Just returning from a rather long blog hiatus to share a slice of autumn morning with my flock. In the seeming blur of summer and early fall, the lambs have grown and the flock has burgeoned to 100 - filling our pastures. When not changing sheep coats and checking fence lines, and filling water troughs, my summer days were hugely occupied by teaching fiber art classes and writing a book on hand dyeing. I am now in the thick of fall sheep & wool festivals, which means many hours in the dye studio. Time outside with my sheep helps me stay grounded.
