I am thankful for my healthy sheep flock and for the people who purchased sheep and lambs from me this year. I'm happy to find good homes for them. I am grateful for my beautiful quartet of Saxony ducks (and all the delicious ducks in the freezer).
Anoka Fiber Works, a hat class in December and felted house slippers/boots in January. See their website for specifics and to sign up.
I still have 5 spaces left in the Teapot Class with Pam MacGregor, if you're interested in attending, let me know and I will send you all the details. I've created a page for the class here on the blog so it will be easy to find.
Red Oak Mason, my Bluefaced Leicester ram, came out of the breeding pen yesterday. Lambing will be in April 2014 if all goes as planned. There should be several purebred Bluefaced Leicester lambs, some Shetland Mule lambs (1/2 BFL and 1/2 Shetland), and some 3/4 BFL lambs.
My sweet little Finn/Shetland lambs got their coats on this weekend. I can't wait to work with their fleeces. But most exciting will be the fleece from this sweet little girl, she's 67% Wensleydale and 33% BFL.
