Rhinebeck :)

Wonderful weekend as always -best fiber of course could be found at Maggie's Farm -have to get a picture of my stunning new roving from her -you have to see it to believe it though -it is sooo gorgeous!!!
Here's a few snaps to hold you till the camera cord turns up :)  We had so much fun with Maggie, her stunning granddaughter Hannah -who is an incredible spinner and felter and her mom Annie.

 Weather driving down was horrible but Saturday and Sunday was stunning but almost too warm 70 degrees.
 Love the buttons!
Love Llamas! Not so fond of Alpacas though -they just seem sort of weenie compared to the noble and alert gaze of the llamas and the fiber in my opinion on the llamas are so much nicer as well.

Getting ready for Rhinebeck

Here's this mornings work all done - have to go to the other job this afternoon :)  I also have six plied skeins of yarn on the wool winder that I have to get a picture of.
I love the textures and the colour variations of these horn buttons - its amazing how they turn out from when you start with the horn to all the sliced and shaped buttons.
Best off all they are all natural and recycled material. How perfect are they to go with those one of a kind wool creations that everybody is planning for those cold winter months.
