HAZEL AND MRS. BROW’S NEW HOME – DROP SPINDLE CLASS AT SHEEP AND SHAWL-SLIP COVER MADE INTO A DOOR CURTAIN

26 11 2013

HELLO

It’s a wintery morning here at the farm.  Snow is sticking to the ground and the windows are frosted.  One chicken waterer was frozen.  Luckily the sheeps water is heated to just above freezing  and is perfect.

Making a Slip Cover into a Door Curtain

Tomorrow I am starting on the last door curtain project.  The house is old no matter what I do other than get new doors which are very expensive its hard to keep the drafts out.  Heavy curtains have proved so useful on all the other doors.  While looking for material I found this wonderful slip cover and I do have a matching sofa cover somewhere.

 So today I will make the curtain for the door  and when I find the sofa cover I will make a pair of heavy curtains for the window and the computer room will be cozy.

SHEEP AND SHAWL DROP SPINDLE CLASS

Patti joined Moira and Amy this week and caught up quickly, I will show her how to ply after the holiday.  Moira and Amy really got the swing of doing it and tried silk and Sheltand wool.  They plyed their yarn.  SHeep and Shawl may offer a dye class in June and they plan to come.  Its always a thrill for me to teach a drop spindle class.  When I teach drop spindling I feel like I am passing the torch onto another and they will inspire someone else to learn.  Making socks, mittens or sweaters to be able to keep oneself and ones family warm is a wonderful thing.

Mrs. Brown and Hazel’s new home.

I found just the right type of cage for the chickens today.  And tonight it was moved upstairs in the small bedroom.  But it has wheels and can be moved anywhere.  I have them in it and they seem content.  Now I can get the wood stove going again and get the cat carriers put away.
