Another Meadows of Dan Folk Fair Success!
Friend Jane teaching weaving at the Kids' Tent. Jane graciously agreed to spend the day and camped out in the yard the night before!
Me playing hillbilly and spinning with lovely Tammy who came to visit! It was so nice to see her. She gamely spent the afternoon talking to people about spinning and it was fun to have someone to spin with. She's wearing a lovely shawl she knitted here; there's more about it on her blog.
Sweet Mary helping with our butter churning demonstration. The local antique dealers loaned me different churns to help show how butter was made, but I was afraid to use their pieces. So I got an old blue jar off the shelf at home and we managed to get some butter out of milk from a local Jersey cow. Nex time I'll use a solid lid, though, instead of the kind with a ring! It didn't really take long to get butter, once the milk warmed up!
Meadows of Dan Folk Fair. I didn't get to see much of it, of course, but there were activities all over town, music all day and lots of great things to eat! We thought there were twice as many attendees as last year!
