Well, not my best photo, but at least I'm having fun. We're at a class at the big Stitches West event in Santa Clara. I am on the right Julia on the left. Julia asked me before we left if she made shirts with her new store name (Fig Tree Alley Fiber Arts) on it would I wear it. Of course~!
We made a weekend of it rather than just a day like last year. Last year was fun don't get me wrong. We took the "Stitches" train from Sacramento with 500 other knitters. It was so much fun. This year no train available. Boy, did us fiber artists complain. I think the train will resume next year. We debated about whether or not to go Julia and me. Then we decided to get a hotel, stay the night, take a class, and really enjoy the market place without out worrying about being too tired or having to catch a train home. Julia brought a bottle of wine to enjoy back at the hotel. I discovered a new wine I like Smoking Loon's Cabernet.
