Well Dennis and I started out our July by attending the National Dairy Goat show here in Loveland Colorado. This is an annual event, with the best of the best goats being showed. It is held at a different location every year, and we were lucky enough to be able to attend it in our own back yard so to speak. The black and white banded doe in the front of the picture ended up being the best Nubian, which is my favorite goat.
WELD COUNTY FAIR
Also starting last weekend was the annual Weld County fair. The fair is getting smaller each year, which is really too bad, but we had a great time never the less.
The highlight of the fair for me, was watching these kids, running around and playing with their goat kids. All of them were having a great time.And of course, I had to take pictures of all the quilt exhibits. These were down from last year also.
I have been listening to the audio book by Jodie Picoult titled "Lone Wolf". It is a fascinating story, and I learned so much about wolves. Of course there is an ethical theme to her novel. But do listen to it on audio book, it will be worth your while. As I listened, I got allot done in my sewing room. I took all my scraps and put together this baby quilt. I don't have anyone in mind yet for the quilt, but I am sure it will find a good home.
