Have You Any Wool?

Connecticut Sheep and Wool Festival has come and gone. One day events can be a mixed blessing. While there's less time away from family and the rest of life, it seems that once you finally get set up it's time to start tearing down.

That's how it was for us on Saturday. We were still unpacking and organizing when the festival started on Saturday morning. But that didn't keep people from stopping at our booth. We worked around the mess and eventually cleared out the boxes. With a steady stream of people in and out of our booth the day went by in a snap. And then it was time to pack up and head home.

I did manage to break away for a bit and wander around the grounds.

The weather was beautiful - dry, sunny, pleasant temps. It was a great day to be an outside vendor.

It wouldn't be a sheep and wool festival without animal pictures.

This sheep was in a pen of shorn and unshorn sheep. He would probably be naked by the end of the day.

And this cutie from Tucker Woods Farm . . .

. . . the perfect model.

I was reminded of the nursery rhyme Baa Baa Black Sheep.

Wool. Three tables full.
