This is Mountain Plains Fabrics and surrounding lovliness. I found red velvet for $6.50 a yard and some double pointed knitting needles I needed, among other things. They had buttons by the bucket, too!

The Brushy Mtn. Apple Festival is held annually the first Saturday in October in downtown N. Wilkesboro, NC. Yesterday was the 33rd Festival. I’ve not missed a one even when relatives got married (I went before or after, with my hair sprayed as hard as a brown football helmet! ) Here’s a link: http://www.applefestival.net/

There’re craft vendors, entertainment (bluegrass lovers rejoice,) and lots and lots of food! While I do love a good fried apple pie, the best thing I ate yesterday was a funnel cake smothered in cream cheese frosting and topped with strawberries!

Here’s something else I made for PJ before I knew if he was a girl or a boy. I’m thinking about making these to sell, or at least to give as gifts for winter babies. The outside is fleece, the inside is a shaggy, chenilley minky, and the sash is bridal satin. This one was tee-niny, so I think I’ll have to make them a little bigger.
