14" on the front deck

The upcoming forecast looks great for this week! Especially since I am delivering mail on Tuesday and Thursday.
There was 14" of snow on the front deck, according to the yard stick. I have taken some pictures that I will post in another post.

1" snow

Mouse prints on the deck.

Mouse prints.

This is what 1st caught my eye that something had
been in the yard that didn't belong there.

I wear a size 9 shoe.
This print is almost half my foot size./

Young bear print?

'I see snow!! I am not letting my girls out!'

And it keeps coming...

Precautionary/preparedness actions,
A winter storm watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet, or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.


Friday, October 28th, and I have awaken to find 1" of snow on the ground! I knew I saw Juncos last week, but I kept hoping that they were actually Phoebes...but the sun will be out today and it will be in the 40's.

And then Weatherbug states this!!
Winter storm watch in effect from Saturday evening through Sunday morning.

I guess I will be reskirting and rebagging like a crazy person after work today!

Vermont Sheep & Wool festival 2011

 This year's festival was great!! Despite the rain on Saturday, sales were fairly brisk. I think it helps us a lot that we sell ALL of our roving by the ounce. It makes life easier, and less expensive, for the needlefelters.
 Hurricane Irene's damage was evident, but the fairgrounds and most of the roads in were spared!

Coming up on the fairgrounds.


And a tent that is filling up fast.

An empty tent.

 We had to put the Aerostar out to pasture this spring and knew the truck could not hold all of the product that the van had. We were able to score a horse trailer from a fellow spinner. Now I will be able to have another 'vehicle' that I can leave product in all summer and unload as needed!! Life is great. Thank you Judy! As you can see below, we had it filled all the way to the top, and every compartment as well. It was nice to not have to take apart my wire racks to fit in the truck.

Jerry unloading the trailer. We did this Friday before the rain.

The horse trailer was filled to the top.

More 'stuff' came on Sunday.

Need fleece? Or roving? We have plenty to sell. And lots of differnet breeds.

It was nice to be able to open these on Sunday.

A whole lot of Icelandic fleeces.

By Sunday it cleared enough to open up the tent and the product.

We are just a little crowded when it rains...

The Pavillion.

We are in Overhang #1. Right in front.

My best half!

I have been spinning this since farmer's market in September and now it is done!!
The center is Maggie, my original Dorset/Romney, and the outer is a blend of Maggie and Angora.

 Since the blend is a little bright, I am plying it with Maggie. I will take pictures and post of the skein after it has been washed.

I will post the Wool Arts Tour pictures when my camera comes back home and I get it downloaded.
