Ezekiel 34: 23, 24
And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.
And I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it.

Well, I did tell my buddy Gloria that I would try and make a post which included video. We'll see how this works...if it does. Here goes...
It worked!! Thank you, thank you Gloria!!
I just also wanted to add more to my previous post about spinning. I found this young woman's video and I have to say she is living the life I dream of! She offers how to videos on everything I have ever wanted to learn to do and then some! She has some really great videos. I just have to find the time to watch them all. Kinda like all the movie videos we've bought which are still sealed and unopened! What can I say?
But before I took the class, we walked around a bit. We got to enjoy a little bit of fiddle music from this fine ensemble. Very talented group of musicians! It was a beautiful brisk cool day, perfect for enjoying their serenade.
Had to check in on the furry alpacas and llamas. It was fun feeding them their hay.
There was such a beautiful array of fiber and yarn available. This year I opted to buy only fiber. Also made sure I bought some beautiful raw mohair. It's so soft and shiny. I'll have to work a little harder to spin it, but I've done it before. Drat! I should have bought the carders while I was there. Now I'll have to search for them on Ebay.I even bought some flax strick! I'll be sure to have fun spinning some linen yarn.
This young lady was in my spinning class. She sat right across from me. Her wheel is a "Kromski Symphony". Isn't it just a beautiful classic spinning wheel? I liked the lazy kate on the chair next to her.
There was just so much to see, I'm certain I missed some things. This man's wheels were very pricey! His store also makes some excellent wooden spindles. I liked how he was dressed. Very Williamsburg colonial.
And here is the class I was in. The instructor covered all the basics. She has an online site called The Pearly Queen. Great teacher with so much patience!

Seeing as how our family is expecting a new Grandbaby next year, I thought I'd try and enter myself. I would love to specify colors, but since we don't know the gender of the baby just yet, I'd say any colors which work for either a boy or a girl. Maybe yellow or aqua shades and even brown would work too!
AND if that wasn't enough, Katie from See Katie Sew
is also having a giveaway. She will send one lucky winner some amazing 'designer' fabric from designers such as Amy Butler,Sandi Henderson, and Erin McMorris! It's beautiful fabric, and since we can never have too much of it, I thought I'd enter as well. Both of these giveaways are ending soon, so hurry over and find out all the details!Wishing all good luck!
