Cookie Please

There will be more to follow...but please enjoy this as much as I did.

This KID was part of The Sedalia Spring Fiber Festival on Sat..I was scoping out the vendors just prior to the 10 a.m. opening and saw this little guy and thought he was in distress..then realized..he was just being a 'Kid'..he wanted another cookie.

The festival was most successful despite the fact we had been having torrential rains throughout the week...the rains held off until after 9 p.m. that evening and the weather was delightful.

The attendance was good, the vendors were excellent..their fiber was awesome..it was a perfect day!

There were many highlights..meeting new folks that we had contacted through Ravelry etc..but one special highlight was meeting a special lady I had been corresponding with via Ravelry and she had been such a positive influence over the last 9+ months while dealing with the ups and downs of having to shift roles and going from wife to caregiver for my Mother...that lady is Claudette or her Ravelry name is Holiday..what a beautiful lady she is...I was so surprised when I walked off the stage and was greeted by her..We didn't have a lot of time to visit but it was so special to meet she and her daughter..Thanks Claudette for coming and sharing our special day...and thanks to everyone that is on Ravelry that came to shop, volunteer or exhibited...You all were just spectacular!!!

I made a few gorgeous purchases...mostly they were gifts but a few for 'self''...At a later time I will try to highlight all the totally terrific vendors we had...I'm still in awe of the perfectly beautiful yarn they shared with us and made available at Sedalia...You guys ROCK!!!!

Thanks to our committee, volunteers, and the staff/volunteers of Sedalia..without you..this would not have been so successful! You ROCK2~

Awww, what a cute little kid!

WoW!!! I've been chomping at the bit all week wanting to hear All About It!
Figuring I'd give you and Dana a few days to 'recover' :^)

Looking forward to hearing more about the vendors and the people and the wooly critters.

2010... Sedalia or Bust.

I'm so happy everything went well and the weather cooperated with you!

And I second Marianne -
2010...Sedalia or Bust!

It really went superbly well...we had awesome vendors..good weather and a fantastic committee to work with:)..but Dana was the ShowStopper...she is so organized that it's easy to just pick up and work with her..She deserves all the credit..I just showed up and goofed off::))

Marianne said...

Oh, you did NOT ;^)
I looked at the photos last night, you were so cute!

Dana said...

Thank you for all that you did - - there wouldn't be a festival without you! (I can't begin to say 'thank you' nearly enough)!

I can't believe I missed this post! Sometimes, Bloglines doesn't pick people up! I'm so sorry...

You were just amazing (as was Dana) at Sedalia - and were these little guys adorable?

Thank you for all you do!
