Wow what a day! I got all my wool weighed labeled and boxed up and ready. I put a coat of wax on the little cup pin keepers and felted the tops on two more. Did a littl more work on the crows and pumpkins. I also waxed the bowl, the vase and new spindles Glen made today. I have to tell you how much I love them and all the stuff he has been making. I showed him a picture of an ancient carved spindle and he just made in his shop for me. I waxed it all up to show the beautiful grain and it's drying over night. I can't wait to try the spindle tomorrow. I did a little test earlier and it spins beautifully. Tomorrow I'll try it with wool roving!
I still have more stuff to prepare but I'm feeling good about it. Tomorrow I will work on some more felting and running another fleece through the picker. I still have to bag up some special wool for dolly hair and pack up some felting needles into kits. This is going to be so much fun! Pictures hopefully tomorrow.
