The only yarn shop downtown in called So Much Yarn. I have a hard time believing that in a city the size of Seattle there's only one yarn shop, but at least its a nice one! I had done some damage last time I was in there and was hoping to pick up a few more colors of one of the yarns that I really enjoy using in Theo Mooreman inlay. They were out of that particular yarn, however they did have some other interesting stuff by the same designer so I went that route (the sparkly ones below).
We flew out of Chicago so that on our way back home we could head over to St.. Charles, IL for the Opening Reception of Handweaver's Guild of America's Small Expressions 2013. My piece, "Uprooted 1" was accepted into this show along with many other amazing pieces. Below I'm standing next to "Uprooted 1". The camera on my phone has been on the fritz, so it was hard to get a decent photo. Maybe one day I'll travel with my nice camera.
I always want to get more beading done while I travel. I'm not sure why, but I'm convinced that between sitting in the airport, on the airplane, driving around and having hotel down time, I should get a few pieces done. I only finished one lariat necklace, but I'm please with that. It's also a note to self to travel with less beads!
