Photo Monday – Rhinebeck

It was the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival last weekend.  Rhinebeck for short. It’s huge and I love it.

Fiber Flame Studio were here again this year so we did that first.  The projects are easy and fun.  V did the wet felting and cut it up to glue onto cards again.  (I’ve reproduced that activity at home with great success.) E chose one they didn’t have last year.  Definitely trying it at home too!  She felted wool around a tennis ball and then cut it open to get a small bowl. She reinforced it from the inside with a square of white felt and sewed a line of silver thread all the way around the top. I added a few beads for her.

After lunch, we headed to the shopping area that also houses animals.

(I seem to have focused on the llama-alpaca-vicuna family this year.)

…and we were off.  The girls still don’t have the stamina to stick around until closing but V said she loved it!  Guess who’s going back next year?
