Yellow Springs

Well, I am back from a quick little trip to Yellow Springs Ohio and Young's Jersey Dairy for the Wool Gathering put on by the Midwest Festival of Fibers.  I just love this show!  Not only does it have a fine selection of fiber vendors and is only 3 hours away from me pulling the trailer, but....  It's at a dairy and oh my goodness are the fried cheese curds to dye for!  Pun intended!

The 'Wall 'O' Wool' at LunabudKnits.

I needle felted this little clutch purse from my merino fibers.  Yes, it is COMPLETELY needle felted and no, it did not cause me to have carpel tunnel ;)

My little painted sheep adorns the fairway of the 1/2 red tent.

Full shot of the booth.  I find the red canopy leaves a little to be desired for when selling dyed fibers.

Heartfelt Handworks, the vendor next to me hand felted the skeleton marionette!  Her craftsmanship is out of this world!

One of my customers and a fellow vendor of That'll Do Farm blogged about my fibers after the Mid-Ohio show.  And, here are her lovely batts she was selling at Yellow Springs.  How awesome is that!!

We had a wee bit of time to check out downtown Yellow Springs too!
A bit hard to see the fine print, but check out the link if you are interested in learning more about Yellow Springs.

One street was full of lamp post art work and yarn bombing.  How cool is that!

Yarn bomberific!

Not sure I should tell my Brother-in-law that an all LEGO store exists in a land close to us....  hehehe

As the sign says...  Bikes are for sale not rent.

How cute are these mail boxes on the side of a building.

I love the shabby charm of old paint chipping.

Out of no where....  A red door.

More lamppost art.

I loved this one.

Walk down an alley and you might find a small lion guarding a door.

Or a huge sea of dancing blue.

Or a juice joint you just can't miss!

What an amazing fiber trip!!

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
