GGAF & Pensacola - 2011

Now, why don't we back track a little bit to a time before the world changed.....

November 4th-6th was our second showing at the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival.  I love this festival.  Not just because it is in Florida or even my top selling event, but because it is my very last Festival of the year!  And what a better way to end the festival season in Florida with your Floridian knitter friends, the Pensacola Purls who meet on Mondays at the airport Barnes & Noble! Gosh, how I love those gals!  Don't worry, I am definitely planning a return visit if the festival folks let me in again:)

I couldn't keep the art batt bins stocked well enough!

Yarn, yarns and more yarns!

Sock yarns

Bfl Sock


I love when customers bring in finished projects from my fibers.  These are from last years batts and were spun on  a 'Trindle' and then hand knit.  Kudos to Miss Jennifer and awesome fiberista!
Say hello to the needlefelted dolls of Darlene Samuel of Pace Florida.  Is this not the cutest little needle felted guy on the planet or what?  PS..His mane was made from one of my batts!!

Also by Darlene, the cutest little finger puppets ever!  This little guy was done with  my fibers too:)
My little splurge each evening was eating at the 'Fisherman's Corner' which is under the Theodore Baar Bridge in Perdido Key.  It is not a super fancy place, but the fresh caught specials are out of this world!!!  As you can see, after finishing each night, I was lucky to get a little table  where I could knit a little while enjoying one of America's oldest brewed beers, Yuengling. Fabulous combination!!  Wish we had Yuengling in Kentucky!!

Lovely fiber event-glad you got to enjoy it first.

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:)
