Sunday on impulse my live-in gardener and I hopped
in the car and attended the Flock and Fleece event at the fairgrounds.
This booth particularly touched my heart as I use to take
spinning and natural dye classes there when we first moved
to Oregon in 1975.
Now that is a long time ago.
I went on to a career in the world of apparel
and didn't keep up with all the creative pursuits.
Fast forward many years and my spinning wheel sits idle.
But my heart still yearns for creativity.
Aren't these colors amazing?
It was a bit over-whelming to see how the woolcraft industry has progressed.
The colors sang to my heart.
Yes, I came home with some wool.
I couldn't resist.
And look at these amazing sheep and goats.
That bag of wool just came off.
Hope he/she doesn't get cold with autumn coming.
This one is looking at me very suspiciously.
Judging was underway.
I thought this sweet one was smiling for me.
Isn't this wool amazing?
Well beside buying a bit of wool,
I signed up for a winter workshop in December.
Now I can't wait to get that wheel whirring again.
