Well yesterday was our wetfelting/needlefelting a landscape class and it was just fantastic. There were 7 students and it was just so much fun to watch a scene come to life. It is something that I could really get addicted to......along with anything else I've tried with fiber. I will add some pictures and can't wait for the next class. Our next class is another fleece prep class. Its skirting a fleece,washing it,carding and spinning so its the complete process of preparing a fleece. It was a wonderful class and if you have interest in learning how to wash a fleece, please sign up early as classes are limited.
I had an e-mail from a very nice lady asking for some help. She was trying to track down the person that had owned the sheep she bought. Well, it rang a bell with me and she was able to contact the person and hopefully register her shetland sheep. She also gave my name to a lady and there is a possibility that she might want my beautiful little white Percy ram lamb. They have a beautiful shetland sheep farm and some of the most beautiful shetlands I have even seen. I think I'm going to buy a little moorit ewe lamb and possibly a little black ewe from this lady. OH my goodness, I am beyond thrilled because I lost my beautiful Maura that I had for 10 yrs. and she was the sweetest moorit ewe. This little lamb would definitely be extremely loved and help comfort me.
My little grandaughter Rowan spent the afternoon with me and is having a sleepover. She is in her pajamas sitting in PaPa's lap watching the movie Prancer. We made sugar cookies this afternoon and decorated them. We also went down to my sister Bev's house for a while this afternoon and Rowan had a great time there.
This evening Darcy and Declan helped me move my Tinka group across the road to another pasture because tomorrow they are suppose to pave our hill. I didn't want the sheep to be scared from all the equipment. Darcy starts back to school tomorrow so I will have Rowan and Declan. We are going to have a little table,chairs and snacks, sit on the front porch and be entertained by the paving crew! Whewwwww big excitement in this little town!
Today I went to Toby Hill to take care of my little Catherine and we made a batch of the most delicious Raspberry/Balckberry jam!!!! YUM, YUM I will have tomorrow and Wednesday off as Darcy, Rowan, Declan and I are going to Washington County Fair in Greenwich, N.Y. on Wednesday. It is a wonderful agricultural fair and we have a very nice day. Both of the children have big ear protectors to wear this year because of the tractor pulls. It will make a very funny picture with both of them sitting in the grand stand with their bright colored ear protectors.
Well, I'm going to read a little tonight and then go to bed early for a change. Oh yes I sold Rikki Red Squirrel at the fiber class yesterday so I will have to make another squirrel. Goodnight from Maybelle MaMa.
