Craft Fairs and Babies
So, I went to Felt Club a few weeks ago. It seemed more like the movie Fight Club in that I had to almost battle my way through the aisles. My heart rate did climb, but it was because I almost had a panic attack due to the crowd. Don't get me wrong--it was still neat. But I could only manage to stay a few minutes before I just had to leave. I don't do well with crowds. This was the scene.
On the other hand, the next weekend I went to Bazaar Bizarre at the Shrine Auditorium. In conjunction with that craft fair, there was Swap-O-Rama-Rama. I had such a great time looking at what everyone had made. Plus, I picked up quite a few neato things at the Swap. The best thing about the Swap was that they had stations to redesign the clothes you picked up. I got one thing embroidered and two more shirts silkscreened. And seeing what people were doing with their sewing machines made me wish Christmas would hurry up and arrive so that I could get my brand new sewing machine! (More on that in future posts.)
The same weekend as Felt Club, I went to a baby shower for a co-worker who had twin boys. Here's my friend Elaine holding one of the babies. Ah...
And here's another of the party people holding one of the boys. He's wearing a hat I made (one for each of the babies). So adorable.
