Of Rhinebeck and a Contest!!
This is my 100th post! I shyly started this blog back in April, a little unsure about what I would have to say. It turned out to not be nearly as difficult as I thought it would be, and I have met many kind people who share my obsession. In honor of my 100th post, and as a way of saying thank you for stopping by, I've decided to have a contest. Just make a comment to this post, and I will randomly select a winner. (That is, DD#1 & DD#2 will pull a name out of a hat.) The prize will be some of the yarn I dyed earlier this week to match my Toad Lilies. I'll also throw in a few little goodies, yet to be determined - most likely something I find at Rhinebeck. So don't be shy, just comment, and you could win some YARN!
For those of you who have me on your Rhinebeck Bingo card, here's a photo of what I'll be wearing. You'll most likely find me rolling around in a big pile of yarn. I'll also be at the Meet Up.
Sorry about the bad photo. It was raining, poor light. That's my Swallowtail Shawl which in reality is a deep mossy green, a green mohair cardi, and of course, the requisite Blogger Bingo tote. If you want to see a photo of me, there's one here.
Last year a friend of mine started a drawing group in his studio-barn. It is a lovely space, with wonderful light. We all chip in a little money to pay for the model, and spend the morning drawing. He's a college painting and drawing professor, but this is his time to concentrate on his own work, so there is no instruction. Just watching him work and viewing his art which is all around us in the studio, is inspiration enough. Here's my favorite of the drawings I did today. Again, poor light = crappy photo and the image is too large for my scanner.
Have a wonderful weekend.
