Dragon Con

I went to my first Dragon Con this weekend. In case you don't know what that is, well it is a fantasy convention. They have speakers like a panel of the Ghost Hunters and Kevin Sorbo. Those were ok but it was the best people watching I have ever done. Many of the attendees wear costumes of some sorts. Great place to sit back and get ideas of fantasy pieces I now want to make. I wore one of my shawls and every few feet someone would stop me and ask about it. I also had bright yellow contacts in and freaked out a few people. There were women with thongs and body paint as their costumes, this of course delighted my husband. I found an artist who painted a 3"x3" canvas of Larkin without even seeing a picture of him, it is so cool. Oh today is Larkin's birthday, he turns 4 where did my baby dog go?

Any way to keep this at least partly fiber, last week I mixed up some hand dyed Merino and Alpaca and made the most lovely batts I have ever made. They are so soft and the colors is gorgeous, good fall colors. I have it up on Etsy, still trying to decide a good name for it.

Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my DT acceptance! I'm really excited, and have already made my first card for the sketch on 9/18.

As for the fibers, how about Autumn Splendor, or Autumn Sunset, or Autumn Embers?

Blessings, Becky
