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.

      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.
