Wow!! Where has the month gone? The past month has been filled with lots of fibery goodness. I thought I would share some pictures to show you what I mean...
We ended march with teaching a wet felting soap class at our counties 4H project discovery day. It was a great time all the kids had so much fun making their felted soap and it was neat to see all the color combinations they came up with.
Above is the wet felted soap my kiddos made for the demos at project discovery days.
The kids of Flying K Farm have been busy making these fun wet felted jingle balls. They are selling them in our Etsy shop. And if you are interested in making your own we put together a tutorialhere
My friend Marvel and I setup at our very first craft fair at the beginning of April. It was a lot of fun! Looking forward to doing more this year as well as some farmers markets. Stay tuned on where you can find us this summer.
My friends Marvel and Heather (Lahara Lockets) and I put together this basket of goodies for a silent auction to raise money to help rebuildCamden Accessible Playground in Janesville Wisconsin.
This month I dyed a bunch of fiber and made it into some pretty batts. My hubby even helped. He likes to help drum card and is excited for the new picker box he order since he usually helps with the hand picking and that can be a really tedious job.
Have you heard about our Fiber CSA yet? This is one of our boxes going out to one of our lovely share holders. Find out more about our Fiber CSAhere.
Sweet Coco is our newest member of our Fiber Farm. She is an English Angora bunny. We have been told she is a wonderful mother. We will be breeding her soon.
Hope you enjoyed a little peak into our Fun Fiber Filled Month :)
The past week was beautiful with most days reaching 40 and lots of sun. The snow has been melting and filling our ditch, it sounds so peaceful to hear the water running through it like a babbling brook in our front yard although it is only temporary.
The alpacas and llamas are really loving the warmer weather. We opened up the gate between the two girls pastures. (they had been separated for the winter so the thinner girls wouldn't have to fight for grain) The girls were so excited to see each other again they were running back and forth.
With winter easing its grip, maple sap is running. This is our first year tapping our sliver maples with our 4 taps we collected 3 quarts of sap today. Looking forward to learning how to make maple syrup.
Thought I would brighten up
