Just one little pumpkin...
But I've already started knitting pumpkins for our annual
This year's Morton Pumpkin Festival
will be our 50th year.
The Anheuser Clydesdales will even be here
to help us celebrate by prancing down Main Street
in all their
I live on Main Street.
I am already excited!
There is much to be done.
Lots and lots of knitting and crocheting.
My friend Mary Anne, my cousin Kathy and I always have a booth together at the Craft Faire.
We work hard all year long to come up with new ideas and keep the classic old ones that we know customers love and will be returning for.
We realized last year that we have out grown just one booth space
so this year we will be filling two spaces for the first time.
Needless to say,
our hooks and needles are flying through the air at lightning speed.
It always seems out of season to me to knit pumpkins and other
Fall and Winter items throughout the Spring and Summer
but in order to be ready I have to work constantly on these
as well as trying to come up with new things
that are appealing for warm weather months.
That's why people see things like pumpkins and fingerless mitts
popping up on my shop in the Summertime :-)
Truth be told,
as long as I'm knitting or crocheting,
I am happy.

and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either."
