So this weekend was a busy one, but fun too!
My beau and I traveled up to Albuquerque (only an hour away) for the weekend to attend the New Mexico State Fair where I saw a Sheep-to-Shawl booth that was doing demonstrations. This made me really excited as I just ordered my first drop spindle. I have this brilliant idea that I want to learn to spin my own yarn...and maybe someday have my own sheep! This is an extravagant idea, but who knows, anything is possible! So that got my all excited to start spinning and I had to hold myself back from purchasing some of the beautiful roving they had on hand. We also wandered through the isles of goats and sheep that were on exhibit and, again, had to resist the selling techniques of simply showing a small, adorable, newborn to entice the impulse shopper ;)
Sunday evening (last night) my beau and I (and some friends) went to see the extremely talented and amazing Santana! It was an amazing concert, the band just jammed all night, like it was just another day. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and feel to privileged to have been able to go.
Also, I made a sale! One of my most popular items sold this weekend and I found out about the sale this morning after I was half an hour late to work. So bad things don't always turn worse. My green and purple wrist warmers sold on Saturday and I am sad to see them go, but also pleased that someone will get some wonderful fingerless mitts to keep their hands warm while still letting them be productive.
