Another festival finished. Sigh. I had a great time! I met some terrific people for the first time, saw old friends again and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Our vendors were incredible and days later, I am still genuinely awestruck by their talent and generosity. The festival visitors were fun, friendly and so enthusiastic. I'm still in post-festival recovery/withdrawl, but here's a quick something....

Here's our banner that intersected Bridge St. & Main St. in downtown Bedford.

And, of course, there were goodies....

I treated myself to Ebony needles (Knitters Pearls) from Blue Ridge Yarns and a pair of Brittanys and Surina needles from ISeeSpots Farm.

Knitnana of Nana Sadie Rose made me one of her beautiful Grace bags. It's now my dedicated
"sock" bag and I am loving it.

Also from Nana Sadie Rose, I received matching sundry cases for my other two knitting bags.

Wonderful Linda gifted me this beautiful skein of Trekking. I've finally "broken down" and purchased a pair of Size 2 needles. At long last, I'm going to try to knit small & fine yarn.

Equally wonderful Dianne gave me the gorgeous Studio 43 yarn bowl, as well as its contents, a skein of Kid Hollow's mohair. I've only petted the yarn and the bowl so far, but eventually, I'll put them both to work.

I'll be posting some fun photos this weekend while I'm at my sisters. In the meantime, I wish all of you a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend! :)

Festival Prep

I really hadn't planned to blog again until after the festival, but this golden opportunity presented itself and I just couldn't resist. Every member of my family has been involved in getting ready for Saturday. My son's been sharing his computer, my daughter has been furiously practicing face painting and my's one of the many things that he's done....

"Okay, take one photo for laughs."

"Okay, show what the girls have painted."

"What the *@!?"

"Dana, if you show this to anyone, I'll...."
