Carleton Artists Market.

Tomorrow marks the first Saturday that Jackie and I will be attending the Carleton Artists Market as vendors. It is pretty exciting I must say. We will be sharing a space and switching off weeks, and well sometimes, like tomorrow we will be together.
Up for grabs will be a variety of handwoven, and felted goods,and some hand sewn bags and purses, when we get it done we will have some hand dyed yarn as well. I am hoping to put together a couple of kits for felted handbags with the lovely rovings I dyed last weekend. I have a few wovens, but not nearly as many as Jackie, I gotta catch up to that girl! She's a machine I tell ya!
I haven't finished the scarves that are currently on the loom, but maybe this evening after I take my first medieval dance lesson I will have some time to weave. My goal for today is to put some last minute finishing touches on some "Done-Buts" and attach some hangtags to the goods.
Here is a little sneak peak at what I am taking for sale, so if you're in the hood stop by. Oh, and if you are heading our way- bring coffee !!!

Ahh Yes it is true. I am taking some lessons in medieval breton folk dancing. Tonight was my first night. It was really hard. The steps were simple, and the music beautiful, but I have to say it was so different from the style of dancing I am used to. I have mastered the jive, the waltz, and a few of the tamer ballroom style dances. But this is really off the radar as far as dancing as we know it goes.
Very slow, very methodical, and very formal. yet not. hard to explain. Many of the medieval dances are a group activity, and this one in particular was meant to be danced in a circle. People daisy chained together moving in unison.
It was very cool, and very hard. I will practice daily, so next week I can kick ass. I kiinda sucked today.
