SAFF was awesome!  Made a ton of new fiber friends, hugs'n'kisses with old friends and sold a little fluff.  What more can a gal ask for?  The threat of Sandy scared a few folks off, but all in all, it was fabulous week end.

Another pretty view along 
I always knot SAFF is just a wee bit further down the road when I see this view.

Carved pumpkins at Grove Park overlooking Asheville.  We dined on the patio and had a delicious meal with great friends:)

Southern Indiana FiberArts Festival SIFAF

It has come and gone, one of my favorite fall festivals of the year, Southern Indiana FiberArts Festival in Corydon, IN.  While, definitely not the largest festival I vend at, it is one of those charming festivals where you can talk to and get to know your customers as well as fellow vendors.

The town of Corydon is a charming little bedroom community and has a rich history as Indiana's first state capital.  Every year, I book a room at the Kintner House  which is within walking distance from the fair grounds.  Breakfast is served piping hot from the oven at specific times and all occupants sit at the huge dining room table.  Makes for great conversation where you meet many new people and share snippets of your life.

My booth set up this year for 2012

Dinner at 'The Real Enchilada #2'

On the drive to set up on Thursday.

Beautiful fall colors of Indiana in October

This is my favorite batt from my mad carding sessions during the festival.

Little pot that could....

Little pot that could.... poach an egg that is!  This was one of the fabulous finds from way back in the corner of Granny's kitchen cabinet.  Pretty sure this little pot which barely fits on the small stovetop burner is made of aluminum.  The bits are easily bent out of shape and just as easily bent back.

Take off the lid and insert to add a bit of water in the bottom pan.

Dribble a wee bit of oil into the egg insert and once it warms up, drop in your egg.

It is hard to resist taking a peek, but as you can see here, it starts by steaming the edges of whites and works it's way to the center.

Depending on how well you want your egg cooked, the center can be a warm creamy mess that is readily sopped up with toast or cook it hard.  Probably not the contraption a huge family would get along well with.  That makes it perfect for me in the mornings.  Bill is usually up early and I sleep in a little, so I can enjoy starting my day with a little egg on my face;)

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:)
