On Saturday LOML and I went to the Peter's Valley Craft Show at the Sussex County (NJ) Fair Grounds. We wandered around and looked at all the exhibitors. There were some woodworkers showing some work that was just beautiful. LOML looked at all the baubles (my pet name for jewelry) and we managed to get out the door without buying anything. Sorry vendors . . .
Today we went to the Warren County Antiques Fair near Phillipsburg NJ. There was a wood turner named Brad Sears doing demos with whom I stood around and watched/chatted with as he was turning pepper grinding mills.
These 2 brushes with my recently dormant hobby have motivated me to get back into the garage and start making something. I got in over my head on the Morris Chair and it discouraged me. Now that the weather has changed and the garage is bearable again I need to clean out one last obstacle from the garage and I'll be back in the shop.
