but we could not stay here gazing at that all day - we had places to go and things to see. The festival was being held in the local auction mart and I had wondered how they would manage to 'tart' it up from the usual livestock pens, but 'tart' it up they did..
|Not sure if you can see but we entered through the 'calf unloading'|
- glad it wasn't for the 'old cows'
|Bet this floor has never been so clean|
|and the bunting was spectacular.....shame about the photo being blurred|
|Just a sample|
Some stalls were selling unusual cushions.....this Rhino just being one of them...
|The Rhino cushion is the one on the right ...not sure it would be so comfortable|
and it certainly doesn't have such a great smile.
|Let me tell you she had no time to sit|
and this is the lady herself.......especially for you V.
|Everyone had some thing to show and tell|
S and I had a bit of a break to be a bit creative ....... well, we weren't really creative just trying something new...... yep we made rag rugged sheep.......so sweet.
|Sheep grazing and a knitting kit to be made up|
The food hall (usually called the auctioneers arena) had some really yummy hot and cold foods, some other exhibition centres could take a lesson from them..... two teas and a 12" turkey salad baguette = £5.95 .
This stall on the other hand was not selling its seafood delights...
|All of this was knitted...some folk really do have too much time on their hands|
As far as I am concerned the first Yarndale festival was a great success. Entry price was great, food and drink prices great, and as far as I could see from the few I bought, 'kit' prices were very good as well, with most folk leaving with more than one bag of goodies.
