Just when you thought winter would never end, it suddenly does, then doesn’t, then does….
Cold and rainy right now, by I am actually on top of the gardening tasks! Tomorrow the sheep get sheared, and I will be up to my elbows in fleeces to skirt, wash, pick, card and spin, then dye, or dye then spin. Or maybe just leave natural, especially Mousses’ fleece, an awesome dark chocolate brown.
Our local farmer’s market starts tomorrow too. The Mission Falls Market in St. Ignatius, Montana. Sadly, I may actually miss the opening market depending on what time the shearer can get here, the weather and Lord knows what else. But I am ready for it – *she says cautiously.
So, hoorah! Welcome spring to Northwestern Montana. We have been waiting for you!
