And another year of Black Sheep fiber festival is here!

After several days we spent in the mountains, we went to Eugene to check out the Fiber Festival.
It was not as hot, as normally at this time of year.
While Jason was circling around I spotted my favorite person - Judith MacKenzie, walking to the building, and frantically waived at her. She waived back. It made my day!
Firstly, we sat down and had some lunch. Than Nicole and Jason went to look at the animals...
And I, with my camera, went on....
