Thanks for helping

I wanted to start the morning by sorting out a little more of Betsy's fleece so that  I could wash it up for a demonstration I am doing at the Indie Craft Parade.  Betsy is one of the Sofa Sisters, the hugely overweight Border Leicester X Cotswold ewes we acquired last fall.  They have lost weight now and both had beautiful curly fleeces that I've been washing up by the handfuls.  I really need to get through a whole fleece soon but I get distracted playing with all those lovely curls.  Daphne, our little Manx cat, was apparently also intrigued by the beautiful fiber.  And, although she always has a peculiar scowl on her face, Daphne is one of the sweetest and most affectionate outside cats we have.
