The lineup of lamb cuteness just keeps on coming. We’ve had some challenges with these early babies and some of their mamas but we soldier on to overcome each difficulty. As you can see the rewards are well worth the effort. The barn is overflowing with lamb-love.
And speaking of soldiering on… although it is now the 29th, as in 29-Days, and we are both still on Day 16’s assignment, we are loving every minute we can devote to our secret object. No spoilers, please!
Several new projects in the fiber room – new yarn development and batt planning
To truly wrap things up – here is your moment of zen – compliments of Ivy’s little ewe, Darling.
“She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands”
~ Proverbs 31:13
While the weather outside has been pretty frightful, all the activity in the fiber room has been pretty delightful. There’s always something going on. Here’s a glimpse of some of the things we’ve been up to.
natural dyeing (l to r) cosmos, rhubarb, cosmos + cochineal, black-eyed susan
carding naturally-dyed cochineal lambs wool
naturally-dyed millspun yarn – black-eyed susan and hibiscus
We had some wonderful helpers in the fiber room on Saturday. While Lena organized and filed paperwork, Harley helped at the skirting table. A few more lambs’ fleeces skirted, while the two of them practiced cursive and helped with wool records. Harley decided that she was in charge of ‘fluffing’.
All that wonderful help and entertainment, sure made the time fly 🙂
