StarblanketWell, two more weeks until I leave for Artfest...I know. I said I wasn't going to build it up so much...But I can't  help it!

I've been working more on my trades. I don't have anything finished yet...I do have the paper packs together, but I haven't finished the soldered charms. They are taped and ready for solder...I will show once they're done.

I did start working on this star afghan over the weekend. The stars are worked in strips and joined together as you crochet them. I enjoy this process. This could take a while, though...Each star seems like such an accomplishment! And it's two strands of yarn, one being the Red Heart and the other Aunt Lydia's Twinkles Crochet Thread.

Also been working on some journal pages...will show those later when done...

I hope to get stuff done this weekend! The door guy is coming back to finish up our back door in the kitchen (a single glass door with two side vent panels) and install our new front door and security door. When I get back from Artfest, hardwood laminate is going down in what will be my new office and my old office. That's right, I've taken action on getting moved in there! I've been slowly reorganizing it and pitching things I don't need. The Artfest Art Asylum will have a bunch of my craft stuff for Artfest goers to use!

BTW: I finally got Randi Feuerhelm-Watts' Wide Open from Amazon and all I can say is WOW! Totally cool, totally Randi...You need to check it out!
