It's Really Feeling Like Spring
By Pam Blasko | May 12, 2011
Well spring has arrived here officially on the farm. And none to soon for me. We in New England had our fill of winter! This past week I started spinning some wonderful natural colored fleece into yarn. I completed many skeins, washed and set them and moved them into the shop waiting for the right person to come along and fall in love with them.
I also completed a wonderful little shoulder shrug with some hand dyed hot pink yarn. It’s just enough to keep the chill away, worn over the shoulders ending above the elbows. I added a really cool square button which I think was perfect for this little shrug. Great for Spring! It came out just perfect.
I weeded the strawberry patch, and rhubarb patch which took some time, a little here, and a little there over the week and it was done before I knew it.
Looking good! I’ll make strawberry rhubarb jam for the shop in a month or so, as soon as the strawberries come.
I had my little farm helper two days this week, Luke my grandson who knows that chores are never done on the farm. So, he lends a hand driving his tractor filled with weeds and dumping them for me. A great farm hand he makes!
So another week has passed, and all is well here at Dream Come True. Life is good…Have a great week. See you in a week or so! Pam
