Hosting a Farm Tour

Yesterday we had a picnic at our farm for a bunch of sheep people. We enjoyed good food and good conversation. After the meal, The Farmer led those who were interested on a tour of the farm. He started with my little workshop. Saturday night, the kids and I put out yarn and roving on the shelves. We hung woven rugs on the rug rack. We filled a basket with wool cat toys. The crocheted purses were on display, as well as the mattress topper and comforter. We laid out a bunch of woolen socks on a table. And I started a roving rug on the new loom.


Boy, was that loom a hit! People enjoyed looking at all the things we'd made from our wool, but they literally crowded around the loom where I was weaving. Fun!


Here's a photo of the loom in the new workshop. (For a short history of this loom, read the post titled "A Home for Mrs. T's Loom".)
