An Exciting Weekend

I've just had a lovely, exciting weekend. Firstly on Saturday we had a visit from two of the grandchildren, Dylan and Sammy and their daddies.  It was great to see them playing together. There's always funny moments when there are children in the room. Dylan told Sammy, who was playing nicely with a train set, that he used to play with that when he was a baby!  He's only four years old now and played with the train set last year.  So sweet.

Then on Sunday, even though it was raining, Larry and I went to the Fibre East show nearby, held in a school and in marquees in the grounds. We took a spare pair of shoes in case we got so muddy we didn't want to get back into the car.

Unfortunately I couldn't upload the photos I had taken on my I-phone because it wouldn't synchronize with the computer. I don't know why. Maybe it was having an off day. However, if you click here, you can go to the Fibre East website and see the pictures from last year. You'll need to scroll down the page on their website a little first.This years pics aren't up yet, but there is a good photostream from last year.  It was an amazing show with so much to see that both Larry and I had a sensory overload by lunchtime. I made some purchases and since I took these pics with my other camera, they uploaded nicely.

The picture at the top of this page was of some roving I bought from Taylor-Made Yarns. Sharon specialises in art yarn using Wensleydale locks and she makes some remarkable things with it. Here is the link to her website.

The next picture shows some roving which I bought from Maggie Stearn. I love the soft colours she makes. Take a look at her website and see the lovely things she makes.

Lastly I bought some roving from Saras Texture Crafts. Check her out here.

I've kept to the same colour line because then I can mix and blend when spinning. For now that is ok for me. If I start using too many colours I will soon fill up the house and never get through it all.


  1. Joy ! New spinning fiber and happy memories of this time whilst spinning.

  2. How nice! I love that pretty color, and I sure did enjoy looking at those beautiful grandchildren on your sidebar! :-)

  3. Thank you DJan. We now have five grandchildren between us but no girls yet!


I love to hear from you. Please don't be shy.
