Fiber in the ‘Boro

I finally found a piece of time to write up a blog post and show you all the fun we had in Murfreesboro this past weekend. I have been working on a complete overhaul of the website as well as other tasks since my last entry, on top of spending some of Friday and all of Saturday at the booth. Since I already showed you some pictures of the booth on Friday night, I will show you what the children took while they were hanging out for the day with me.

I guess this is how I look when I am doing my thing. LOL!

Someone’s view of yarn from the bleachers behind the booth.

This needs no explanation, it’s just quintessential Elijah at his cutest.

Classic Emma behavior here. She is quite a ham for the camera.

Despite the strange look captured in this picture, she was over the moon to be in such close proximity with all the animals.

She is an animal fanatic of the highest order.

I thing this was the highlight of the day when the animal owners allowed her to go inside the pen with the llama. If it had been a horse I am fairly certain we would have had one less daughter after that. She probably would have stowed away in their horse trailer, LOL!

There was a pond out in the front of the venue where the apparently spent a lot of time.

It was sunny but cool on Saturday, which is pretty nice for pond exploring. Less bugs at least.

This is my oldest son, Josiah, who must have been especially photogenic that day because there are sure a lot of pictures with him in them. Smile

Kyla, Joanie, and Josiah poised on hay bales..for…some…reason..?

Reminds me of an album cover picture or something, LOL!

Okay it’s late and I need to close for now. Oh, I did finish the sweater sleeve and started the body last night so maybe more knitting to report soon.

Many Hands Make Light Work

I know it’s a cliché but it’s still true.

Booth set up fiber in the boro 2011

We proved it today for sure. The whole crew went this afternoon to set up our booth for Fiber in the Boro and even though half of them are untrained for the task, we got set up in record time.

It was certainly not all work though, as you can see from this picture. LOL!

This was hilarious to watch and I wish I had thought to get a video instead of only a still photo. Elijah isn’t used to having so many playmates at a show and was taking full advantage of it.

The facility is very nice and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to vend at a show that is so close to home with no overnight traveling. Did I mention the free AT&T Wi-Fi?

I was pleasantly surprised to even see it mentioned by Clara Parkes in the Knitter’s Review newsletter. This is the first year that Fiber in the Boro made a separate event from the Cannonsburgh festival that was last weekend.

I have no doubts that it is going to be a fun weekend. I will try to have some more pictures from the festival tomorrow. I will give Joanie my camera and have here get some stuff. She likes doing it and always has interesting ones.
