Wet and wooly weekend

I am back from the New Hampshire Sheep and Wool annual tradition for Long Ridge Farm and many other farms and vendors, showing sheep, selling fleeces and other farm products and just plain good shopping for fiber fans!

The weather was classic, a gray Saturday and a very wet and wooly Sunday with heavy downpours. Thankfully the rain held off until mid-day on Sunday so the roofs didn't start leaking until almost the close of the show. We have come to expect less than perfect weather at this great annual event, in our 35th year!
Faith joined me for the weekend and not only was she a great help but also so fun to be with. My most cheerful gal!
We met so many great people across the weekend and of course saw many good friends as well.
These ladies are sporting some cleverly designed headgear....from Friends In Fiber
getting ready for the show and not happy...baaaaaa
a bumper sticker...
not just another pretty face...
and an awfully cute face!
this lamb was moving so fast we couldn't get a steady picture...
clever art...
All in all a great weekend....enjoying friendship and the reward for all the hours of hard work getting ready for show season!
Thank you to each and everyone who made the weekend a pleasure for Long Ridge Farm.


  1. ~ we always hope for "nice weather" for these events .. but there is something about chilly/damp weather that does make everyone Want Wool :) ~ m.

  2. My friend Jackie is attached to that "awfully cute face"! Glad you did well despite the rain on Sunday.

  3. Wow! Cute is right...Sunday's rain was at least fair until pack-up time, but it rained so hard barn floors started to get wet and roofs started to leak...oh shades of 2005!
