Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Oh, the beauty of it all!
The Clam Festival is like old home day or something. I grew up in the area, so I get to see many people that I've known for a long time. I have regular customers and I know most of the crafters. Its probably the best show that I do. Not necessarily for the money but because of the atmosphere and the people.
Some of the crafters there are also regulars of mine. One in particular, an amazing and vibrant gal, always seems to fill a big bag of pottery. I'm not into jewelry much but Lisa Bess's jewelry style is right up my alley. I've been collecting her jewelry for a while now. Her stuff is amazing and eclectic.
This year I wanted one of the new wrap necklaces of hers. But I fell in love with 2 necklaces that create the same look as one "wrap" necklace.
And this bracelet is so cool. I almost passed it by. I love antique buttons and leaves which it has both, but still I was going to put it back. Then as I was putting it back, I noticed a scrap of fabric still sewn to one of the buttons. Oh, that was it. I had to have it then.
I also got a few pieces as gifts but you can't see that. I'm not sure who is getting what yet.
I also got these really pretty calendar postcards. I'm thinking they will look nice next to my knitting chair. I might not forget what day it is so often. Like yesterday, I knew it was the 21st but I forgot what day of the week it was (brain fart)
So check out her art (click on the photo) - its really really pretty.
Goose pond - Susan, who is also a fellow knitter/spinner makes these amazing gauges. I saw it months ago and finally I bought one. I haven't been to her site in a while (click on the photo) but I have seen a bunch of her knitting. I think there is a link around there somewhere. She does beautiful work in her knitting/spinning and her metal work. I have several of her ornaments and this year at a Christmas show we do together I think I want to get some spinning ornaments.
M had a good birthday, thank you for all the happy day wishes. She played and played and I actually worked most of the day while she played. Then she got to choose what I made for dinner. Thankfully she isn't like Husbeast, who likes to ask me to cook the impossible.
I also did a bit of spinning and knitting.Not too exciting a day but its what M wanted. Now I need to start cleaning and getting stuff for her party on Saturday. I only hope I can make that cake without eating too much of it.
