I'm back safely from Woolfest. Not without adventure, Mum came down with a bug on Saturday morning, and I'm not insured to drive our camper van so my wonderful Dad spent the day driving north in my car so we could all get home again.
Woolfest itself was very, very busy. It's always been a fantastic show, but this year seemed to be very special, a lovely variety of stalls, and a gret atmosphere.
Here's my stall on the Saturday morning
It didn't look anywhere near this full by the end of Saturday. I'm at Fbre East in a months time so will be very busy making stock to take with me.
There are however a few things I've bought back that are looking a little tired around the edges, much like me! I'm doing what I usually do and I'll be having a pot luck sale. It will be on the website rather than on Etsy,at some point later on this week. I'll send out an email to the mailing list to let everyone know exactly when. For those of you not around the last time I did one, it's £6 per item, but you don;t get any say in what you get sent. Everything will be perfectly spinable, just no longer looking it's best. There will also be a few fibre club spares to go along with the old show stock.
While I was away the chickens seem to have grown so quickly. Cav now has the start of his silly head feathers, but even the pekins are developing wings.
Here they are getting their first taste of alpine strawberries.
and poor Cav, looking ever more ridiculous!
