Well I made it there! There were a few points when we thought that it was't going to happen including a last minute scare last week but DH got everything sorted and after dropping the kids at school and Bean off with the wonderful "Glow" I packed the car and headed over to Sarah's to pick her up.
We stopped off on route at the "Mushroom" services.

Looks impressive but the coffee was terrible so we won't be going back next year.

Then it was onto Woolfest itself. It was of course fantastic and it was brilliant to see so many people from last year and to see all that yarn and yarny stuff. I'll do the list of stash seperately or this will be a ridiculously long post.
Once at the site Lottie put the tent up with just a little help and then finished getting herself ready ;)

Then we sat down to chill out and chat, one of the best things about camping is that we can sit with lots of friends. It was a fab evening and just for Lottie - your tree ;)

Next morning it was back to Woolfest where we looked a sheep

and generaly relaxed and shopped. I brought more sock yarn and also some BFL for making a bag and some lace weight in a knot for DH so untangle cos he reckons that he likes doing that. And of course I got to see lots of people and chat.
Lottie tried out a couple of spinning wheels

Once we were shopped and chatted out we went back to the campsite. Then Sarah, Lottie, Nic and I went out for a meal (and very nice it was too) before settling down back at the campsite for more chatting.
Tonight Sarah was ready for the midges though

And then Sunday morning it was sadly time to pack up and go home. It was nice to get back home though and I think I had been missed

Not only did I return to a Welcome Home banner and poster but there was also tea waiting for me

and a lovely cake made by DH with a little help from DD
