BlackSheep Gathering was awesome.
Bought one fleece-
Oooh-ed and Ahhh-ed over fabulous things at the marketplace-
I still don’t know how I resisted buying one -or more- of those sheep. Here are some more of them-
And then there were all the cool real live sheep-
This little cutie wanted to come home with me, but we had no space for him in the car-
This sheep was an exceptionally good sport about being the shearing class volunteer-
I took in some fleece judging, too. Missed the Shetlands, because I was in a class Saturday morning, but I caught the colored finewools and some mediums too, and it is always fun to listen to Judith McKenzie talk about sheep and wool.
It was all so much fun. I need to do this more often.
Gorgeous photos and spinning! I somehow missed those stuffed sheep. So, what is that fleece?
I don’t think the sheep are stuffed. pretty sure they have a solid base with wool applied on the outside- the faces are pottery. The fleece I picked up is a little black/brown Romney. couldn’t resist the color. Shimon says I need to get pointers from you on exercising fleece purchasing restraint!
Hey, great job of pictures from BSG – What ever that was you spun up, it is gorgeous. Have fun with that fleece! Does the term “bringing coal to Newcastle” strike a familiar note….. 🙂 Ha ha. T.
