Thanks for a great weekend at Shepherd's Harvest

I had a great weekend at Shepherd's Harvest last week.
Thanks to everyone who took my birdhouse class, your houses turned out great! I only wish we would have gotten a photo with all the birdhouses that were made. I will remember next time! I've hung two of mine outside and am waiting for the wrens to come back and start filling them up with sticks.

Thanks to everyone who stopped in my booth,  it was great to meet new friends and to see so many old friends. Even though there is never enough time to talk!
 The lambs are growing like weeds and I'm making the difficult decisions as to who will be for sale and who will be retained.
I used the electronet to let the ewes and lambs graze the backyard for the past couple days.
They got into some mischief with the rhubarb and my precious peach tree. But I don't think any permanent damage was done. Next time I'll reinforce my hog panels with T posts. 

I really shouldn't breed the sheep anymore. Although I love the lam…

Shepherd's Harvest this weekend!

I'm trying my best to get everything organized and ready to go for this weekend at Shepherd's Harvest in Lake Elmo, MN.  I'm teaching the felt birdhouses tomorrow and then I'll be vending all weekend.
I'm packing up all my fibers, a few raw-felted pelts, some birdhouses, a little bit of handspun yarn and even my Louet Victoria wheel.  

Stop by the festival if you're looking for something fun to do. It's a free family event with music, food, fiber demos, herding dogs, sheep, llamas, all kinds of fiber-related vendors. I'll be in Building C, River Oaks Farm & Studio.
 In lambing news, Luna and Godiva delivered single ram lambs within 30 mintues of each other on the evening of April 30th. They are both first time lambers and they both did an excellent job.

Rita's triplets and Leta's ram lamb are growing like weeds. I can't believe they will be 3 weeks old on Saturday.  I don't have a recent photo, they've grown a lot since I took on…
