Last Sunday I went to the Finger Lakes Fiber Arts Festival. This is a yearly event and a major source of fiber for my spinning wheel. I try to go every year. It's a 5 hour round trip from our house and I consider it a 'mini vacation'. Jerry isn't interested and doesn't care to go with me. So off I went armed with my CD's to listen to on the trip, chicken salad for my lunch (I don't care for the carnival food that is provided on the grounds and it's too expensive. And there's more cash to use for my purchases that way!), and my camera. Can't forget the camera! *note on the chicken salad: To a can of chicken (drained) I added sliced celery, chopped apple, and dried cranberries, and mayonnaise. Next time I make it, I'll add chopped walnuts too.

Enjoying the festival so far?
