Weekend Preparations

I'm in the final stages of prepping for Fiber Festival of New England. No matter how organized I think I am going into a show, no matter how hard I try to have everything ready so that I'm not running around like a crazy woman I always seem to be working up until the final minutes.

Yesterday there was yarn to label.  

I can cross that off my to-do list.

Today the bulk of the work is done, but there are still odds and ends that need to be taken care of.  Most of my time today is taken up by the rest of my life so I'm sure some of these loose ends will have to wait until tomorrow.  I've come to accept that part of this whole enterprise.  Some days this business is like being back in school - there's always homework to do or a paper to write or a final to study for.  There's always work to do.  The one difference from those school days - I no longer pull an all-nighter.  And somehow, miraculously in the end everything is done.

In the midst of all this planning and packing I decided to tackle one more booth sample.  I couldn't resist.

This is Curling, the latest from Anne Hanson.  The yarn is Paula, colorway Storm.  I'm about a quarter of the way done.  With lots of waiting time on my hands today I'm confident I'll have it ready for this weekend.

My color inspiration for this week caused me to pull over, get out of the truck and take a shot.  This was taken a few days ago, and I'm sure the tree is naked now.

Orange-red at its peak.
