FLEECE TO SHAWL AT THE MASSACHUSETTS SHEEP AND WOOL FESTIVAL

The show is looking for more teams to compete in the Sheep to Shawl event.  You would need a weaver and 3 spinners.  It’s a fun event and not too late to enter.  contact Susan at Svanb7323S@aol.com for more information.  This is a celebration year for the show.  Its been going strong for 40 years.  Come and help us celebrate.  Always Memorial Day weekend (Saturday and Sunday) at beautiful Cummington, Massachusetts.

WORKING ON THE FRONT PORCH

Chris and I replaced the floor boards on the front porch They weren’t as bad as was previously thought.

 I will paint the entire porch floor in June sometime. Yesterday the sheep area was finally finished.  Its been quite a week full of catching up on projects.  Thanks to Chris I am almost done.

WORKMEN

The workmen are almost done with the cement work.  I now have a railing on the front stairs.

 The entire house will have to be painted again starting sometime this summer.  I know that with all the cracks filled in, the house will be warmer.  Another huge project done.

MINNIE

I am happy to report that Minnie is back to her old self.  She is eating well and active.  Thanks for all your well wishes.  I have done some research on the internet and want to find out more about homeopathy.  That may be a way to go with the disease.

It’s going to be in the 60’s today and the sun is out, I am so glad spring has finally come.  The vet is coming to check on Elliott who has a rash.  I think it may be from the dampness in the barn.  I hope its nothing more.  He is feeling fine and frisky so that is a good sign.  I had to put off his shearing which was supposed to be today.  We will do it another time. Have a wonderful day and many thanks for reading my blog.  Carole

I always try to get there for at least one of the days. I would be interested in getting back into it though I haven’t woven in several years now, I’d be pretty rusty. And I would love to get back into meeting with the Woolgatherers. Let me know if anything transpires.
Hope all is well at your place.
Renee
