‘Tis the season!

Ahhhh! July is here!
Time for a little vacation!
For me July represents the end of the season!
Lambs have been born.
Sheep have been shorn.
Fences have been mended.
And now it’s time to sit down and relax on the terrace with a cool drink while I watch my little flock graze happily under the apple trees. It’s also a time of reflection, a time to take stock of the past year. But it’s not just the end of one year ... it’s the beginning of a new year. The shepherd in me is already thinking about next year’s lambs! The spinner in me is just now starting to look at my woolly harvest : oiling up the spinning wheel and dreaming up knitting projects for the months to come. I’m really excited about the possibilities! I’m thinking about socks and sweaters in lovely natural colors and brightly dyed wool. Can’t wait to get started!
