More Rhinebeck in Pictures

The time I spent at Rhinebeck was "in the moment" time.  I thought only about who I was with and not about the future or past. Thus, I forgot to go to the meet ups on Saturday or Sunday and missed meeting many blog pals.  If I have any regrets that is the main one.  The other regret would be how quickly time flew by. How could it be over AND how can I now be sitting at a desk instead of still walking through the Rhinebeck Fairgrounds?  It was a whirlwind and is now a mystery.

A few times someone would call my name and another in the crowd would say "WHERE?".  That's how I met up a few friends, but my camera, while at the ready, never took a snapshoot of what was happening.  If the pictures in my head could be downloaded onto the computer would see more than you'd like, believe me!  So here is my weekend at Rhinebeck in a nutshell, with the few pictures I have. 

One good sheep picture.

Laurie, Amy  and Sherie.
I've wanted to meet Amy for years and had hoped to meet Sherie at Estes last June.  It was wonderful to bump into them while waiting in line for Franklin to sign our books.

is SO FUNNY.  I couldn't help but laugh out loud while reading it in the airport.

Here is Terry spinning on the Golding spindle I left behind (it was hard to pick between it and the one I did buy). She's wearing her GREEN Rhinebeck sweater.  It looked so fabulous on her.

Terry and Laurie both bought a fleece from   Foxfire.  Here they are inspecting Laurie's HUGE fleece, which I do believe she is sharing with another person.

Elspeth and I have had a mutual admiration society for some time and she was running around with Ann who was my first ever Secret Pal. It was a treat to run into them again and again (and you already know that's Laurie with them, right?).

You must have heard that Claudia won a first place blue ribbon for her picture of Kimber.  How cool is that?

This picture is for the Ewe-tah Grrls.

In the  Susan's Forest Canopy and Miriam's Icarus shawls.  They were there in spirit if not the flesh.

That's just about it for pictures, but I did put together one more post with a special picture (or two) and the fiber goodies that made it home with me.  More tomorrow!

In the moment is a good place to be. There you can absorb the memories best for later enjoyment. If you'd made the missed events it would mean you missed something else.

It looks like a beautiful weekend, full of sights, sounds, and experiences, despite a theoretical shortage of photos.

FUN - I'm so glad you had some! Jealous that you got to meet Sherie - she's such a great friend.

Good times.

I was so intent on making sure I caught the dogs and the Frisbee exhibition, that I missed the meet up as well! Hope you enjoyed your class and glad you enjoyed your time in Rhinebeck!

Wonderful. That fleece is amazing! And, grrrl, your pictures are wonderful. You can see the relaxed attitude in your pictures that is missing in others;--)

Sigh - next year I'm hoping! With Vicki!

I enjoyed the pictures!

Rhinebeck is ALWAYS like that. And everyone understands. The crowds made is really really hard to find people.

I was with a celebrity: the crowds kept calling for "Margene!" No joke.

How funny Susan and Mim's shawls would be displayed right next to each other. Whoa--that fleece was indeed HUGE!! Glad you had such a great time. :)

I'm so sad that I wasn't there! But I love seeing all your pictures. And how in the world is she going to get that fleece home!

I'm so sad that I wasn't there, maybe next year. How in the world is she going to get that fleece home!
