What's the most fun you've had without laughing?
Hmm. As this is a family blog, I'll tell you about being at the Wildflower Fiber Retreat and Wildflower Knitting Camps. Indeed, there was much laughing, but that is not the focus of the event; it is about craft and creativity and womanhood and sustainability.
I can't figure out how to capture the photos, but if you go to this site and scroll through, the first few pictures are of a drop spindling class at last year's Fiber Retreat, and Mom and I are in photos 2, 3, and 4. Intently watching the workshop leader...we are wearing turquoise shirts.
Fiber Retreat is in the very early spring, and Knitting Camp in the late summer. Mom and I took niece Mallory to the latter twice. What a joy to introduce her to knitting...she has a great background in basic skills now, and if she decides to move ahead with it, she is ready. (Right now she is a cheerleader, clarinetist in band, basketball player, Beta Club member, UIL contests, showing rabbits...oh, and designing and making clever gifts for her friends like these flower hair pins:)
As I look back, there was really a good bit of laughing: but that wasn't the reason we were there. It was a warm, solid, intensive experience of creativity. And that is a deeply fun thing. Especially with my mom.
