|(lambies with their favorite babysitter-good old Strawberry)|
The last group of lambs got separated from their mamas over the weekend and have had their second vaccinations and de-worming medication. They have been in the barn for a few days, with the big barn fan on them, but this morning I let them out into the pasture where they can find a shade tree. It's time to start letting my babies go to new homes, but it is so hard for me! It's part of that cycle of life on the farm that I've come to accept (but still dread).
Last Friday I had an opportunity to take a felting workshop from Nicola Brown, who traveled here all the way from Ireland. Almost everyone there had more experience than me, but I learned a lot and came home with my very own iPad cover, from my very own home grown, hand dyed wool. I am inspired to do some other small projects now. I've heard rumors that Nicola may be coming back to the states in the fall, so I'm hoping to take more classes with her. My friend, Lindy was also there and wrote a wonderful blog post about the workshop and a little adventure that happened the day after the workshop.
I realize that this post is kinda all over the place. When my brain is functioning a little better, I'll have some new knitting books to share. This kind of weather calls for staying inside during the heat of the day, with my knitting and books, of course.
