Yes I know, it’s another two parter Rhinebeck post like everyone else does. But, my camera battery is charging and I only made two purchases so you have to wait!
This year, the girls – Peggy, Sharon, and myself, drove up to Jessa Lu’s house to spend Rhinebeck weekend in her camper. Little did we know that Mother Nature had different plans for us. The rain started Thursday around 11 pm in the Plainsboro area and was a torrential downpour until about 1 pm on Friday. All of that rain also fell in Jessa Lu’s back yard where the camper had been living. Lots of rain in a short amount of time resulted in a camper that was sunk into the ground up to its axels and a stuck truck. The camper has since been rescued and moved to higher ground, but 2012 Viva la booze camper was not in the schedule anymore. Since Jessa Lu is the best hostess ever, we crashed on her floor the entire weekend! But anyway, onto the pretty photos!
It’s peak leaf time right now, this is one of many many many gorgeous trees on the Dutchess County Fairgrounds. Saturday is always the busy day:
But when you are spending time with awesome friends, the day goes quickly!
It was great to see people I only usually see at fiber festivals and to meet new people from Plurk (Hi Erica and Emily!) and it was great to spend time with my girls: Annie, JessaLu, Peggy, and Sharon!
I also got to see Heather and meet her friend Helen.
And the trees and leaves! Oh my! The only thing that could have improved the weekend would be a little more of a chill in the air – it was weird walking around with short sleeves on – that is usually the MO for Maryland Sheep & Wool.
It was a great weekend and I will share my measly 2 purchases tomorrow!
