David and Jonathan went to Greene, N.Y. to pick up a John Deere tractor that David is going to put a new diesel engine in. It has a snow blower, a plow and mower so it will really help here at the farm. They stopped in Oneonta, NY and ate at Brooks Barbeque and drove around Cobleskill and I think they really had a nice day. They left here at 4:45 a.m. and got home about 4:30 p.m. and were both tired. My niece Debbie, that rototilled Darcy's garden, also went up to my brother Everett's to do his garden and got stuck. She called here and David took our Kioti up and pulled her out. We could certainly have a pretty good Mud-bog here. Rowan and I planted some sweet peas in my raised bed last week where I have a trellis and they have finally peeked through the ground.
I was at the Tasha Tudor Museum on both Wednesday and Friday. Amy helped me move things around and the gift shop really looks nice. I had 8 visitors that had made appointments on Friday and I will be there this coming Wed./Fri./and Sat. I think it could be quite busy seeing how its Memorial Day weekend. I hope to go to the Massachusetts Sheep Festival on Sunday but it depends on the weather. If its really rainy, I probably will not go. I am going to add some pictures of the Jamaica Fiber Day that I was a vendor at this last Saturday May 21st. It was such a nice day with the town hall full of vendors. Kami from the Bromley Inn had two of her beautiful Alpacas in a pen out front of the hall. Its always nice just to get to be with other fiber people and we all end up buying more than we sell, because we just can't walk past fiber and not "EWE" and "AHH" over things, and then buy them!
It was very worthwhile to be there and I have put out a call to my fiber instructors to set up more classes here at the farm. We will be doing Beginner Spinning, Drop Spindle Spinning, Dyeing Wool, Fleece (from raw wool to roving), Wet felting, Needlefelting, Weaving and much more. Please check out our classes because we will continue to add classes as they are scheduled. I also sold some of my lovely roving that I picked up from the Battenkill Fiber Mill. I am so happy with it and I have three times in the last two days been able to spin on my new Lady Bug spinning wheel, I'm spinning my special "VINCA" and will make myself a vest! WOW, that will be a first in a very long time, to actually make something for myself.
Well, I think that covers everything got the moment and I need to go get a few things done before Jonathan and I go shopping. Tractor Supply is my favorite store so we will go there this afternoon. So-long from Maybelle MaMa.
