Waldorf market

What a great day! We were so pleased to get there after all the prep work...yawn...

Here are my naturally dyed wools, knitting kits, weaving and honey..
I am in love with my wools.
Terri with her knitted gnomes and sweet farm animals. Thats her hubby on the right, he is a great artist! [he paints commission portraits from photos - if you want his details then mail me on dehningc@gmail.com]



Each class dressed up and paraded around the school field. Here are some photos of our favourite ones.
The hand made pirate ship, was a family favourite because....





...it became a source of entertainment for our children. They carried it everywhere, they had so much fun!



Oh teenagers are soo cool! They realy do want to bring change. Look at these wonderful hand painted boards that they carried on their parade around the school field.

Gosh.... I remember when I was so idealistic... life was so innocent....

I still hold my ideals close to my heart, I just dont parade them in public any more. -LOL

HI Carle'

That is one beautiful stall. Wish we had markets like that here. Your wool looks gorgeous grouped together like that.

I'm so envious! This looks like a wonderful event. There's a Waldorf spring fest coming up in May in NY that we're looking forward to attending. This post gets me inspired to go!
