3-show round-up! Fibre East

Gosh, looking through my photos and realised there are 3 shows I haven't even blogged yet!

First up then, Fibre East.

There's no getting round it, the word that cannot be avoided is wet. and wetter. and wettest. Yes, definitely the wettest show we've ever done. Emergency welly purchasing wet. Traders abandoning shoes and going barefoot wet.

Okay, I've got that out of my system now, thanks for bearing with me!

On the (non-wet) front, lots of lovely visitors gamely turned out (it takes a lot to keep a fibreholic from his/her fix!),

 cheerfully paddled round the stalls

and staunchly refused to be deterred by the unseasonal conditions,
so a big, big thank you to you all! A big thank you, too, to the organisers, volunteers and the farm staff who worked tirelessly to keep the show on the road.

And Sunday did produce some nice sunshine, there were some super hands-on mini-workshops and, of course, lots of lovely things to buy.

 Oh, and weather forecasters take note: We've booked two full days of sunshine for next year ;-)
