It's tradition. Every Mother's Day we head on out to the fair grounds and stomp through the cool wind and mud at Shepherd's Harvest, our area's local fiber festival. Animals, live music, demos and classes, textiles, and sweet yarn as far as the eye can see.....
One of my favorite parts of the festival is picking out a beautiful sheep and watching the farmers shear the fleece for me to take home! I was only planning on watching this year, since I'm still working on a dreamy gray and brown Jacob along with an Icelandic fleece I purchased last year, so I waited until the end of the day to venture over to their barn. I watched Jody's skirting demonstration, played with all the fiber laying around, talked tales of spinning, and came home with this giant fleece that's a BFL mix.
I also pulled the Mother's Day card to get my boys to smile all at the same time for the camera. Thanks guys!
I hope you all had a beautiful Mother's Day weekend~
