In getting ready for this retreat I am going to next week I have had to round up all sort of supplies. Its getting down to the wire so I have had to organize it all and see what is left. I made the round of the thrift stores yesterday and found some great stuff. SARK's Succulent Wild Woman for only a $1.00. I found a kids art book on drawing faces and it looks really good.. I think it will help me improve my drawing. I found music books for the Lord of the Rings, not the movie, this thing is older and has some wonderful middle earth script in it. I found a few novels I wanted to read too. Now of course I did not find anything I was looking for but that
is ok too!
I did find a new Bead Store in town, they had only opened on Saturday. They had the wire I needed for the class I needed so I guess I did find something on my list. Now I am down to collage images and such. I have to go through my own stuff and look for appropriate stuff. I need really small things for the jewelry class and bigger things for the painting and fabric classes. I am going to print out some of my grnadmothers letters and use the text as background or for transfers. I think using actual letters rather than some random script will be pretty cool.
Back to some more on the Fiber Festival. Here are some shots of my friends.
This is Debbie knitting, she owns the motor home we stayed in.
Here is Ginger and she is printing out pictures of her sheep for a display in her booth.
