Shenendoah Fiber Festival

Shh-- I have a guilty secret, which I will reveal at the end of this post. Last Fall my mother and I took the Bumper to the Shenandoah Fiber Festival. We has so much fun! I thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the pretty dyed woolens (alpaca, goat and sheep). So many wonderful colors:
 Those deep blues and purples make me feel calm and relaxed and they do my heart good.

These yarns were dyed using all natural plant material. I got see the whole process from vats of fleece to spinning, dyeing and final product. I went quite gaga and drooly over the whole thing. The Bumper liked looking at the animals, she thought the two-humped camel was especially funny.

My Mom enjoyed her granddaughter.

My guilty secret?
 I have totally fallen in love with crochet! Bring on the crafty, yarn goodness!!

I am making the Bumper a crochet Christmas stocking which I will reveal soon.
Lots of love and God Bless.
