My first stop was in the main building in order to pick up a fleece. It was crowded and rather hot for being only 9:00 in the morning.
By 10:00 the wooly stuff had to come off. It was hot and we had a long trek to take the fleece back to the car. I loved my Sonata Crest of the Wave tank top. It was cool and comfortable. I got lots of compliments on it.
My first stop was at the exhibition hall where I saw this amazing needle felted sheep who was quite rightly covered in ribbons.
It was as crowded as usual in the morning but it seemed to thin out considerably in the afternoon. Everyone is trying to beat the crowds but coming early is not working anymore. It was horrible at 9:00. Elbow to elbow in the vendor booths.
I played with the morning's addition to my stash. I'll do an entire post of all the goodies when I can think straight.
After the sheep dog exhibition I did more shopping. I made myself buy something from someone I have never bought from before. I tend to go to the same vendors every year and buy the same stuff. I really went out my my comfort zone here and I'll show you why later.
Having said all that I had to go to the one place I always go-Pucker Brush Farms. I just had to get my Party in a Bag. This year I got a really big bag.
Summer Flies, you say? Maybe.
We took the long way around and doubled back past the fairgrounds on Rt 70 to go home so I had one more chance to wave goodbye. Not until next year-just until tomorrow. I will be back-and I need to remember to buy some sock yarn!
Wonderful pictures! This is my 6th year going, and I still haven't managed to see the dog trials. Next year...ReplyDelete
It's the first place The Mister heads. He loves those dogs! We used to have a Border Collie and he was the best dog ever. Of course ours herded kids-not sheep!Delete
Looks like a great day - and you deserve every compliment on that top - it's beautiful!ReplyDelete
