Tomorrow is the first day of the watercolor workshop I've been planning for three years. And I find myself with plants dug up from the neighbors' perennial flower bed, chicks hatching in the incubator, a new ram and a bunch of hungry ewes and lambs but a dead battery for the electric fencing.
Ah yes, spring has finally sprung!
So what did I do? Felted a birdhouse out of Finn and Karakul wool....
And felted another lamb fleece....
Sabrina up in Puposky, MN! She's really off the beaten path. What a wonderful bit of paradise she and Clancy have! I'm so glad Shachah was able to find a home with them.
|Shachah warmed up to Stan, but he was nervous about me. I'm sure he equates me with being moved to a new home. I think he's the coolest dog I've ever met.|
We went to Sabrina's to pick up Little Red Oak Ash, he's a polled moorit Shetland ram originally out of Gail VonBargen's flock. He's very solidly built and has a very nice fleece.
Okay, now I've got to get those perennials planted (the neighbors were planning to plow them all under in a couple days!) and then I'll order that new battery for the fencer and this afternoon I'll get the classroom ready for the long-awaited watercolor workshop with JEANNE CARBONETTI!!!!
Did I mention that I love this time of year? There are so many possibilities. Hopefully that chirping chick in the incubator will be freed of its shell soon.
