1 word: Dead.

Seriously. Saturday, we were there. There were only 2 official McClellans in the tent, but honestly - we could have done it with only 1 (and did, since both of us took walkies most of the day). Only had 1 member sign up. Parade was taken over by the Boy Scouts - it was a)on time and b) mercifully short. The announcer had NO Clue, but eh, it was done.

I had a few nibbles on the wheel, but no crowds. Most unusual for me, but it's OK. 1 kid wanted to learn to weave, spin and knit - but he had no patience to actually *learn*; he figured you picked it up and *knew* how to do it immediately.

Sunday....Rain. All Day. NO crowds. The wheel stayed in the van - I don't get any of my wheels out if there is moisture in the air. We saw 3 clans pack up and leave before 12...and the Festival didn't open until 12. J. and I left at 1 - it was deader than dead. *yawn*.

I bought J a mug to match mine; he bought me a cute pottery dragon music box. (It plays - wait for it - Puff the Magic Dragon.

All in all, a good weekend...except my new husband has a jealous streak. He'll get over it, but it did put a dent in my normal Festival hugs and greetings. (Seriously - to get jealous of a hug from a friend I've had for over 10 years, simply because said friend is male and gives back rubs whilst hugging? Get a grip.......:sigh:)

I got half a bobbin of.....a wool blend in greens/blues/golds spun up (I don't have a label, and I don't remember acquiring it. It was simply on top of the stash when I went to pack my basket.....wonder if the stash is breeding?). Laceweight singles. Nice. If said husband would have let me stay in the tent as is my wont, I would have filled the bobbin...but oh, well. He'll learn that I don't go to the Festivals to shop or yack with friends, I go to work the tent. And spin. *g*

"wonder if the stash is breeding?"

I wish it could! Not only would you have the pleasant surprise of new fiber more often, it would also prove that the stash is being naughty while you aren't looking!

I'm glad, then, that I didn't make it out on Sunday. And, you forgot to leave your tartan with me sweetie. 'Course, I fo'got to request it too...

The kid... feh, I could have smacked him later in the day. He came back around and without asking, reached for the inkle. Like He could just pick it up and go back without asking!! His mother giggled when I put my foot down and told him no, we were packing up shortly. I think she's just as frustrated with him at times.

I don't want to remember some of the outfits I saw... and did my Candy Butcher find it's way home with you? I don't remember putting it away Saturday night... but, I was sleepy when I did, so...
