Small tapestry and random Thanksgiving

I finished this little tapestry this month.  It was inspired by a barn I saw in the Austrian alps.



Barn Burned Down (now I can see the moon)
5 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches, hand-dyed wool

And here is the random part...
On the way back from Nebraska we stopped at this great yarn shop in Buena Vista, CO.  I was disappointed that my usual interest and innate yarn-drive did not kick in.  I think Germany's more reasonable yarn prices ruined me for yarn in the United States.  So I went home to my yarn stash to find my next project...  the stash is fairly large, it was still hard to decide.

And this is what happens in the San Luis Valley during potato harvest.  Small town living.
