One of a Kind

It's that time of year. Beth and I are heading to The One of a Kind show in Toronto after work today. That is never a cheap evening.

We're home now. I'm sorry to say that the show was a bit disappointing. Lots of t-shirts. Not sure what that was about. Lots of pottery but not pottery that I wanted to buy. A few artists that we were looking forward to seeing weren't there. The game man wasn't there - he always has a big booth with cribbage boards and other card/dice games made of wood. The good things about the show. We got to park close and the show was pretty empty. If this was your first time going, I'm sorry. The fall show is nothing like this. Please try it again in November and I think you will understand why I go every year.

What did I buy?
A leather purse from Matteo Mio. I have a few purses from him and they are awesome. I'm still carrying a bag from six or seven years ago. It has been on many trips and I love it. If you go in the fall, stop by his booth. You won't be disappointed in his bags.
Butter tarts. They are very good but they could be the sweetest butter tarts I have ever had. It was hard getting through it.

Now it's time to knit. I haven't done much of that in the last few days. And there is the second half of the Notre Dame/Kentucky basketball game. I can't decide who I want to win because I have both teams in the family pool.



Have you looked at the workshops being offered at the Knitters Frolic? There are still spots available in all but one class. Don't miss out on an opportunity to take a class with these great instructors.

I totally understand how disappointing shows can be that turn out to be commercial merchandise rather than art and hand crafted items. I do like the purchase you made! And, butter tarts? I could try to work through those.... ;)

Happy Sunday from Port Canaveral,
