Until next year Sheep and Wool!

It came - and it went - and now I'm exhausted! But it was a great weekend!! :)

MD Sheep and Wool festival was this weekend and I've been on the go since Wednesday night helping Jolene tag, scan and get ready for her debut at the Cloverhill booth! I have to say it was a complete success.

The space went from this:


to this:

Cloverhill Booth

thanks to help of some awesome people (you know who you are) it all got setup and looked awesome.

Then the crowds came!!

It was a madhouse on Saturday and a calmer pace on Sunday - but overall it was a wonderful weekend.

I did manage to sneak away Saturday afternoon and some yarn and roving "jumped" into my hands....

Here's my haul...
The haul

Enough yarn for two sweaters - enough roving for one sweater and some special skeins in between. I will give you all the juicy details soon I promise!

I also got to see some of my most favorite people from Blogland!!

Blog friends at Sheep and Wool

From the top - I was thrilled to see Christi, Pam, Amber, Judy and Amber's mom; Michelle, Rosanna, Ann, Jody, Chelette and Cici , and finally Stacey,Lolly , Isel, and Lolly's pal Jenna.

More pics and stories coming soon! I have to spread out the love :)

What a great booth! And I am so inspired to take a trip from Frederick to visit Cloverhill. I think we need another yarn crawl!

Why is it that when I see or think of you, I just get happy?

It was such a treat to get to see you again! Like whipped cream and a maraschino cherry on top of a multi-scoop ice cream sundae type of treat!

Warm hugs to you!

I tried to find you at the festival, but that was on the trip into the Main Barn that fried my brain. To the point where I couldn't find The Mannings where I was trying to meet a friend. Pathetic. I should have tried again when I came back after my lunchbreak. Looks like you had a blast! :)

I am SO jealous, I must go now and sulk on my bed, alone and without pretties. (heavy sigh)

Bea said...

Looks so fun. I'm glad you had a great time and the cloverhill booth did so well!

cici said...

That was a blast... let's do it again :D

Looks like you had a blast! It felt sinful to miss out, but with First Communion we just ran out of time.
