Scotland County Highland Games

October 2, we were at Scotland County Highland Games in Laurinburg NC.
If you are wondering about the three different looking tartans we are wearing, they aren't different except for color and weight.  The weaving pattern is identical.  Rick is wearing Scott Modern Green in a 16 oz weight wool, sweetest piece of fabric I have ever sewn!!! I have on Scott Modern Red in a 13 oz cotton, affordable! Lee is wearing, my favorite, Scott Ancient Green in a 10 or 12 oz blend.  Why is there difference between Modern Green and Ancient Green?  Modern is dyed in a chemical dye and Ancient was dyed in vegetable dye, originally.  Oh yes, Rick is holding Scott Modern Red flag and Lee has the Scott Ancient Red flag.
