farewell fair.

commonground2013-21There's really just no place quite like the MOFGA Common Ground Country Fair. Full of food, farm, family, and craft (oh you know, just a few of our favorite things!), we couldn’t think of a more perfect place to usher in fall. This past weekend, we were welcomed to Unity, Maine with two days of beautiful blue skies, which then turned eerily grey and gloomy..... screen-shot-2013-09-25-at-11-55-04-am .....but just in time for happy farewells, burst through bright and serene again. screen-shot-2013-09-25-at-11-54-39-am The perfect ending to an inspiring weekend full of blue ribbon winners, thoughtful educational workshops, loads ...and loads... and loads of delicious local food, dreamy fibers and handicrafts, and lots of good folks to share good times with over a busy three days. We so appreciated seeing familiar friends mixed with new encouraging faces. A sincere thank you to all of you who stopped by with a hello, kind word, helpful suggestion and yes, we were so grateful for all of the new subscribers too (THANK YOU!).  We loved hearing about how you stumbled upon your first issue, how you’re sharing subscriptions as special gifts, how you’ve discovered connections in the pages and found a sense of community, and how much you would like to see us out and about more. And with that, we leave you with a few snapshots from our time together, while we here reflect on your ideas and enthusiastically brainstorm where we'll venture out to next. ~andrea commonground2013-5 knit jar Yarn commonground2013-14 sketch commonground2013-16 commonground2013-17 commonground2013-19
