Reading train station is just 10 minutes away. Let me know if you need a lift.

Wonderful Woolfest 2014

Was especially delighted to exhibit at Woolfest this year. The weather was just fantastic as was the show. Somewhat of a challenge setting up a long and skinny stall but it worked. Seemed like tons more sheep this year and they brought back the sheep auction.

Scott and I had a nice late breakfast before  leaving( selfie here).

But had to race back home to get back to Savannah and Theo who managed not to trash the house in our absence. Savannah I spent a bit of time at the Henley regatta and especially liked seeing a woman enjoying the sights  (sic)and sun while knitting under the bridge.
