The weather’s been keeping us outside, planting, raking, digging, and enjoying the sun and the dirt. When we’re not outside, there’s been lots and lots of crafting going on.
Bert, Nan, Flossie, and Freddie hang out in our bedroom so I get to see them all the time, and they make me smile.
Today was Sheep Day at Soule Homestead. From the minute we got there Dagny had her eye on two women who were spinning. After a quick picnic we headed over to talk with them. Within minutes Dagny was happily spinning.
(I’ve got to give Rowan credit for the second picture, which I love!)
I think the juxtaposition of Julian’s very cool, studded, patch-covered jacket and the old-fashioned art of spinning is neat.
The women were great. They were excited by Dagny’s excitement. The woman in the picture runs spinning classes, which Dagny’s going to check out. The other woman gave Dagny a gift – some beautiful fleece. It was a really amazing experience and lots of fun. I love to be around people who are doing something they love and want to share it.
Those spinning photos are absolutely lovely! In all my years growing up in MA I never heard of this farm, but it sounds really cool. We’ll be in MA this summer visiting family, wonder if I can sneak in a visit??
