Hmmm...


"Wonder if she's going to be able to get all those cool looking wool wreaths done before the festival starts on Friday..."

I'm really not that behind, but I'll feel a lot better when all the bows are attached and the truck is completely loaded.  The wreaths are pretty neat I think and I'm happy with the felted sheep this fall.  I've got a big box of Stella's honey packed, many, many bags of wool and pretty roving (Petunia, Graham, Beanie Baby and Ford are super nice), the usual Christmas and greeting cards and we have the 2013 Equinox Farm calendar ready to go too.  My favorite drop spindle kits are packed, some fun bird nest builder kits and 20 has his wool sweater ready.  Looks like he might need it this weekend :-/.  There are also a couple fun surprises as well :-).  

If you are in the area, the Kentucky Wool Festival is a fun event.  While more of a craft festival than a true wool festival, there will be plenty of fiber goodies in the wool tent and the 'road of food' is beyond outstanding - think homemade chicken and dumplings, all kinds of homemade cobblers, roasted corn on the cob, baked potatoes and sweet potatoes and all the usual fried yummies :-).

Come see us!

Those sheep are just adorable! Have fun and good luck at the festival.

Kelly Eden said...

Oh how I wish I could go and get some of your goodies! I'd really love it if you would give a tutorial on how to make a wreath. I'd like to try making one! :))

Who's representing the flock at the fair this year? Are the Lamb Camp calenders for sale yet? Have fun!

Wishing you and 20 a fun weekend. I agree with the wreath tutorial idea. I am going to have a LOT of wool coming back from the mill in couple of weeks, need some ideas of what to do with it all. Are you selling your calendars online?

There you go again with those sweet sheep. If I lived closer, I'd love to go to the Wool Festival.

See you soon? There should still be water in the canal.

Wow!!! You accomplished all of that fiber art without me!!! I wish you the very best week end and hope your truck is empty 'cept for shelves on Sunday night.

Sound like it's going to be a fun time. I've got all of my goodies packed and ready (it took weeks to get the dye out from under my fingernails).

I'll see you there.

Wow, that sounds like a lot of work and even more fun. I love that little flock in your photo. I hope the festival goes well for you.

I wish I could get on a plane and come from Calif. I would love to buy a wreath and a calendar, for starters! Will you sell any online, or give a tutorial, as Kelly said above? Have a great weekend!

Susan said...

Wah! I want to go! Looks like I should get a live-in farmsitter...

Peacecat said...

I sure wish I could hop a plane and come to the festival! Please take photos of your booth and festival...

I'll stay here with the rain and wind.
