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.
Meet Flash, Shetland/Finn cross ram lamb out of River Oaks Godiva. He's such a sweetie, very friendly.
 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.

Luna's ram lamb, his name is Comet, he's a BFL/Finn cross and I'm really looking forward to his fleece.

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 one below.
Front to back, Letla's lamb Kahn (banded), Rita's triplets, Rocky, Ruby and Rosie.  All are Bluefaced Leicester/Finn and should have wonderful fleece.

I will be offering all these lambs for sale at weaning in late June (all except for Comet and Ruby or Rosie). I'm making up a sales list which will include all my boys  (except Comet), even the ever-so-friendly with fabulous fleece, Mr. Socks.  Four Shetland ewes are due to lamb after Memorial Day, so there should be more lambs on the list too.


It's really hard to keep focused and get all the details arranged for this weekend, so I've got to keep going here. I know I'll have a good time this weekend and be totally exhausted by Sunday night.  Hope to see you ar Shepherd's Harvest!
