Sadly, Laura has to go home this week but we are squeezing in as much fun as we can before she leaves.
We spent Saturday in Charlottesville with Mom driving all over the place for the annual Artisan Studio Tour. I love this event because the artist's work is amazing. There's lots of beautiful woodwork and pottery with sculpture, mosaic, jewelry, quilts, glass and every other possible craft. It was very inspiring.
I have so much stuff in my house already that I wasn't inspired to buy anything big but I did get my annual blown glass ornament for my tree. The white on this one glows in the dark. I tested it Saturday night and it has a very nice glow to it!
Yesterday was football day and I was in the mood to start a new project. This is a really easy shawl pattern that fits the From The Heart brief perfectly. They like capelet style because it stay on the shoulders easier and that's good for people in wheelchairs and with walkers. I had just started the second skein of yarn when I took this photo. I think it will take 3 and that's perfect for the amount of yarn that I have. I like the pattern a lot and I can't find it online anywhere to leave you a link. Maybe I'll find it by the time I finish the project.
Today we are off to Farmville to visit a friend of Mom's and walk a section of the High Bridge Trail.
