CT Sheep and Wool

This past Saturday was the 103 annual Connecticut Sheep and Wool Festival.  It’s a small, one day festival.  I didn’t discover it until about 5 years ago, but have gone every year since.

This year it seemed a bit sparse, in vendors and in people…but still offered up some goodies..

How amazing is that tatting photo? I would never have the patience to do something like that but wish I did. I also wish we had events like this near my town. You're so lucky.
