I went to a local fiber festival last month. While I was there I purchased a fleece from an Icelandic sheep. The fleece was about $30.00 and will make lots and lots of yarn for many projects.

The kids all got a chance to play together and snack midway. Three new mamas and babes joined us! I counted 15 parents and 14 kids for a total of 29 participants along with 5 pups.…
