"Ba ba black sheep, have you any wool?"

"Yes sir, yes sir, 8 bags full!"
Remember the unsheared sheep at the orchard last week? Well, I called to inquire about the price of their wool and they offered 3 bags for free! So, my fellow historic village tour guide, Aileen, and I visited Terhune on sheep shearing day (I had never seen sheep shearing (say that 3x fast) before. It was quite and experience) and left with two whole white fleeces and 1/2 of a black fleece! We plan to wash it (cus dat's jus nasty!) and spin it into yarn on a wheel or drop spindle for knitting. We may even dye it with homegrown berries! Yes, while dressed like rural antebellum women.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
