Little Sheep and Harvest Fest
~~~A Miniature Flock Of Sheep~~~~~~Here are some of the sheep I make to sell at bazaars. They are made the way the Moravians used to make them for their creches. They are clay wrapped in the wool fleece from my Jacob sheep. Here they are compared in size to some apples.~~~Each sheep is an individual, and they seem to take on personality as they get their little smiles. They look like a real flock when placed in a group on my table. ~~~Oh no !!!! Miss Marple, they are not mice. Gotta rescue my flock. I am taking them, some hand spun yarn, batts and rovings of my wool, and locker hooked saddle pads to the Harvest fest at our Lacamas Community Club. The harvest Fest is an annual fall celebration of local farms . An opportunity for the farms to show and sell a bit of what they produce. I was going to bring some lambs, but the weather forecast is for stormy weather and I do not think they want lambs inside where they are serving breakfast and lunch to the community. ~~~This is a busy month, a Harvest fest, a wedding, a bazaar, family events, and I still have apples to preserve as applesauce and pie filling, and a lot more things to make for the Christmas Bazaars. ~~~Do YOU have any local festivals or bazaars that are important to you and your community ? Are you involved in any of these events ? Just wondering....Have a great weekend !
~~~Fest : derived from"Festival :a season devoted periodically to some form of entertainment;" Funk and Wagnalls New Standard Dictionary~~~
