We managed to find a park not too far from all the activities. first on the schedule was a quick bite of lunch, then it was time to go through the tents. Up on the top field there were four huge tents with 50 exhibitors in each. So much to see, smell and touch. These really fascinated me, quite unusual and interesting.
Trying to find a spot to view all the items sometimes was a challenge as there were just so many people, 1,000's.... Three and a half hours later we'd finished going through the four tents, time for a rest and see if we could find Hollie, who had toddled off ahead of us at our suggestion. No sign of her so we moved on to the lower field of tents that were surrounding the Flour Mill.
This mill still grinds it's own flour and behind that brick wall is a lovely big paddle wheel. Hollie had a wonderful time shopping, I was very well restrained, most of the things I saw, I thought I could do myself for a fraction of the cost. I did come home with a lovely new leather belt to hold up my jeans and a yummy body scrub and 2 t-shirts for Luke for Christmas, but that was the extent of my shopping. Time for some dinner and get Hollie back to school. It was after 9pm before we left the school, so we didn't make it home until after midnight.
Picked Suki up today and she was so excited to see us, so excited in fact, that this has been her position for most of the day. That's one pooped puppy. I did a little fabric shopping this afternoon and managed to get the fabrics for the Autumn quilt, so they'll go into the wash tomorrow and get put to one side for use.
Tomorrow I hope to make a start on putting the Crab Apple Hill wall hanging together and get it ready to pin out.
Well I think considering the amount of sleep that I didn't get, it's time to toddle off and count sheep.
