Hello from Maybelle MaMa. Its Monday night August. 2nd and we had our wonderful Grandma and Me class at the farm yesterday afternoon. It was such fun and everyone really enjoyed the afternoon. We needlefelted heads, made very funny faces, and very wild hair. For wet felting Cheyl helped everyone make flowers and they came out beautiful. I will put a couple of pictures on so you can see the amazing items that were made. Alison taught drop spindle to one grandmother and grandaughter. Its so much fun to see people learning a new skill and having fun too!
After the class was over I sat down with Alison and Cheryl and we made a list of more classes that will be offered at the farm. I will put the list on our site as soon as I can. We will be having more classes Sept. thru Dec. and such interesting ones like Oct. 10th Diorama "The Legend of Spooky Hollow". This will be a 3D picture done in wet felting and needlefelting. There will be a rug hooking class. an Adult Fiber Camp, making pumpkins with attitute, making angels and snowmen, and needlefelting a Jolly Santa or a Victorian Santa.....please watch for the list.
Our Fiber Fun Day is coming up on Aug. 14th and there is still a couple of openings, please let us know by Aug. 6th..........I have come up with some incredible mystery fibers to spin this year.
Well as I have said before, there is never a dull moment on the farm. This morning at 6:15 a.m. I went up the hill to do chores and I look in the pasture and there are NO SHEEP!!!!!!! OH,OH, wherre are they???? I drive out to the barn and there they are standing there by the gate waiting for someone to open it for them. When I got out of my car Arly and Percy came running over to greet me and, oh by the way "Do you have any grain"? I opened the gate and they all went into the pasture. I put that group inside.
When I got home from work I put the bug spray on them because the bugs are terrible right now. I then moved that group to a new pasture across the road. I just opened up the gate and across the road they go with just a little treat of grain. Its always so nice when things so smoothly. I certainly was worried when I saw the sheep were loose because Darcy's garden would have been quite a picnic for them!
I made scalloped potato with ham, fresh green beans from my garden with new potatoes, cole slaw and a chocolate zucchini cake and took it to my sister Bev's house for supper. It was a really nice evening. Got to close for now and go to bed as its 11:30 p.m. I have to be up at 5:30 to start another day. Oh yes, I forgot to mention that Rowan had another sleep-over at YaYa's on Saturday night and breakfast in bed yesterday morning with homemade waffles,juice abd cartoons!!!! Who could ask for anything more? Goodnight from Maybelle MaMa
