Sorry I have been incognito! It’s been crazy busy around here, what with family obligations, Shepherd’s Harvest, building renovation and, for a while now, physical therapy for an ailing back! OUCH!
Shepherd’s Harvest Festival was as great as usual, a wonderful way to spend Mother’s Day weekend. This year the weather cooperated unusually well…sunny and warm both days. I barely sat down either day. I did manage to exit the festival with no new fleeces…but not everyone did so.
Tonight is the second week of HAYRIDE! a post festival class, at the Weaver’s Guild of Minnesota, for people who bought fleeces learn how to prepare them…especially those pesky ones that suddenly reveal themselves to be full of grass and hay.
Next week is consolidation and completion…perfecting technique with the combs that work best for the particular fleeces people are struggling with.
