Today was a grand day for all the medieval folks as the Knights and Ladies were all at the park, having a dandy old time. I love medieval festival, this one in particular is great because The Cloisters Museum is within the park.
August was my most crafty month this year. I wonder if Crafters like Writers suffers from block. My creative gene went on an extensive holiday and only recently returned.
To welcome back this creative butterfly, I decided to make My Ewe Ewe Scarf. This is my first scarf where I added a different color yarn, it was daunting but I got the hang of it, after watching various tutorials.
On the final day of Fairy Tale exhibition in April, I discovered the lower level of the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) museum transformed into a wonderland of inspiring fashion.
The exhibit ran the full gamut of fairy tales. Outside of the recognizable characters, red cloak and witches hat, I found the exhibit refreshing a new way to look at story book fashion, making them realistic and wearable.
On the upper level was the Denim exhibition, so it was great if you had brought the hubby along. I enjoy wearing denim and most of all stretch denim so forgiving.
We took a quick weekend getaway to the Poconos to round out the year.
My grand European eight day tour with Gate 1 tours, on route to the start of the tour I transferred flight at Reykjavik airport in Iceland, and naturally I picked up an Icelandic sweater. Tour started in Amsterdam, then on to Bruges, Brussels, and Paris.
First visit and so going back, two days of fun filled events, went on a canal boat tour, visited a cheese + clog farm and saw an authentic windmill still working. I visited the Anne Frank House it was very real and touching to be walking thru the very rooms where they all hid.
It rain buckets the next day, and not to be deterred I sloshed thru the rain to visit the Van Gogh museum. At it's heart the citizens love to go about by bicycle, it is an every part of life in Amsterdam.
Our guide Arjan took us on a walkabout night tour, tame enough, but we did see a few things to go make us go oohh!
