Black Creek Pioneer Village

Last week I gave my employer my two weeks' notice. Since I am going to a competitor, I got escorted to the door the next day with my two weeks paid. I fully expected that to happen, and was even dissapointed when it didn't happen on the same day. I'll start my new job this coming Monday, and I'm looking forward to a lighter workload, and more free time for myself (and knitting of course).

Since I had the free time, I spent some time with my nieces. I took them to a farmer's market on Thursday, and Black Creek Pioneer Village on Friday. Everybody's favourite house was of course the house with the craft-related presentations: quilting and knitting (the rug is handmade as well but the hooker wasn't there that day). Of course they had their own sheeps, spun and died their own yarn. In order to fix the died yarn and keep the colours bright, the urine of twelve year old boys and younger was prefered. We were relieved that no sample was available for the presentation.
