Quickie

Just stopped by for a quickie!
Hi to everyone I met at Sheep & Wool this past weekend, please leave me a comment with a link to your blog as I've lost the card where I was keeping track of everyone's email addresses and blogs. I'm still in the process of taking lovely pics of the stash I brought home. I didn't end up buying a drop spindle although I came seriously close. I talked at lenght with a very nice gentleman at one of the booths in the main exhibition hall (sorry, can't remember which one) and he gave me a lot of good recommendations. I saw some wonderful roving that looked like ribbon candy that would have made some lovely yarn. Still, I didn't come home with a drop spindle. I can't really explain why other than I just didn't. I stil want one, I still want to try one. I even saw a few that were within budget range, but I guess nothing really struck me, so I went home with no spindle. Don't worry, I didn't come home empty handed! More on that later this week. (I'm still not sure when I'm getting the cable hooked up at the new house, so no pics yet either.)
In the next few days I hope to dye some wool and paint The Stitchery....details to come!

It was a cool weekend! Hey what did you decide on the name for your Fiber Retreat?

Inquiring minds want to know.
