Foster Old Home Days



































You know the drill..........a country fair, friends and food. It's a prescription for fun on a warm summer day. Luckily we were spinning our hearts away under a wonderful tent with the best breeze on the fair grounds. I did partake of some seriously sinful treats like doughboys and raspberry chocolate chip yogurt.

Many of the gang were there as well as some newcomers. Paula, queen of aran, was in attendance with her spindle on both days. Carol M not only spun her mojave fiber, but won the spinning bee with her record singles! Marva spun some to die for wool and alpaca blend from Twist of Fate. Sue spun on her Hitchhiker wheel and worked on a dark blue black shawl on her triangle loom.

Davis and Iris came by as well to show us their spinning. David won a reserve ribbon for his spinning of both Jacob fleece and Chow fiber. Iris showed us her wonderful Chow hat she knit which has a extraordinary halo! If you are interested in spinning dog fur see this.Way to go David!!!!

David and Iris even brought some fiber they washed and carded for everyone to try.
