We had such a good time at Woolfest last Friday and Saturday and thank you to everyone who came to see us, helping to make it such an enjoyable event.
Highlights for me included the lovely very pale grey Suffolk & Shetland fleece I got from the Wingham Wool Work stand, which I intend to use for edging and adding details to clouds in future. I'll try to use it as it is, but I think I may have to call on the services of my friend Jenny from Sky Blue Pink Designs to spin it for me. Other highlights for me included the hurdy gurdy man and the herdwick sheep & sheep dog puppet show.
Keith's main highlight was Indian Delights, one of the caterers at the event. Keith had a chicken tikka wrap for lunch on both days AND brought some home with him so he could have it for lunch and dinner the following day. Apparently they are going to be at a food market at The Monument in Newcastle for 2 weeks this December. So I expect we'll be paying them a visit. Anyway, back to Woolfest, next year's dates have already been announced and they are 23rd & 24th June. Hopefully we (and Indian Delights) will be there again. www.woolfest.co.uk
