Can you...

guess where Karen and I have been?
.
I'll give you a few clues.
We travelled a short distance up the motorway to Cockermouth in the Lake District.

Arriving in good time, we didn't have to queue very long to get in.

We saw wonderfully WOOLLY Wensleydale sheep.

Absolutely adorable WOOLLY Alpacas.


White WOOLLY Angora rabbits

and Gorgeous WOOLLY Angora goats

WOOLFEST 2010!
Did you guess?

I hope you appreciate how hard it was taking photos

when really all we wanted to do

was touch and caress

ooooh and


aaaaaah!


Yep! It sure was a real hardship having to stop and click

when there was soooo much scrummy woollyness all around us.


but...

You're worth it! x

Hope you enjoyed it.

Sorry, what was that?
.
Did I buy anything?
.
Of course I did! LOL!
.
Love Fi x

I went to the one in Wales. I had a great day, looks like you did too.

I bought some on the felt cut up bits - what can i do with them. Also i an still trying to work out what to do with the silk cocoons i just had to buy as they looked so nice and were only £1.95 for a bag!

Any ideas?????

Did you see the tiny black lamb?

I was there on Saturday, I think along with most of the knitters in the UK, at least it felt like it!

Karen said...

Looks like the perfect outing. And the loot! Great finds. Can't wait to see your embroidery on this latest piece.
