Miss Terry loves the fiber arts. Spinning, weaving, crocheting, and knitting. You name it and she does it. So she was really looking forward to the Michigan Fiber Festival in Allegan this weekend. Allegan is about 90 miles from Elkhart Campground, and we got there about 11 a.m. We were only a few steps inside […]

We needed a play day, and we decided yesterday was it. So instead of writing or weaving, or any of the things we have been doing a lot of lately, we spent the day browsing a couple of the antique malls here in Elkhart. This is always an interesting experience for me, because I see […]

We were up at the ungodly hour of 7:30 AM yesterday, to make the drive to Allegan, Michigan, where our printer is located, and where they are holding the Michigan Fiber Festival this weekend.
