Today was the Denmark Sheep Festival in Denmark, Maine and what a good time was had by all!
Albert and Victoria, donned in their matching sailor suits greeted each and every guest today, as they entered.
I had contemplated skipping this event as I am so behind in fiber production, but then again, I was looking forward to a day away from my office to enjoy the company of the many fiber friends I have not seen much of this winter.
Hannah, being the blossoming fiber artist that she is, came with me to help man our booth. She is such a great little helper and what a fun way for her to learn about counting change and a little math.
One of my favorite displays this year belonged to my good friend, Michelle Delucia's of Sunshine Dream Farm. See that nice big bag of white roving to the right???
Well, it came home with me ;-)). It is some fabulous corriedale top from Michelle's sheep, Calvin.
A funny story.......As Michelle and I were weighing out her Corrie top, a few people were standing by watching us. A little later, a woman was shopping at my booth and saw the corriedale roving that I had for sale, and she was very confused. She asks.."Why would you buy corriedale from the other booth when you have some here??". I explained to her gently that Michelle's roving was top and mine was carded roving." Hmmm........I think she though I was crazy.......LOL.
It's been such a long time since I have purchased any yarn or roving, as I have just been so busy in my real life job, that it was a treat to be out shopping again in the fiber world.... and of course I couldn't just stop at the lovely corrie top, as this scrumptious orange silk was screaming at me..........and then of course, the little sheep pottery coffee mug, made by my friend Julie of Kick The Moon Farm came along for the ride home :-)
Even Hannah had a fun enough day that she was willing to smile in a photo with the felted flowers that she created thru out the day.......and any day that happens......it is a GOOD day!
