Hot Coffee and a Warm Kitty

Hot coffee and a kitty to warm my lap. What more could I want on a chilly Sunday morning ?

Yesterday was such a great day. I got up very early and had 3 hours of alone time around the house. That was like a gift all by itself. Then I readied myself and went to my local yarn shop for roving. I finally found a nice big piece of wool bat for my Chief Plenty Coups Indian picture. Now I am one step closer to getting the arrowhead project done. I just need a custom frame. Lucky me my husband said he will make my frames all i have to do is buy him a miter box and a saw. No problem, I'll go to the hardware store today :)

On my way to the Yarn shop I called a friend and we decided to go to Downtown Sacramento to IndieSacramento (Sacramento's largest trunk show & craft bazaar). The show was wonderful, the sellers we great, the church it was held in was beautiful. In the garden beds there were beautiful statues of St Francis.
Most all the vendors have Etsy shops so here is a shout out to the ones I purchased from...

My purchases included a fab cat-alope shirt from Wear Yeti for my teen age daughter, which she loved. I bought myself some lovely earrings that look like tiny Italian tiles from Shrunken Cat Heads. They are so beautiful and Cori Cooks was a pleasure to chat with. I hope to meet her again someday. I also purchased a ceramic pot with a wonderful glaze from someone ... but I cannot find her information.
This wonderful abandoned and rotting old house was next to the church... I wish I could just take it over, there is much beauty in this old beast.
But look at the rot, it seeps from all the corners. If it were mine I'd have my studio in the room at the top. Ahhh to dream...
So As we left the craft show, we saw a park so we decided to take a stroll... turns out it was an outdoor museum and it was free day at all the area museums. Heather and I took full advantage.

Turns out we were at Sutter's Fort. There were folks dressed in period outfits, they shot off a cannon.. which was loud and surprising :)

Here is the spinning and weaving room at the fort.

After we did this we walked about twenty blocks had lunch, explored the Capital Mall gardens. We found a tree of giant oranges and partook. It was delicious.
At the end of the day I returned home to my family and we went to see a movie...
Coraline in 3-d . It was fun and cute.
All in all it was a wonderful day :)
