Welcome to Fiber Arts Friday. I hope it's another magical place for you to find fiber arts blogging fun. I am seriously going through withdrawals this week. The enjoyment of camping, taking classes, vending and meeting up with some of the most wonderful fiber arts people in the Midwest is truly magical. I shared many of the photos from my week on my Facebook Fan Page but wanted to share a few more...my purchases.
One of the best parts about loving fiber arts, is that I truly enjoy supporting the other vendors at the show. As much as I love my Alpaca, I adore spinning other fibers and learning more about them. I'm a sucker for buying new tools too so...I did.

He even made a shawl for Marilyn (who I bought my fleeces from). Her shawl came from one of her Shetland cross sheep. He sure knows how to spoil us Shepherdess.
