We finally had a good soaking rain the night before last we needed it and more..  Plants look much happier now . Calling for a chance of frost here tonight, it got cold and windy today.  Its suppose to be a good Memorial Day Weekend so much need yard work will get done on Monday after the parade.  The fields of dandelions are turning while with pieces of fluff flying in the air.  my picking was done at just the right time.

I will be packing up and setting up my booth on Friday looking forward to a great weekend.  It’s such a wonderful show and growing each year.All sorts of demo’s will be going on, lots of entertaining sheep and of course the working sheep dogs.  If you need any type of wool product you can most likely find it here.

PRIMITIVE CAT PIN CUSHIONS

I am working on the Cat Pin Cushions today.  It’s a fun project and they make cute gifts.  They are filled with crushed walnut shells to keep your needles sharp.

I am officially loomless as of yesterday.  I started weaving  taking a 3 year course at Hill Institute in FLorence, Ma. in the early 90’s.  I didn’t know a warp from a weft when I first started the class. I made lots of wonderful things but haven’t woven in over 10 years and it was time for the looms to go.  I will have some of my weaving equipment for sale at the show.

Many thanks for reading my blog today and I hope you have a wonderful day.   Carole
