There We go and Back Again

For a City Girl, it’s an imperative to Get Out of Town every once in awhile. For this City Girl, the more Country Days, the merrier! The sign above, at the entrance to the Allegan Co. Fairgrounds was a reminder, of sorts, to Let it Go. Let the City fall away, as mist receding over a far horizon. Leave it all behind and see what ye can see in the open air…

And right off the bat, one sees what one cannot see in Town. I did not realize, the first time I went to a fiber fair that there would be Fiber Folk, people who were busy in their corner of the universe creating incredible things, things you could only see if you were Right There. Chris Rosen, from Briar Rose, is one of those people – painting yarn like none other that delights and entices.

Notice the lady on the right *trying on* the skeins on her arm! I was doing this over and over during the day too in addition to Sniffing. Oh. Don’t look at me like that. You do it too. Just enjoy that tiny bite of vinegar, please ;p I’d be happy to pass it your way…
