First of all, I want to apologize for being a bad blogger: I forgot my camera. <duck and cover> Sorry. Both fiber fairs were pretty small and really, there wasn't much to photograph aside from some cute baby goats. I am sorry I didn't get a shot of the babies. They were all kinds of cute.
My friend Eric has been knitting and spinning for years and years and seems to know people everywhere. I made the mistake of not bringing anything to work on with me so when Eric started talking to friends, I didn't want to rain on his parade, but I didn't want to sit around and be bored either. Naturally, I bought myself a drop spindle and went looking for a bit of fiber to spin up while I was waiting. (From now on, I will never leave the house without at least one fiber project!)
While I was sitting outside spinning, there were a number of people who stopped to watch, which was something I expected. What I didn't expect was the bee that flew up to my drafting fingers and hovered like it was watching, then move around to another angle and hovered a few seconds longer. I couldn't help cracking up watching it watching me. It was the best audience I've ever had.
Sunday's show was much smaller than Saturday's and aside from a lovely location, there isn't really much to tell. There was nothing there I couldn't live without, except for a really good hand-dipped caramel apple. Yum! Oh, they had a bagpiper. I love bagpipe music!
When I got home this afternoon, I discovered that my larger sized spindle box... is too small for my new spindle. I was planning on next weekend being a nice, quiet, stay-at-home weekend. I guess making an even larger box will be on my nice, quiet agenda.
