In wonder of Woolfest

Blogging hasn’t quite ingrained itself in me yet but I’m working at it and couldn’t miss telling you about my inspiring day at Woolfest. Unbelievably, it was almost a month ago.

Woolfest is everything woolly and its fantastic! Its for all kinds of crafts people and artists. Its both inspiring and a great opportunity to stock up on supplies and treats (I did). Its great to see the rare breeds on show and understand their characteristics.

My pictures capture some of the lovely pieces on display; my apologies for not capturing many credits. Some of the pieces are created by the talented Wool Clip members who organise the event each year.
