While she worked on hers, I worked on a gift for a jacob breeder that helped me out by housing and transporting some of our lambs after they traveled from Oregon to Indiana. I hope he likes it!
We didn't have a lot of time, so we did a LOT of multi-tasking. We dyed fiber using my new pot and the results were fun.
She dyed some of her washed jacob fiber with a beautiful teal color. The carded results are going to be so pretty!
We also washed fiber. I found this great tub out in my barn! We also found out that my fiber shop has a small water heater. Wet felting and washing fiber takes more hot water then it had! So we moved the washing tub to behind the house.
She brought me some of the wool wash that she uses as a hostess gift and I am really impressed. It has a nice soft euctalyptus scent and did a fabulous job! I washed Wrangler's fleece first and it doesn't have any ram smell left and the white is white!
The weather was beautiful on Friday and the fleeces dried pretty fast.
We finished making our pillows and she learned how to blanket stitch - my favorite!
She sat down and used my spinning wheel (I hope she posts some of her pictures) we laughed quite a bit :) Then she tried out my drum carder.
It was so much fun and very motivating! I have been washing, carding, and spinning since she left. Who wants to visit next ;)
