Summer has gone!! Fall is here!!

We ready did need that rain! Now that we are done with all the summer activities and the garden has been put to bed.  Its time to think of things to keep us busy in the evenings.  It is getting darker earlier.

I have been very busy with the new puppy, Mina.

She has me running in all directions and a joy to watch grow.  So I was a little slow in getting the classes sorted out but we have planned a few in the month of October!

Happy Easter…hop hop hop

Well it was very business this past Sunday.  All hands were on deck to help with shearing the sheep.  The shearer arrived bright and early with blades sharpened and got to work.  We had 25 sheep gift their wool coats. IMG_0  <-click on the link watch how fast we work.  We really don’t work that fast we did manage to get all fleeces off, skirted, bagged and labels  This is the easy part!  Next comes the washing, picking carding….

Snow, snow, snow??? Knit, Weave, Spin is better

Well this snow has given me time to wrap up a few projects.  We just finished up the February classes and had a great time.  The classes are a great way to get out of the house and learn something new or just have a fun time out.

So the next new class coming up is:
