taking the plunge

Pass the paper bag, please. I have gone beyond the point of no return.

Some of you may, perhaps, argue that I passed that point a long, long time ago but I am not in the mood to quibble over details. This time, it's the real deal.

I have signed up to be a vendor at a local sheep and wool festival.

No, I do not have enough product from our farm alone to fill a booth. No, I am not in any way, shape or form prepared for this.

But yes, I have gone and done it anyway. I was fully prepared to back out approximately 15 minutes after I mailed the check, but fellow shepherd Val talked me down and convinced me that I could do this.

Watch this space. The ride should be interesting, or at the very least, more frantic than usual, and as you know that is saying quite a lot.


  1. I'm with you, babe! All the way! (So I guess I need a paper bag, too?)

  2. Complementary paper bags will be distributed to all who care to join me. (Glad to have you on board!)

  3. LOL! I am doing a fairly big fiber show on the island in September, and ever time I dye yarn for it, I end up taking it to the gallery! Ack!!!

    Maybe we can keep each other on track!

  4. Oh, good! Free paper bags? May I choose my favorite color now--or will you have them laid out for personal selection?

  5. They are all brown right now, but choose your color and I will dye it right up for you...

  6. Ohhhhhhh.....I'd really like a periwinkle blue with a navy border. TIA!

  7. Good for you! Liz and I are doing the Farmer's Market later this month though October.

    Lets get this good stuff out there!
