This past weekend, I was lucky enough to have Garrett Ramsay stop and pick me up on his way to the Michigan Fiber Festival. This was my first time attending this event and I had a great time, meeting a couple people that I had only talked to on chat lists and reconnecting with folks that I have met in the past. The highlight of our trip is always getting the chance to get our hands sunk into some nice sheep and fleeces. I decided, kind of last minute, to enter a few fleeces into the fleece competition and then bullied Garrett to bring some as well, and Garrett ended up with 1st place Shetland fleece, I got 2nd place and then Garrett went on to take Reserve Champion colored fleece. (Champion was a dark Merino fleece) Not too shabby G, not too shabby.

|And here's Betty executing a perfect photo bomb and she runs through the picture!!!! |
Shortly after this last photo, things started to get completely out of control.......none of us could stop laughing. The whole photo shoot was supposed to be a silly set up of Garrett and I high-fiving (I know, that's not a word) each other while holding our fleeces.
|We thought this would be a funny way to take a picture and it was so much fun to pose for it since we were trying to be ridiculous. Why not sprinkle as much into our sheepy activities as possible? |
Congrats on the wins to both of you!!!!ReplyDelete
