Looking for something fun, educational, entertaining, and delicious to do in the new year?  Have you ever wanted to step back in time and taste history?  This is your chance.  The Littleton Museum will be hosting Mastering the Art of Frontier Cooking with Miss Beecher early next year.

Enjoy the 1860s farm in a unique way! Prepare a meal using “receipts” from cookbooks published in the 1800s. With assistance from the interpreters, you will churn, roast, bake, and boil a delicious feast. Once the food is prepared, you will dine by lamplight in the cozy cabin.

This is one of my very most favorite events to do at the museum.  If you would like to join us for this truly unique experience, call the Littleton Museum at 303-795-3950 to register for the January 11th, February 8th, or March 8th dinner.

Looks a little bit too much like the view out my window:

I need a hit of color:



Come and Gone

Summer has come and gone and with it another Renaissance Festival season.

CodeMonkey continued his run as the court musician, now with a new and improved doublet.  Also a really snazzy hat made by yours truly.  One of these days I’ll get around to writing a FO Friday post about our hats.

The booth that I work for changed ownership at the end of last season and now belongs to a local potter.  Since I am apparently a strange sort of indentured servant who’s included with the building, I was still there with my yarn.

The rest of the shop was full of absolutely gorgeous handmade pottery.

SweetP was still miraculously able to wear his gowns and overgowns from last year, but over a pair of hose as a shirt and tunic this year.  He was also sporting a brand new made by mommy hat.  He tried his hand as an apprentice spinner . . .

. . . and an apprentice potter . . .

. . . but mostly he liked seeing the sights from the best seat in the house.

And now SweetP and I are off on an adventure to the grandparents’ house for a couple of weeks.  Maybe I’ll write another blog post again sometime in the next three months 🙂

Now Available at a Yarn Store Near You!

That’s assuming you’re somewhere near the Highlands in Denver.  I’m thrilled to announce that Sheared Bliss Fibers yarns are now available at Wild Yarns.

If you are in fact nearby, you really must go check it out.  It’s an adorable little store with a fantastic selection from a wide variety of local fiber artists.

In a rather unusual display of seasonally appropriate weather, we got a lovely dusting of sparkly snow last night.  After opening stockings this morning, we went out and played in it.

Come with me to the Renaissance Faire!

This is what we’re doing with our summer – at least the weekends.
