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)
