A brilliant sunshiny day for the Fall Homecoming at the famous Museum of Appalachia! I have a wonderful booth facing the main lawn. Thursday had been youth day and the young people bought key chains, hand-sanitizer holders, necklaces, and American Girl doll clothing. They had a grand day! The wall of my booth was adorned with beach cover-ups for the younger princess.
The ribbon yarn necklaces have proven very popular, as have the soft crocheted rope necklaces with their lovely drape.
Though the weather today was stunning and hot, think about the coming of winter and consider a crocheted warmer for your delicate ears – every color!

You have two more days of sunshine to visit the Museum of Appalachia for this crowd-pleasing autumn festival. Stop by my booth and say hello!
