Yesterday I went to Nieuwpoort
(instead of the St'nB in Rotterdam)
One of my favourite quilt/yarn shops
De Schapekop (the sheep's head)
organized the knitting/crochet festival
in the little old fortified town of Nieuwpoort
(Nieuwpoort got municipal rights in 1283)
The dyke with the water doors
and the sheep waiting to be shorn during the festivities
Fun decorationes of wool
I went there by car, but some friends from Rotterdam came by bus,
and we found each other in the shop
Hmmmm ... lots of "Kaffe Fassett"
There were five other places to visit and see beautiful stuff !
One of the stall holders was a lady who's daughter Lisette lives in Peru.
She brings down many wonderful items
when she visits her daughter there,
Wonderful craft !
I found some vintage lace bits and pieces
(nice to dye and then use in some felt or quiltlet)
a dark purple ball of sockyarn
and some wonderful green dyed silk (a present !)
And when we went back at the end of the day ...
the last sheep was shorn !
