Thank You, Sedalia!

May I just say? WOW! What a Fiber Festival (okay, I've not been to any other, but I've been to three at Sedalia, and this year? By far, the best! We had a blast...and if you're on dial-up? You might want to go get some tea, because this is one picture heavy post (sorry)...

First up? The gal who shared my space was Designs by Mera:
Lovely stitch markers and jewelry.
You think she looks familiar? Why you're right, that's my dear daughter! I think she feels it was worth the day (I hope so) and she met a lot of new customers...
I'm an "old" customer, but she was kind enough to let her old mom have one of her darling clay sheepies - of course, she occasionally gets a bag or two, as well, so I guess we're even. Aren't they cute?

Here's a view of my side of the booth:
That, by the way, is Rae of ThinkingKnitter (that's her name on Ravelry, too). Check out her patterns...
Rae's my sock-knitting, Red Hatter pal, and she's picking out her fabric for her new Posy Too!

What would a fiber festival be without critters?
Cute Critters view 1
Cute Critters view 2
Cute Critters view 3 (these are my favorites!)

And another Cute Critter:
Wait...that's not a "cute critter!" That's my Sock Summit Partner, Dianne...

She and HER partner in crime, Dana, were amazing - they are the movers and shakers behind this festival and they did an astounding job! (I never got Dana to stand still long enough for a photo, but Dianne was in charge of raffle prizes, so she was at the microphone a lot)

Did I buy anything? Well not all that much...
I found a colorway of Trekking I didn't have and fell in love with - #322. Yes, it's one of the tweeds...

And then there was this:
I've bitten the bullet. I've bought a Bosworth Mini. Mary Ellen was kind enough to toss in that merino roving...and then, I picked up the booklet from her, too, to help me understand all this...

Mary Ellen also has a beautiful Kromski Minstrel that I was looking at...maybe...someday - IF - IF I pick this up and find it more interesting than I did when I was just "playing" with the spindle today...

(don't hold your breath, okay? I need another expensive fiber hobby like a new hole in my head)

But still - what a fun, and exhausting day! I think I'm going to go take a shower. It was very humid - but it did NOT rain! YAY! Still, there were trees that were shedding some sort of teensy white stuff that snowed all over everything. To be safe? It's a shower and shampoo - no allergy attacks allowed!

Oh, I'm so glad it was such a great weekend for both of you! (And your daughter looks like you, you know ;) ) The spindle looks gorgeous -- you'll have to let me know what you think of it, I've been considering getting one of those... (like I need another spindle, ha!) Bring it to Sock Summit so we can play, 'k?

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
