Heading for Tazewell

Orange Blossom Special
Orange Blossom Special, wool hand spun yarn

It has been a busy winter here at Greenberry House, and I've been spinning hard trying to get ready for the new season.  A highlight of the year for me is Sheep Shearing Days at Thistle Cove Farm, which is coming up on Saturday, April 4, this year.  We'll be heading out early on Saturday morning with the spinning wheel and some lovely hand spun yarns from my wheel, as well as from Thistle Cove Farm and Wild Iris Wool.  I'm excited about starting the festival season in Tazewell with the Lost Arts Guild!

Here are some more baskets to view. Besides baskets I plan to have knitted washclothes, felted or "sweater" soap, alpaca fleece and roving and maybe a felted sheep. The stand holding the baskets was made by Bud Thompson, blacksmith. Not only is he talented with his art, but can tell good stories as he works. So lots of goodies from all crafters to be found. Plan to come and have lots of fun


A sneak preview of some baskets I will have at Sheep shearing day on April 4, 2009 at Thistle Cove Farm. It should be a fun day for all, sheep shearing, good food, arts and crafts of many styles. Plan to come.
