I have a quarter sheep fleece. It was free, which is good, as I'm not sure I'd buy one that had such a large amount of crusty bits in addition to regular dirt and filth. My mom wants to try out some needle-felting, and I have been tempted to try out a drop-spindle for awhile, so here's our chance to do so without investment other than time and effort. Now that it's relatively clean, it's nice and soft and fluffy (except the more determined crusty bits, which will probably just get picked out for one more soak, then tossed if there's no improvement).
My oldest turns four tomorrow, and we had a lovely backyard party last weekend.
I'm so excited to see what this year holds for her. She's still growing like a weed, is starting to puzzle out reading, writing, and very basic adding and subtracting. She loves baking, and helped make her cake. My eldest is very imaginative and always comes up with novel games to play with her sister, such as building a dam in the living room out of whatever is handy. It's a hoot to see the two of them in their raincoats trying to rescue one half of the living room, even if it does make quite a mess.
Have a great week!
