick her up to put her in a bush for a prettier picture....  Well, let's just say she had other ideas and gave me a well deserved pinch on my finger.  She then proceeded to puff up and let us know who was the

Who me!
It wasn't me.

Hey! Look over there ----->

Photo Phone

Whew, I'll have to say it has been pretty darn crazy the past few months. Bill has had two surgeries. The first in August to clear his nasal passage and the second in September to remove a pituitary turmor via his nasal passage. Bill is as good as new now, but we might have to go through the surgery again or localized radiation as the Dr. saw a few bits of tumor they missed following his MRI.

Sorry to say, I kind of just dropped blogging for a little while as it was hard to find the time to gather my thoughts. For quite some time now, I have promised myself to clean out the old photos on my phone. I thought my first post back might just have to be a collection of photos from my cell phone!  They are not the best quality pictures, but it sure i fun knowing I can snap a shot here and there;)

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
