MARYLAND Bound!!!!!!

I'm back from a fibre vacation - Maryland Sheep and wool Festival :)  More fibre and yarn and other treats to tempt me - and best of all BIG bags of Maggie's mother fibre for me to fondle and hopefully spin some of.
Came home with a big bag of Maggie's wonderful roving especially a wonderful celadon colour that is just stunning!!  Also aquired a beautiful Romney fleece (thank you Maggie)  a STUNNING mango wood spindle and some amazing fibres from my dear friend Sally and a great new fibre mystery book to dig into :)
I even won a first and a fourth place ribbon with my spinning -can you see how goofy I look LOL
We camped out in the van which is so much fun (no it really is) and had so much to do and see -met some wonderful people including Linda Cortright from Wild Fibers Magazine and Richard Ashford from Ashford Handicrafts.
And Maggie won BEST in Show with her amazing photography -she also won two other blue ribbons -her pictures are soooo beautiful - I think she needs to offer some of them for sale (hint hint)
HUGS all
I'm off to spin more!  Counting down the days till the next event - Bouckville NY - June 9th and 10th at the CNY Fiber Festival - well worth the time to drive down as this is a very nice festival that is going to be HUGE.

Wow..I am so envious that you get to attend these great American shows. Someday I hope to attend myself ...it just seems so very far away and expensive too!!
