People! I just love them. The Kid N Ewe Wool festival attracts all sorts of them. Yesterday morning a couple cruised the booths before heading out to ride their cutting horses. I loved her used and scuffed boots. I suspect those spurs live on those boots, and she just pulls them on ready to go. His spurs are fancier but well used, and I think he might be just a tinscy bit bow-legged. BUT, the fun thing about them is, he had just built her a walking loom modelled after Rachel Brown's Rio Grande loom, for rug weaving. She learned to weave at Tierra Wools up near Chama, New Mexico. Small world. Now for the Birks. This gal looked great in these totally hip Birks. She shops for them on QVC of all places and has about 20 pair. I got back to the room and put a pair of these in my shopping cart. Dallas just has to deal with me in birks or boots. I love them both. Oh, but I will be sporting painted toes in my Birks. A concession to Dallas grooming. Next post will have my fiber finds but people are my first love.
I'm a sure enough Dallas native who spent a good part of my life in northern New Mexico, where I learned the arts of spinning, weaving, and dyeing. Combining those skills with my long time love, knitting, is what I do best these days.
