Fibre Festival overload

LOL well not really but it was awesome! Two weekends of two of the best fibre festivals the US has to offer. First up Maryland -aka the big one. Went with Maggie and got to meet her incredible and beautiful daughter Mia for the first time. It was an overwhelming array of fibre, beautiful booths and lots of sunshine! Missed some dear friends there Henya -now in Israel who makes the most stunning stitch markers and knitting accessories - 
and Libby who was competing on a long distance trail ride in NY that weekend.  We also caught up with Candace who makes her own jewelry -very stunning! She sells at the Hamilton Farmers Market in NY and various other shows -you need to check her out!  Also met the incredible Linda Cortright -publisher of Wild Fibers Magazine and I picked up a subscription for my very own :)
Came home to kids and real life and then packed it all up again to travel this time not only with Maggie but my own darling hubby Daryl to go to New Hampshire -completely different vibe and feel than Maryland - much more small fibre producers and unique one of a kind artists.  Both were wonderful in their own way. I love seeing how people use and grow their own fibres.
And on a smaller note it is so much fun to have people come up to you and tell you they read not only Maggie's amazing and wonderful blog - http://bundaflicka.blogspot.com/
but also my own right here :) Thank you for taking the time to stop and tell me that you enjoy my ramblings :)
HUGS all
