Wild Hare Fiber
Yesterday the temperature reached in the 90's...but, I was not complaining! Gathering up my sister and her girlfriends we headed to Sisters for some "stimulating the economy" shopping and the Fiber Stroll. The influx of tourist for the Gem Show, Quilter's Affair and just plain 'ol enjoying Sisters was amazing! I will have a slide show of our shopping adventure and some of the Fiber Stroll tomorrow. Today, I am going to share with you a real treat...especially if you are a Woolie! The first time I met Cathy was at the Sunriver Quilt Show 2011 where she was selling her packs of hand dyed wool with the help of Woolie Follower, Michelle. This year she has opened a seasonal shop for the month of July in Sisters with a variety of "quilty" stuff but the predominate theme is WOOL!
Although my intention was to just watch my sister and her girlfriends infuse the Sister economy...I succumbed to the call of sooooo much beautiful wool....that led me down a slippery slope of purchasing a pair of flip flops at Sundance Shoes...what can I say...it's my sister's fault. Here is a photo of my wool haul...I got a kit (dang it batman), 2 wool rolls and 2 snowman with all their clothes already cut out!!!...like wool paperdolls! lol I was feeling so overwhelmed that I bought a wool wall-hanging that was already made by Cathy so I wouldn't have another kit to add to my growing pile!
Have fun viewing the slide show and if you see something you like you can come on down to Wild Hare Fiber on Hood in Sisters or check out the Wild Hare Online . Oh and Michelle...clever to have avoided being in any photo!
