Houston…Market and Festival

It is nice to be home from Houston, it is fun to go, but always nicer to come home.  We have been home since Monday and now tomorrow (Monday) we leave for Des Moines, IA, for our last show of the year.  Nick & I are going alone, so hopefully it won’t be too crazy in our booth!  Our booth will mostly be the same as the last one, with a few new things the girls at the shop  finished while we were gone to Houston.

Here is a photo of our booth  …lots of stuff in there.  We basically had a few days to restock and get back out.

Before Market opened Tina was able to get a hair appointment in the big city, to get her new “look”.  She is too busy dyeing wool to go before we left.  Here is her before and after.
