The Fiber Frolic’s second day turned out to be a wet one, but a good one as well. People came out regardless of the weather and we met a lot of really nice folks. Got to talk sheep, fleece, roving and yarn all day! Can’t think of anything better, especially when I get to talk about my girls :*)
I made a tour around the show quickly this morning when I got the booth set up. There weren’t many folks coming through the gate at 8:30, so I had a chance to walk around with my friend Chris and we had a lovely time visiting with a few other vendors, the most notable one being Robbie Portella of Maple Lane Pottery! Robbie and I met very early on in our sojourn in Maine. She is a very talented potter, and I have a growing collection of her work. It has just the right whimsical animal touch, and I cannot resist a piece or two every year! Robbie is also a librarian and we have known each other through that end of the spectrum as well for the past 10 years. When I think about how lucky I am to have fallen into friendship with people like Robbie, Chris, Pam, Christine, Esther, Heather, Anna and all of our comrades in fiber, I feel truly blessed.
And now it’s really time for bed. I woke up at 3 a.m. this morning and never got back to sleep. I think it’s time!
And so it goes. The rain is still pounding on the roof and the wind is still blowing. Hoping tomorrow finds us a little lest wet. I am hoping that our road doesn’t wash out. It will be close!
