I went Saturday morning - a whole lot of other people went too - my Gosh!!!!!! The indoor pavillion was chock full of vendors and buyers. It was hard to get a good look at everything being offered. As usual, many women sported things they had made and as usual, many women were walking around knitting - they didn't manage to bump into anyone either!
I haven't felted in awhile, as I have said, and was sad that I wasn't inspired by all the color...the wool, the yarn, etc. I bought some hand dyed wool pieces, though. There was a new vendor and she was selling squares of wool (like fabric) for embellishing. She cut pieces out of the wool and embroidered them on another piece. This was different and totally doable.
As the day wore on and I went home, the magic happened!!! YIPEEEE - I got the bug again. Sooooo, I went back Sunday morning (nice Mother's Day beginning fo rme) and bought a few things. I'll tell you about these in my next post.
BUT I JUST HAVE TO SHOW YOU THE PICTURES OF THE SHEEP!!

|BLUE FACE LEIESTER SHEEP - LOOKS SOMEWHAT LIKE A DEER|

|THIS GUY HAD HAD IT WITH TWO HOURS OF BEING SHOWN IN THE RING. BEFORE THIS PICTURE HE HAD REARED UP AND TRIED TO JUMP A FENCE. HIS OWNER AND SON WERE DOING THEIR BEST TO DRAG HIM TO HIS PEN AND IN THE PROCESS LET HIM HAVE HIS WAY WITH A CHOMP.|
