This past weekend I had the opportunity to vend at one of my favorite events, The Fiber Revival, which is held every August in Newbury, Mass at the Spencer Peirce Little Farm. In addition to the Fiber event that includes wonderful classes and pretty darn good vendors...ahem, there is also an old fashioned baseball game and ....a beer truck. How can you go wrong with that combination?
I have worked at this event for the last 3 years and this is one of the few events that Mr. Woolen Rabbit gets to help me with. I always enjoy having him come along.....good company and a great sherpa. <grin>. It's more about the great company though...LOL
You never know what you might encounter at this event. Last year I had a young goat inspecting my yarns and this year we were lucky enough to meet this colorful young and friendly lad up close and personal....hmmm...I am feeling a colorway coming on.
My most favorite part of this festival however is getting to spend time with good friends who I don't get to see nearly enough. Getting ready for a show is a TON of work and I whine a lot to Mr. Woolen Rabbit while I am power dyeing, but the reward is always worth it. I love seeing my fiber friends!! <3 you grrls!
Another little reward is this scrumptious bit of fiber (thanks Josette!) that I am going to be taking with me on vacation next week. A week that will include reckless nothingness. Sunning and swimming at the beach, endless summer reading, maybe a whale watch....and definitely some spinning and knitting.
I hope your week is filled with good things too!
