Hug A Sheep Day ~ two days later!
I'm sorry for not posting sooner but I was SO exhausted after preparing for and experiencing the first annual Hug A Sheep day , Open House and Fiber Festival at Bluff Country Shetlands (and Backyard Chickens!) that I got absolutely nothing done yesterday. After sleeping until noon, I got up and fed the animals, sat with the sheep, then sat on the couch, spinning and watching television all night. Good Grief! Imagine if I actually had to WORK. Scary thought...
Hug A Sheep day was FUN!
I met some very nice women and I think may just have begun a new friendship or two. I certainly hope so, anyway.
There was NOT a lot of actual sheep hugging going on. I believe you can see in the above photo, just how excited Alice was about the prospect! It seems the other girls were equally enthused. Although, as you can see in the first picture, Diane did get some lamb kisses from Duke. Everyone came up for cookies but nobody stuck around for hugs.
If you want to see some really cute sheep HUG photos, check out the Crazy Sheep Lady's post at Punkin's Patch. Next year, I will be sure to have a few of the sheep outside of the pasture before guests arrive...
There was some hugging going around:
Bella Kitty came home from hunting to a FAMILY REUNION!
You'll have to come back and spin some more, Diane!
For any of you who saw my needle felted had (in progress) on television last week, here's my middle grandson, Matt, modeling it Saturday:
My friend, Mary, brought all sorts of colored roving and sheets of felt ~ gorgeous stuff!
In spite of the fact that it's not quite finished yet, I have to admit that even I like my needle felted hat! I having fun considering options regarding how to finish it...
