Riley and Chinney's Red Ribbon

Aren't cats the most amazing critters? I never know where I will find Riley curled up. Usually he's in my chair that I sit in to spin and I have to move him. But this box is a new place and I just had to photo it. It's sort of artsy, don't you think? The light, the shapes, the texture?



Friend Nancy took our fleece to the MIAF show last weekend for me. Thanks, Nancy. Chinney belongs to both Beth and me and we are very thrilled that the fleece took a second. Remember last spring Chinney won her color championship. I love this picture of her and Beth's son, John, at our 4-H fair last summer.

This really is a very black fleece but the way the light hit it, it looks gray....

Congradulations on winning second place. What a beautiful colour..it looks a sort of taupey grey to me in the photo.

I can speak from regular contact with Riley that he is ONE COOL CAT!! Great "Artsy" photo Maple!

HURRAH for "First Mate" Chinney's fiber and the chuckle it gives me to see her with "Captain JOHN Sparrow."

Aren't we lucky to have such fun with our Alpacas??? Are they supposed to make us Smile this often?

Cats do pick the strangest places to sleep, don't they??
