I was getting pretty excited about our trip to Maryland and then caught something with a nasty cough. For about a week I tried everything to get rid of that cough and finally decided it was time to go to the Dr. He gave me some antibiotics and cough medicine. All I can say is antibiotics rule. I felt so much better after taking them.
As for the Festival it went by way to fast. This was my fourth time to go to this festival and I have to say it is still overwhelming. There is just so much to see and do there. This year there were five in our group. Dax and I met up with my sister and her daughter and a friend of my sister also joined us. We camped out at Patapsco State Park. I did take a lot of pictures but wished I had taken more.
Some highlights from the trip:
-The dogwood trees were in bloom at the State Park, very pretty.
-I enjoyed meeting the couple who camped beside us. The lady was nice enough to show us some of her spindles that she collected from the festival and we got a bonus of entertainment when we heard harp music being played from their campsite. We looked over and saw the gentleman with her playing a harp.
-I really liked the Guest booth this year. It was a booth representing Medieval and Renaissance Textiles.
-I loved seeing all the hand knit items people who were visiting the festival were wearing.
-I also enjoyed seeing all the animals.
-I have a lot, I mean A LOT of pictures of sheep from this trip. Dax took my camera to the barn with sheep in it and came back with pictures of nothing but sheep.
-A big thank you to my sister's friend Beth for showing us how to do Kumihimo.
-I can now say I have more roving/fleece in my stash then yarn. I think I better get off the computer and start spinning.
I hope everybody has a great week.
