Can you see me now???
A few weeks ago we had a few close calls with some nasty weather. Luckily we only lost one gigantic tree in the little sheep pasture and one tree in the little pasture next to the house!
This is what happened when I asked for a little help in the fiber palace the other day? Really sheep? Sigh…
What do Pluckyfluff, Madwool and a junk in the trunk show have in common???
ME! I never EVER travel far from my sheep but soon I will fly away to meet my friends Lexi (Pluckyfluff) and Dayna (MadWool) in person! IN CONNECTICUT! We’ve known each other for a very, very long time and I absolutely cannot wait to hug them up! (Just don’t tell my sheep. They will want to come with me and their manners leave a little to be desired at times! They do like a good party!).
June 7 & 8 will be the third annual Camp Pluckyfluff held at Madison Wool. It promises to be good fun, good wool and lots to learn from Lexi Boeger. I can’t get the hang of spinning coils. That is my mission, PLEASE Lexi, teach me to spin coils?!
Our hostess with the mostest is Dayna Mankowski of Madison Wool, in conjunction with Laura Lyons of Wildwood Farm in Madison CT. Plan on spinning fantastic yarn at a beautiful farm with an artist studio setting!
This is going to be a fun event! Lexi is planning on techniques that YOU want to learn, to individualize the camp for those who have participated before. Beginners are more than welcome, Lexi is happy to show you the basics as well as more advanced techniques!
And a ‘Junk in the Trunk Show’?? What the ?? Well, that will be my take on a trunk show. Friday, June 6, 2014, from 11 AM to 6 PM you can meet up with me at Dayna’s gorgeous shop. I’ll be bringing yarn, fiber and the sheep have a bunch of really neat painted drop spindles they are sending along.
It would be awesome to meet all of you in person and if you can swing it, there are just a few spots left in Lexi’s class. C’mon, if I can fly from WI to CT, you can too right? And yes, I will fly on a plane. The sheep think I should just fly out on my broom. Really? Telling my secrets? They’re just mad because they can’t come along. I promised them special surprises from CT if they can manage to behave for hubby Jim. I hear sheep whispering out there so I know the stinkers are already plotting a little mischief to keep Jim on his toes.
Check out all the info at the links below, if you have any questions give Dayna a call at 203-245-5921

Marshall (top photo) and Theo (bottom photo) are our sweet Corriedale sheep. They love Fruit Loops OR Lifesavers that LOOK like Fruit Loops- and playing tag with the other sheep.
They both have next to the skin soft wool that is springy and perfect for any project. The roving was carded by our friends at Morro Fleece Works into pin-drafted roving with the colors side by side. This would be fun to work with as the natural colors or it soaks up dye like a sponge.
Have some fun and don’t miss out! The roving is available for $3 per ounce on our website Homestead Wool & Gift Farm.
Happy Wednesday from Theo and Marshall!
