A small problem with rain.

Woolfest was not to be after all due to a pet emergency ( not Magnus, just in case you were wondering. ) Next year we'll be super organised and I'll have more time so save up.

This weekend saw me dressed oddly and spinning in public at the Letham Victorian Market. My chum from the Spinning Guild, Brad, had organised a spinning demo and roped in some volunteers. Volunteers who had to dress in a Victorian manner. I look more country bumpkin than dandy but it was great fun. We spun and people watched and all was going so well until the sky filled with clouds and a ton of rain fell in half an hour. Our little gazebo bravely withstood the deluge. The people watching were not so waterproof. So we consoled ourselves with some cupcakes and pondered on the rainproof properties of fleece.

Here we are then - me, Julie, Brad and some cakes.

I am sorry you didn't get to go to woolfest, but this spin-in looks like a nice substitute!
Let's not speak of the rain. June brought 20 out of 30 rainy days here.
