Go ahead, make plans

This is my booth at the Washington County Fiber Festival. Tammy and Shawn did a great job setting it up last night. It is actually the first time I haven't set up my own booth, and while that felt a bit strange, it was a relief.
This was just one building.......there were 90 vendors in all. This was early this morning, and everyone wasn't set up yet.
This is definitely a show I could spend money at. So much yarn, wool, fiber, all the stuff I love.
Washington County definitely has a lot of enthusiastic fiberholics out there.

I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more yarn......I have so much already. I need to use what I have.
I should write that on the back of my hand, so I won't forget it for tomorrow, when I go back to wrap it up, and take one more look around.

I did treat myself to a wonderful fabric holder for double pointed knitting needles from Crippenworks, and I plan to get one for my regular needles.
, We went to the Adirondack Balloon Festival, but it was so windy, that we didn't stay. None of the balloons were even on the ground when it was time for them to go up. We expected them to cancel any minute, and we knew we should beat the traffic.

Logan and Ava had a lot of fun running around watching the kites flying.
And tomorrow, the balloon festival is already cancelled due to the forecast of LOTS of rain.

I will be on the road, to the studio, to the fiber festival, then to take my grandkids home.......I get tired just thinking about it.
Is is Monday yet???

Hope you did well at the Fiber Festival, Hilary. Your booth looks splendid!
Raining here in Maryland, so it fits this Gordon Lightfoot tune.

May you sell out!

nice booth! Haven't seen a folding rack like that, it holds a lot of rugs. Like the shelf, also. Hope you did well at the festival.

I'm surprised that the balloon races scheduled so late in the season. Ours is the beginning of September and even then, sometimes they get into trouble because of weather. I hope your booth did great. I looked very inviting.

Welcome to my world.
