There were some good examples for my pumpkin hooking project at the market on Saturday. It's important to let the essence of the pumpkin seep into your subconsious mind before you attempt to draw the pattern for the one you intend to hook.
I also saw 3 or 4 different varieties of sweet potatoes. I need to buy one of each and bake them up to see what the differences are between them. I do not intend to hook any sweet potatoes. They have already been implanted into my mind. My conscious, cooking, eating, baking, mind that is.
I love ALL the colors at the market in September.
Even marmalade colored, ridiculously friendly, cute, miniature poodles.
This week I got zinnias from Josie and Julia. Plus a dozen eggs. Julia opened up the carton to display the eggs for me and said "do these look all right"? And with the sweep of her hand as she opened the carton, and that turn of phrase, I knew that it would be impossible for me to get my eggs from anyone but her in the future.
I have no idea what Josie and Julia's futures hold for them. Whatever it is, they are sure getting some darn good training for success at the farmers market every Saturday morning.
