The National Folk Festival was a blast! They had record breaking crowds of 175K, loads of music, festival food and the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and the Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Program.
I spun about two pounds of single ply “Unserious Rainbow Yarn” whilst at the festival. It’s going to make a Very Unserious Scarf ~
This “tree” is actually poison ivy, apparently, on steriods! Every year it grows just a bit larger and becomes just a bit more menacing.
When leaving Thistle Cove Farm through Thompson Valley, there’s a stretch of road that’s usually beautiful. At this time of year, it’s breathtaking and always I slow down so the image will burn into my memory.
Blessings – autumn and harvest ~ 2.25 inches of RAIN ~ meaningful work ~ prayer ~ God’s bountiful beauty ~ all the Good Folks who made the National Folk Festival 2007 such a GREAT time! ~
