We're up to $240! Way to go people; that's a great start. Now, as the title suggests, I have another prize to show you. Heather of Sereknity is an incredibly talented fiber artist with a gift for combining colors in the most goregeous ways. She has created a very special colorway in honor of my soon to be born (December) grand-daughter and has donated a skein of it as a prize!
Check out that name - Sweet Clover! Isn't it gorgeous? It's even more so in person. That's 400 yards of hand- dyed fingering weight yarn in 60% superwash merino, 30% bamboo, and 10% Nylon. It is so soft and so beautiful. Want to own it? Donate for a chance to win it; the winner of this yarn is going to be very pleased, indeed! (Remember, you can be entered for a chance to win prizes by donating and/or by mentioning my efforts, with a link, on your blog).
Not only did Heather donate a skein of Sweet Clover as a prize, she also gave one to me! She's such a sweetheart; thank you so much Heather; you don't know how much it means to me.
Now onto the recap in pictures:
Patti and I headed down to Spencer-Pierce-Little Farm in Newbury, MA on Saturday for the Fiber Revival. What a great day (aside from a bit of wind) and what a beautiful place to hold this event. This was Heather's first vendor booth and I'm guessing she had a great day since we were only able to get over to talk with her at the beginning and end of the day. Every time I thought I'd go say "hi" and see how she was doing, her booth was packed.
Here's a picture of a rare quiet moment in the booth with her and Patti:
Sorry the picture's so dark.
This little brown one was soooo soft; that's Lora's little Nathan (the cute guy with the red hair) feeling just how soft.
The white one was incredibly shiny and looked soft, but he wouldn't let me get near enough to pet him. But he let this little girl get pretty close - he belongs to her family's farm.
There was a weaver demonstrating her craft and there were a couple of circular sock machines; don't know why I didn't get pictures. I must have been having a senior moment :-)
I did get a picture of Nancy from Hair of the Dog, spinning some dog hair.
The hat she's wearing is made with dog hair and she had some items there that were made with dog hair and OMG, they are soft! Looks like Patti may be contemplating having her doggies' hair spun.
And finally, my Saturday Sky (late again):
Have a great day!
