Things have been really busy in our household the past couple of weeks. I can only imagine it will get more so as the baby’s due date draws near… just 10 weeks left! The weekend before last we went to visit my mom as well as my brother and his family.
One of the things we did was to go to the 82nd Charles County Fair (Sept 15-18, 2005). There were sheep, of course, and some alpacas and other fibery things. Also, my brother’s wife gave me a brief tatting lesson, and I’ll share photos of my first tatting.
