Mr C and I had a goof-off day today, it was wonderful!
First off we went to the Festival of Leaves in downtown Front Royal.
There was a good turn out for the parade
I got to meet a wonderful artist, Sherie, from our old stompin grounds in Greensboro N.C.
Her work is awesome, incredibly detailed! Check her out here
Also got to say hello to Michele who will be painting a portrait of Paddy for me at some point. I guess I need to bug her more!
I’ve talked about her work before but if you haven’t seen her murals, go look here!
Wish I would have thought to get a picture of them… we even talked about my camera…sheesh!
We also met Melissa from The Wild Hare.
She dyes and spins her own yarns.
She turns this
Look at these beautiful colors!
She also makes these funky felted swiss cheese scarves
After we left the festival we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant for lunch before we headed to Posey Thisisit Llama farm where they were having an open farm day. Got to visit lots of beautiful llamas! They are very cool animals, you know I want some! Along with Alpacas of course!
They also had yarn, made from llama hair!
There were also some sweet goats to visit
It was truly a splendiferous day!
