Another New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Festival has come and gone. The weather was picture perfect and spending time with good friends was as magical as ever.
Now, one thing you are not going to see on my blog this year is pictures of those friends because I didn't take my camera with me. Learning to use the new camera is like trying to learn how to ride a bike again. I am sure that you will see a bunch of pictures over the next few days however.....the grrls were in rare photography form..LOL!
As we have been tearing apart my barn in preparation for the Studio that Ken is building for me, I was ever mindful of how much fiber I have stashed in there, so I resisted the temptation to by too much fiber.
The only stuff that did come home with me were these 2 lovely angora blends from Chris. Yes...you read that right...angora...and yes, I have a barn full of angora, but these are ready to sit and be spun and oh so beautiful! The only other purchases were some yummy dressings and a beautiful gift from Ken for Mother's Day.
I met up with the grrls for lunch, but for the rest of the festival, Ken and I took our time enjoying the weather and our day away from home. At one point, he told me he felt bad, thinking I would rather be with my friends as I don't see them that often.
Silly man.......what he doesn't realize is that I treasure the time that we get to spend alone even more. Having 5 children, well, you can well imagine how that goes. We spent a number of years attending the festival was with a child in tow complaining each step of the way how boring it was. I have to admit that i have enjoyed the childless trips a bit more :-)
All in all it was a fabulous day out! A grrl needs that every now and then. :-)
