The Sheep Wannabees is a winner!

My newest quilt just won a blue ribbon for Best Embellishment in the innovative category at The Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton VA.  The competition was fierce.  I am honored that my quilt got the prize.

Weird stuff that is available on the web...

I was stumped when my source of Lincoln Longhair fibers didn't respond to my emails for more.  I sent a postcard to her today. I don't have her phone number.  My DH suggested doing a search for that fiber on the web.  I found two more people who responded to my quiries and were willing to work with me.  I stumbled onto a site that sold YAK! fiber, so I bought some.  I got an email that it is in the mail already.  There is a yak on the Wannabees on the lower left side.

Then I answered one lady from OR and I am sending her a check for Gotland sheep fibers, which she said were curly like the Lincoln but easier to felt.
