getting serious about October

We had a great time on our quick trip to Portland for family weekend at MECA. Friday was a perfect fall day. We drove up the coast and did some beach watching and walking.



They have great rocks in Maine.

We stopped in Wells at Camp Wool. Thank you to the kind person who clued me in about this place via my comments. Unfortunately, no website yet.


There was lots of beautiful wool, although I am glad I had been to Dorr first. There was lots of beautiful colors and textures here, but not the basic skin colors that I went up to Dorr Mill Store for.



Yes, I managed to find some goodies to spend some money on. The lady here told me about another store- Wool and Goods in Rollinsford, NH. Another expedition! I am going to put a list together (in the next few days) of places to buy wool fabrics in New England. If you know of places, let me know and I will add them.

Portland is a great town- amazingly good food and resaturant scene- even made it into the NYT! I look forward to spending more time there in the next 4 years.

Tomorrow- what is ahead this month.

  1. You’re making me homesick, Mimi! I spent my childhood in Biddeford, Me. and lived in Portland for a while as a newlywed. Those beach shots get me right *here*!
    The wool excursions sound like fun. Wish I lived closer…I’d love to join you!

  2. Oh boy, that looks like a great store. I hope we can get back to that area someday, we visited briefly some years back but it wasn’t nearly long enough. It’s so beautiful and there’s so much to see & do.

  3. Boo hoo you are making me homesick too! I was just home in Maine a mere few weeks ago… I am so happy that you are telling about this shop. I would love to go there on my next visit. Thank you loads for sharing!!!!
    Hugs from Emily xx
