Left last Thursday for Eugene for the Black Sheep Gathering. This year took no classes, just hung out and had fun visiting and watching sheep & goat judging. I did a little spending but very little since I don't need anything. My fun find of the weekend was the water bottle holder out of neoprene with the embroidered spinning wheel on it. I bought some SporFarm shetland/merino in 2 shades of green (sorry she has no website to link to). I have no business buying any fiber but I love her heathery tons and the greens called to me - bought one 8 oz bag of each Friday and had to go back and buy one more of each on Saturday. Bought a shawl pattern, some Barmaids Lo-Lo Bars and forgot to add to the picture one of the Debra's Garden needle gauges that I'm going to make a necklace out of. Oh, and the fun skein of sock yarn was a door prize at the Barmaids booth - whoo-hoo!
Very exciting goings on in the gallery. Fellow guild member, Kathy Coolidge won the Black Sheep Cup for her handspun, handwoven Navaho rug - huge honor! Here's a picture of it - isn't it grand? I don't have pictures of friend Karen's ribbon winning felted items but she's got pix up on her blog - she does incredible needlefelting.
