I was very excited to attend an overshot weaving workshop at Red Stone Glen fiber art studio in western Pennsylvania – 7+ hours from home.
First my car was declared unsafe to drive by my mechanic and had to be left behind for repair. We high tailed it up to Plattsburgh INTERNATIONAL Airport where I picked up a rental car.
I sorely missed my deer whistles en route while I saw live and not so live deer along the highways. And I missed my EZ Pass. Did you know it costs $15 to drive across PA. No bridges or tunnels, just highway with deer. I don’t appreciate how muc tolls cost when I breeze through in the 65 mph lane.
And I spent 4 hours cautiously driving through this storm.
But I arrived at my cabin on a lake at Gifford Pinchot State Park unscathed. And I never met the prey in my bedroom.
I brought projects from home to work on in the evenings.
I enjoyed mornings on the lake with coffee.
And wove for 2 full days to make this beautiful overshot shawl.
Now I’m visiting my precious new grandson (and his parents) but may need to skedaddle in my rental car without deer whistles or snow tires because 10″ of snow is forecast at home!
These are a few fall shots from home.

Our cute little cabin in the woods.
Bet you can’t spot the deer in our yard. Get out the whistles!
