Next year when I go to the MDS&W festival, I will...

be better prepared. I wasn't expecting that many people. Oh but all the yarn, and the rovings, and the fleeces! I was definitely in fiber heaven for a while. It was certainly a crush getting through to all of the vendors. And the lines. Wow! Some moved quickly and some not at all. Next time I'll remember to buy when I see it. I will not tell myself I'll go back before I leave. Especially when you're on a bit of a time constraint. After wandering for a couple of hours, (4 hours!) I realized I needed to get back to Virginia (an hour and a half away), in 30 minutes. No time to go back and get what I needed wanted.

I really need to learn how to spin...

Cool festival photos, Eileen! Too bad you didn't have more time to shop but maybe you can use it as an excuse to make up for it later. "Of course I deserve this after I passed up (fill in the blank) at MDS&W."

Thanks for sharing your photos, although that one about spinning directly from the rabbit kind of freaked me out!!!

Have a great day!

Love the spinning photo and the sheep are just too cool. I'm sure it was totally overwhelming but fun!
