Road trip!

 My knitterly pal Paula and I went to Almonte, Ontario for Fiber Fest 23. It was great to see so much yarn, fleece, fabric and notions. I bought three beautiful skeins of gorgeoness to knit cowls.

This part sure was a highlight though.

This is the lovely Noreen Young and her  famous friends. Her wonderful puppets were major players in Canadian children's programs for years. That is Little Gloria sitting on my shoulder. I loved it! Seeing the reaction of some of the younger adults around us was priceless. One young mother in particular got all teary and breathless. Noreen and Gloria engaged her young child while the mum got herself back together.

It was a lovely day. The sun was shining and there was a nice breeze.


  1. I would love this event. It is so my thing!

  2. Looks like you had an Enjoyable day visiting with Noreen. Cute Puppets.
    Stay Safe.

    It's about time.

  3. Noreen was in a Celtic music group back in the day, maybe 10-15 years ago. She might still be, but I have lost touch.

    1. We were happy to see the construction is done downtown. That was along time coming.

  4. Nice picture! Sounds like a fun outing. Love to see your purchases.

  5. This would be such a fun day! The puppet people are beautiful. ♥

  6. The photos looked like fun! I've been looking for felting pads, and cannot find any.
