Thank you to everyone who entered the contest. There were some great names sent in! :)
Isn't she pretty?
Now, all she needs is a name. That is where you come in! From now until Wednesday, I would like for you to post your name suggestions. Out of the ones that I think suit her, I'll pick one and that person will win a prize from the fiber stash. If you're a knitter, I'll send you yarn, if you're a spinner, I'll send you some roving. And if you don't do either of those things, I have other cool stuff that I can send out. :)
Now, I have other things to share with you all.
Today we took a trip out to Old Sturbridge Village. This is an awesome place for people of ANY age to visit. I've been here several times, as has my husband, but my kids haven't. And they loved it (keep in mind that they are 4 and 7, so like I said, it's for people of any age). Our first stop was at the Rural Industries building, where both boys made a tin candleholders. Next we toured the Firearms and Textile building. While the guys checked out the firearms, I headed straight for the textiles. There, I found these:
I guess I was surprised because I have two wheels that are almost identical. I was also able to view 25 samplers from the 'Busy Hands and Useful Hours': Samplers and Embroidered Textiles display which was excellent! This display runs for most of the year, but don't miss it; it is well worth the trip and admission cost.
Next on our tour, we headed to the Salem Towne House where they had some sheep.
And the Salem Towne House
After that we were on to the Bullard Tavern where we had a light lunch. Then we headed over to the Fenno House, where they keep some livestock from the Heritage Breeds Conservancy, a very worthy organization. Here are a couple pictures of the sheep (look at all that lovely wool!) and a cow. Doesn't it's fur look spinnable?
We left OSV, went to Country Curtains, Crabtree and Evelyn, and then to an overpriced antique store nearby (really people, if you want antiques, do not shop at the ones in touristy areas).
We had a great day, and I have other pictures to share, but I'll share them one by one over the next few days.
So, remember to post your choice of name for my Connecticut Chair wheel in the comments section and we'll go from there!
Good luck! :)
Since Sandy wasn't aware of her picture even being entered, I'm sending a prize to her too. :)
Please look for this color way to be previewed at Rhinebeck. I'll be working on getting the colors correct this week.
Autumn has hit New England today. It is overcast, cold and damp. It is the first day I've HAD to wear sweat pants and a sweat shirt to stay warm. I even got out my slippers to keep my feet warm. I've lit a Mandarin Cranberry candle, and might even get the woodstove going this afternoon, if I feel like taking a trip out to the woodpile.
I keep reminding myself that I have 3 weeks until Rhinebeck; Yahoooo! :)
