Woolfest what a wonderful show!

Our space as we arrived!
Rita carrying the picnic baskets....alas no picnic inside.

The transformation begins.....
Suzanne's wonderful picture was much admired.

What a truly wonderful show.
Amazing craftspeople and such lovely customers.
We had a ball!

Sadly I didn't get a chance to take any overall
show pics as was so busy!

But a huge thanks to all the lovely people that visited us
and a special thanks to Alison who came even though
she's recovering from a big op!

We can't wait for Woolfest 2014!
