Michigan Fiber Festival trip in August

I neglected to post the photos from my trip with Kim Nikolai to Michigan Fiber Festival in August.......
So here goes nothing.

The fleece show had a large Shetland class, I think about 35-40 fleeces were in that show, but that's a guesstimate.  I was pleased with how well I did and felt that, my fleeces got beat fairly because the fleece that won Best of show in the Shetland class was beautiful and the win was well deserved.

Here is a photo of my line up.

I was happy with how the weekend went.  

Once again, we had a grand time with our friend, Stephen, during our 4 days stay in Michigan.  The festival was lovely and seeing old friends was the highlight of the time we there.  

We got to head to Four Roses Cafe and have one of their top shelf meals........

Pear pecan salad w/ lime vinaigrette dressing
Scallops-seared in whiskey on a bed of alvocado
And the best part: Scarlett O'Hare cheesecake.  w/ pecans and a toffee glaze.
They have a pastry chef that makes about 40 different desserts at 5 am every morning.  God bless that woman!!!!  The Dessert Menu at this place is longer than the main coarse menu!!! 

They say you should eat to live and not live to eat, but the person that said that has never tasted the food at this place.  If they said it loud enough for the customers to hear, my guess is that they simply not be heard from again.
