Get your daily dose of Fiber!


097


Last weekend I headed south with the 3 kids to the local fiber festival - a long awaited adventure for all of the senses! It was a gorgeous day filled with fiber fun!
We figured out Leo's drop spindle,but still need to work on our drafting.... picked up some roving for everyone & added a couple more spindles to our collection.

Eily (wearing her fabulous new set from Dayna of My*Unbirthday)had a chance to work on her weaving a bit while Leo held the most gorgeous angora bunny...he almost had me convinced we needed to add it to our menagerie at home but then I came to my senses!

the colors and textures were intoxicating, inspiring and the perfect way to spend a fall day! Be sure you get your daily dose of fiber!
