Jessie came to visit this weekend, and on Saturday went went to a Sheep Shearing Festival! It was in Waltham at Gore Place. It was a beautiful day- quite warm. I’m sure the sheep were quite happy to be getting sheared!
The festival was a ton of fun! We got to see some shearing…
It’s amazing how the sheep just lets herself be wrestled around.
That’s from just that one sheep
The handed out pieces of fleece to the kids
We watched some Morris Dancing…
Jessie decided we wanted to be Morris Dancing so we could wear these costumes.
AND when we went back to the yarn tent, and there were some Morris Dancers giving us a little show.
And of course, I bought some yarn…
(from this big pile of hand-dyed yarn, I did not buy the big pile of yarn- eventhough I would have liked to)
This is the pile of yarn I did buy. mmmmm All from Minds Eye Yarns in Porter Square.
