Kansas Krafts

Right now, the Kansas State Fair is in full force. While there are a variety of attractions to suit many different tastes, the things that steal my heart are--of course--craft-related! I loved looking at the sweet and fuzzy animals that give us glorious wool, was thrilled when I saw someone actually dying or spinning yarn, and longed for the days when flour came in cloth bags.

I would have loved to get more pictures, but was busy taking it all in. I hope you enjoy what I have!

Fresh-cut wool...

Can you believe this is an actual CAKE?! I wouldn't dare ruin it by eating!

More luscious yarn...

Lovely and intricate quilt

Painting yarn!

A sculpture...made from butter.
