Where did the time go!  I have been wanting for so long to get a few posts up about the Southern Indiana Fiberarts Festival and my trip to SAFF!  I figure I can use today as a little catch up time for the poor wittle neglected blog.

I was a vendor at SIFF this year.  The festival takes place around the same time as Rhinebeck, so many of you may not have heard of it before.  It is a small festival and each year, it gets a little better.

One of the big plusses for this festival .. it is almost ENTIRELY in doors!   You can't beat a festival where your booth is out of the rain;)  Also, I simply love the comradery of my fellow vendors at this show.

I am definitely looking forward to next year!  And I must apologize for not getting all the vendor booth photos.  These are the ones who were set up  when I was finished setting up  on Thursday.  Trust me there were many vendors I missed getting photos of.

Next up...... my SAFF trip;)

My booth ;)
One of my customers showing off the shawl she made from the BFL Sock in Apple Pie with Cinnabar edge.

I bought the gray one for my Nephew in Japan.  These lovely bears are made of Soft Hypo-Allergenic Alpaca.

Look at the size of her......  Bunny!

The bunnies were hiding under the tables;)

Mmmm..  I was in smelly heaven here!

One of her yarns graces the cover of a Cat Bordhi book!

Soap Balls- These were perfect for washing your hands.  Next year, I will have to remember to get a few!

Follow the Star Studio had some of the most beautiful handspun art yarn around!

Loved her huge needles and shawl pins!

The gals across the way from us were selling rug hooking kits and this was my favorite;)

These beautiful rugs were sold by local Mennonites

These shawls were simply stunning!

She is very lucky I let her keep her fabulous pumpkins!  They were gorgeous!!


Got one of these last year and love it, but waiting for a special project to use it;)

Cute little pin cushions

Did I ever tell you I was a sucker for yarn bowls?

And brightly colored fiber?

Inspiration abounds!!! Love your rug-what is it made from? Glad you had a good time-it looks like a wonderful way to spend a weekend!

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:)
