Maker Faire 2013

We volunteered at the TNNA booth again this year--the Faire was very crowded in the middle of the day, as usual, but the rest of the time it was quite pleasant and the weather was perfect, warm and sunny but with a cool breeze.

Amelia Thimble gets a sweater!

More doll obsession--I knitted Amelia a tiny sweater using laceweight yarn leftover from a shawl. The "book" behind her is actually a box that I carry her around in, since her body and hair are a bit fragile. I bought her short brown wig on ebay.

Stumptown Comic Festival

We also went to the Stumptown Comic Festival in Portland, and in the main hall of the convention center, several craft guilds were showing their work. I barely had time to walk around all the exhibits.

McMenamin's in Portland

We just got back from a short weekend trip to Portland and ate at McMenamin's, which is located in an old school and besides great food, there is a hotel and movie theater there! Lots more photos on the website, so go ahead and click on the link.
