Sheep and Wool Festival

We took a leisurely drive down to Tunbridge for the annual Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival yesterday. The foliage was breathtaking and we enjoyed the drive, avoiding the highways and instead, going through small Vermont towns.

The pictures tell the story.

  1. Wool festivals must have been all the rage over the last week. We went to one over the weekend as well, and I've read of a few others. It looks like your family enjoyed the wool festival!

  2. What a great way to spend the weekend! Autumn Festivals are just the best :) Glad you enjoyed

  3. Great pics , and that is bobbin lacemaking, tatting is a bit different. I learned to make lace from a dutch lady who is 70! She makes amazing lace!

  4. sounds like a fun way to spend the day...unless you're the sheep! I've never seen how tatting is done before, that looks amazingly hard. Have a great day!

  5. It looks like you had a wonderful time!
    Wool festivals are an incredible way to spend the day : ) Your little one is so sweet in his lovely sweater, we bring mason jars with water wherever we go!

  6. That needle felted window pane is stunning! What a neat festival.
