Finally I made it to Maggie’s booth loaded down with bags and bags of fiber and yes, I will post the pictures later, I made it back to Bundaflicka, a.k.a. Maggie. All I can say it was like coming home. Thank you Maggie, Kim, Carol and Libby. You are the best. I was going to buy some soap and hand cream. I was especially interested in “Espresso”. Hay, anything that contains vodka and coffee has to be awesome. Well, I could not buy it. It was very generously gifted to me by Maggie herself
along with a huge ball of very yummy multicolor rowing
and a very pretty skein of alpaca yarn.
Kim has gifted me with very nice bamboo DPN’s and I am using them already. Carol presented me with a very yummy yarn that she dyed herself and yes, it is purple. She also gave me purple handles on the condition that I will make a felted bag for them.
Of course, I will. It might not be as spectacular as the ones she makes, but I will give it my best. Libby was a calming a steady presence. My DH is very much taken with her spinning wheel that fits into a fairly small wooden briefcase. Also last but not least, Maggie gave me a wonderful picture of her farm. By the way, one of Maggie’s pictures was First Place and Best in Show. I bought two bags made by Maggie.
I love them. Roomy, sturdy, with lots of pockets and very, very pretty. To me they are the ideal knitting bags.
All too soon my DH called me and asked me to meet him at the entrance. I came out and we could not find each other for a few minutes. It turned out that his GPS directed him inside the fairgrounds near the 4H building. He tried to tell me that there was no place to park, but I firmly said that he should do what the other people were doing, and park on the grass. He did, right next to the police cruiser!.. Amazingly, not only did we not get a ticket, but after spending another 40 minutes walking around, taking pictures and meeting Maggie and Co. our car was still there. And no one said a word. Like I said before, this year was the best!
