Sadly, I have overestimated my ability to hand stitch. As you can see, my ring finger is still very swollen, and tethered to it's sore but less injured neighbour. But, the good news is that I can still shop for fun new supplies!
On Sunday my friend and I went to the Silmaril Farm Fleece and Fibrefest. It sounds like a big event, but really it's a small 'open house' sort of event where you can watch sheep and alpaca being sheared, Pat some adorable little goats and enjoy newly hatched chicks and ducklings.
There are also a few vendors selling yarns and fleece, etc. As you can see, I found some wonderful fibres that I'm looking forward to using in some upcoming art pieces.
