naptown races.

after last night's active show and tell, jaime left me with two skeins of her lovely t-shirt yarn. i love the colours and would imagine that it is either cotton or a cotton/poly blend (you know, t-shirt stuff). what should i make with these?

after a luxurious sleep-in on the steer horn couch, we got ourselves together to go to the farmer's market. what a treat!

jerry and jaime got some herbs for their spring garden, while we limited ourselves to road supplies - some honey for my morning tea, lavender sachets to keep our suitcases and clothes from stinking like old plastic and some tea samples of a new puh-ehr tea i had never tried. yum!

our indy hosts then took us to white river architectural salvage, a sprawling and overwhelming junk shop where you can buy things like mounted moose heads, spoons and mantel pieces. or a new spire for you house, should you need it.

with something weird and awesome around every corner, i took way too many pictures. if you want to see more, check in here.

we got back to our typewriter sleeping quarters with enough time to pack up around the napping cats, for me to get schooled by jerry on the use of button hole attachments for straight stitching sewing machines, and for the two of us to go over some very exciting plans for a custom button bag that he is going to make for me. it feels pretty swanky to get to commission custom work,

we shoved off for ohio...

...and got in just as seth's band was getting off stage at the thristy ear. it was sad that we missed their set but all was not lost; olivera was there to greet us with drinks already poured so we sat back and watched the headliner, grace adele.

what a great welcome to columbus. tomorrow we have a trunk show all day at wholly craft. come on down!

is it lame to suggest making a t-shirt with that yarn?

maybe a little.
