We had a wonderful weekend mostly at home, and mostly working with our hands.
In our small kitchen garden at home, I planted a bit of lettuce and some snap peas.
Saturday afternoon we tilled our large market garden, it is about 50' x 40'. This will be our fourth year of growing here and the soil is finally looking like it should over most of it. While Mike was tilling, I raked and pulled out large clumps of weeds, etc..
We did lots of creating as well.
I finally finished this special order for a customer. The wool yarn used was all hand dyed. She wanted a set of rainbow gnomes in subtle shades.
Gathered scraps of fabric, chose yellows and blues and made this scrap fabric wreath, inspired by GardenMama.
Our neighbor raises sheep organically for meat and we were given seven bags of wool! (Certified organic as well.)
So... I could use some help with the best/easiest/simplest ways to wash and pick this.
This is a picture of our first batch that I washed and it still has to be picked through.
Finally, the girls helped me set up our Easter shelf.
Happy Monday and Happy Spring.
Warm wishes and joy, Tonya
