Most every year, my dear husband brings me to the NH Sheep and Wool Festival for Mother's day and this year was no exception. We have attended it when it has been hotter than hot, and cold and wet. This year we were treated to the most picture perfect day you could ever want to have for a fiber festival.
Now you have heard me complain about my growing stash and how I am trying to weed it out a bit, so like my friend Laurie, I was trying hard to be "mindful" of what I purchased. I almost thought that I was going to walk away completely empty handed............but it WAS my mother's day weekend, right?
I was relatively well behaved though. Some lovely taupe colored polwarth silk/angora roving from Woolybuns started my downfall. Very hard for a Woolen Rabbit to resist such lovely roving. While I was visiting with Chris, I managed to guess the answer to her silly quiz and my prize......Angora...haha! This is extra lovely angora, so something special will have to be planned for it.
The last purchase of the day was this Golding Spindle. I know, I know......I say I don't like spindling, but yet, here is another beauty.
Just to prove that I actually do spin on them, I took a picture of this one this morning...with fiber I actually spun on it...LOL. I have to say, this spindle could convert me. No matter how bad I am, this baby just keeps spinning and spinning. I love it!
One of the best parts of any fiber event is the opportunity to visit with the fiber friends I have made along my journey................but did I get any pictures of my fiber friends? Nope.....too busy yakking, as usual.......but......
How could I resist this picture of the ever patient Dale, holding his lovely wife's bag....heehee!
