Random Update

Gosh, it's been a while. Pretty busy around here lately - I've been out and about too much to blog! I'll summarize the highlights...First, just to follow up from the last post, I did finish the back of Laura's sweater for the "Olympics" and now have a bit of the front done as well. We did our first Sheep Shearing Day on March 11 and had 200 people visit and learn about fiber/fiber arts (and see our sheep get shorn, poor guys!); Sugaring Off walks on March 25 drew in about 140 people, too. I'm really starting to notice that after about 2 1/2 years, people are catching on to our family programming at the museum.

I broke down and ordered and Ashford Joy from Copper Moose...according to UPS tracking it will be here tomorrow. They'd better be right! (I couldn't stand banging up my Traditional as I haul it around with me).

Still haven't warped the loom.

Still haven't started my dress for my sister's wedding.

But I did block out my Pi Shawl (will try to post a picture soon).

I went to Plimoth Plantation this weekend and also watched harbor seals sunning themselves in the warm spring sun in Manomet.

Speaking of which - IT'S SPRING!! Right now I'm all excited about my garden - I have most seeds, still need to order tomato and pepper seeds. Poplar trees are in flower, bulbs are pushing their way up, water is running, robins are out in the fields, red-wing blackbirds are at the pond, woodcocks are saying "peent, peent" in the evening. When I was in Manomet I heard peepers and woodfrogs....could be a Big Night soon!
