#ThrowBackThursday – I found this post in my drafts, not published! Today, a peek into August 23rd 2011! I was under 40, my daughter was not a teenager, and it was almost one year of living here on the farm.
I had a great visit with Thriftygirl. There was quite a bit of crafting going on. Mostly crochet, with a bit of knitting thrown in. I didn’t do much beadwork, but I find that I do that when I’m alone. I don’t do beadwork very often around my partner or my kids. I guess I need to zen and only hear my internal dialogue.
We went Folkfesting the day we brought Thriftygirl and her son home. I ❤ Folkfest! The kids and I have so much fun at all the different pavillions.
We ate supper at the Karpaty Ukrainian Pavillion, nomnom perogies! My daughter and I got a henna tattoo on our left hands.

I didn’t get an Indian jewelry as I got distracted by something else, but there is always next year! I’ll hopefully have more money set aside and get a complete outfit as well.
I’ve been busy creating some earrings from the last of the woodpecker feathers. I found some yellow and black feathers under the willow tree, and have made four pairs of earrings with those today. Perhaps I’ll get a photo posted tomorrow of those ones. They will all be available at the Shellbrook Street Fair this Saturday, then I will be putting them into the shop. Enjoy your sneak peek!
The garden peas are pretty much all done, shelled, and frozen. I have beans, tomatoes, peppers, carrots, potatoes, and some zuccini growing still. I may yet get some cucumbers and pumpkins, but I don’t see them yet. I may have planted them to late. The raspberries are pretty much all done as well. The chokecherries are turning black and I think I’ll be picking them this Sunday or Monday. The kids are starting school on Monday, so harvesting the chokecherries will be a quiet, relaxing adventure.
