Last Friday (a week ago), I headed up to Searsport for Fiber College. I had friends who were staying there and I went with friends who were taking classes. I was just playing. But I got put to work in the afternoon, because I was the human model for Gale Zucker’s photography class. The entire day was a great lot of fun.
Fiber College was held at Searsport Shores Ocean Campground. They have really beautiful grounds, right on the ocean, and lovely gardens. Here’s the “naughty finger” plant for Diana, who broke her wrist while she was camping here!
I learned a lot in Gale’s photography class, even though I wasn’t behind a camera… I got to play too in the first part of the class, and I was assigned “yellow”. I think I got some good pics, but they’re not loaded up yet.
And I did another “model” thing this summer, for a breast cancer awareness calendar… also not loaded up yet, but I’ll post about that soon.

It is SO soft… so cuddly… I can’t wait to get my hands on it to spin it!
But first I need to finish DH’s birthday sweater (from last January). There is about half an inch of collar left to finish. All the seams are sewn, the rest is done… I’m hoping the collar will be OK, we’ll see.
And buttons… I got some old casein buttons.
Blog post brought to you by my new laptop! The ipad is fun and great for browsing, but it’s way too much of a pita to manage photos on it, and certainly to copy and paste between multiple screens (write a blog post). Also, there was rather a lot of resource competition for the pc. And the laptop has Windows 7 and Office 2010, which are soon coming to us at work, so I figure I’ll have a bit of experience with them here first (justifications, I have them!)…
Here’s hoping that this will help me post more regularly… because, as always, I have a lot to say.
