Fiber Farm Tour and Our Dear Friend Angie

Jim  and I are on another little fall get-a-way in the Olympic Peninsula up north. We left on Friday afternoon and it was such a beautiful fall day. Antiqued our way to Poulsbo and had a great fish and chips dinner outside on the deck! We all know that these days will soon be coming to an end.

Saturday morning we drove to one of the farms on the fiber farm tour in Quilcene. Our dear friend Angie Bickerton, was exhibiting her wares at the Taylored Fibers Farm owned and run by Linda and Barry Taylor.

 This is Barry blending a customer's wool.It had silk in it and was just lovely!

Linda was  outside selling her beautiful dyed wools...the colors are amazing and you just want to buy it all!

And now for the best part~Angie's booth and all of her goodies. She had needled felted dolls and figures along with some awesome wooden peg dolls and other wooden offerings. Of course, Old Saint Nick wanted to come to live at our home and guess what else??? Of course, a doll! I'll have to do a post on her later. She kindly gifted me with a treasure too. Thank you sweet Angie and you know I will treasure that little lady forever.

Here's Angie with Old St. Nick who now belongs to the Colantino's!  Really cute little guys.
