Yesterday Rog and I traveled down to Allegan to the Michigan Fiber Festival. We had a great time. Even Rog, who originally said he would probably find something to do in town, stayed and enjoyed it! Something for everyone, as the old adage goes.
While the main focus of the event was geared toward knitters and weavers, they did have two rug hooking vendors. Linda Harwood from Hooked on Ewe was there. I had never seen her work, and I have to tell you it is just fabulous!
Kris Miller from Spruce Ridge Studio was there also. I know I have mentioned before how much I love Kris' work. Not only is she talented, she is just the nicest person and so helpful and encouraging. This is a rug that my husband wants me to do for him:
Of course, I couldn't leave without buying some wool. I think I restrained myself nicely....
Don't you think that blue and mauve would make the cutest little bluebird with a rosy little breast? And the orange.....well, I see some fall leaves or a pumpkin in its future.
After shopping, we watched the border collies herd sheep. It was such a hot day that this guy jumped right into his drinking water to cool off!
And, after seeing this guy with his funky hair do, we had a serious discussion about starting an alpaca farm!
