Deb, Chappy and I headed over the river and through the woods and up the NY Thruway to attend the Martha’s Vineyard/Hudson Valley Fiber Farms Winter Solstice Party in Hopewell Junction, hosted by Susan and Patrick, owners of both fiber farms. You can see that it wasn’t the best of weather.
The bonfire was already roaring.
What a beautiful setting they live in.
Sheep and goats.
Chappy and the sheep checking each other out…
It was a wonderful party. It’s hard to judge how many people were there as people tend to move around and that makes it hard to count… my guess is 20-30 very nice, very friendly, very happy and festive people.
I was particularly anxious to see Susan and Patrick as I had a little gift for them!
It must be Vineyard related as it’s wrapped in the Gazette and in a Black Dog bag!
Tah dah …
It’s a counted-cross stitch of Martha’s Vineyard that I did. Where the MV Fiber Farm is I put a sheep of french knots made from THEIR yarn. See the sheep…
