The Fall Wool Festival

We ended up with a really nice weekend. The original forecast called for cold rain Saturday and Sunday, but luckily they were wrong :-). It was a pretty chilly in the evenings and Sunday, but a certain heavy wool sweater kept me toasty warm.  Here are a few shots.  There are more pictures on the festival blog.
 

Lovely Petunia.


A surprise new calendar.  All lamb pictures, all year :-D.


20 on one of his few breaks...also known as before the festival opened for the day.  He was one busy sheepy.  We had a little chat on the way home and he said if I kept sticking a Keep Calm and Hug A Sheep sign on him that he might need a stunt double for all that hugging.





Renny made some new friends over the weekend.


And I enjoyed teaching a bunch of really fun people how to drop spindle and made some new friends as well :-).

I love the natural beauty of your booth and products! Rick is waffling on going to Lexington for another ISELP seminar next month; I'm secretly hoping he doesn't because we can't afford to ALL come and I'll be jealous if HE goes!

Looks to be the best ever Wool Festival! How blessed we are to be surrounded by such shepherdesses and artisans under one tent!

Is this THE calendar for 2013? You said it was a surprise, so I didn't know if it was an extra for the Wool Fest, as well as the regular calendar. When will it appear on Etsy? I'm ready to get mine!!

What are the little bags? It says "For the ....." something with a 'B.' I figured sample bags for the spindles, but B?

SO thrilled you are having Hug a Sheep Day again!!!! Gotta come get my sheep fix!!

Your booth was just perfect! I enjoyed each picture in the post and admired your craft and skill. You are extremely talented, Dear Friend.

Priceless, as they say.

I'm trying to get stuff back up on the etsy shop this fall. Have a big vet bill to pay off so need to get on that! I may do a blog post when I do that, but I'm not really good at promoting myself - feel awkward and try to keep the blog mostly fun...

The small bags are For The Birds - little bags of wool to put out in the spring for your birds to use as nesting material.
