Glad you could join me. I'm stitching a life together bit by bit.

The Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival, held annually in Canby, Oregon, has been recommended to me for several years by my friend Reets.  I finally made it there on Sept. 25th with my mom and 2 boys in tow.  Thirty minutes after our arrival, we had a downpour of rain unlike the usual Oregon light rain.  We managed to have a good time anyway, with our kettle corn and wet kids.  The variety of sheep was amazing; these are just a few.  I like the brown spotted one - I've never seen anything like that!

Those of you that are weavers already know that you can get rabbit hair yarn - the boys wanted to bring one home - why not?

This lady sold me all of my super awesome wool yarn!  How cool is she from head to toe!

 Rich colors of the Mediterranean.

Look how yummy these colors are!  I totally loved this skein - had to have it.  
I think this would be fun to spin.

Goodbye for now.  Got my goodies and heading home.
