Wool-A-Rama Winner

Finishing her show career with a BANG!, Somerhill Belle Haven was
Best of Breed for all four shows at the Wool-a-Rama last weekend. 
She now has 9 GC legs, and is retired at the tender age of 6 months.
This is my third year for the show, and the third time one of my chinchilla
does swept the BOB in Satin Angoras.   2 years ago, her grandmother,
Somerhill Silver City did it, and last year, Somerhill Driftwood did.

BFL roving

I've been dyeing Bluefaced Leicester roving in preparation for the Great Lakes Fiber Show next weekend, May 26&27.  This is its 23rd year, held in Wooster, OH at the fairgrounds.  Each year it gets bigger and better.  Besides several buildings full of fibery goodness, there is a sheep show and sale, and an angora rabbit show. Besides the roving, sold in one ounce "flowers", I will also have handspun angora yarns.   Look for me in Building 39, just inside the door closest to the food court.  Oh, and don't miss having a roasted lamb sandwich.  Its worth attending just for that!

How rude!

I think this wren is flipping me off.  What do you think?
