Why So Quiet?

Boudreaux's fleece is still out on the hammock "dryer", but he's the last one. Everyone else is washed and picked and ready to go to the mill. The washing machine and I are both ready for a day off! I have a few fleeces left from last year, so in all, there are 28 bags of wool in this room. The picture really does not do it justice. I just couldn't stand back far enough to include them all.



Whew!

This year I'm having some of our wool processed into quilt batting. There is a really nice quilt shop in town, Zeppelin Threads, who wants to carry locally grown products, and she is also working on an actual quilt of our painted barn quilt. Won't it be nice to snuggle under the Frog Pond stuffed full of Peabody wool?

Oh wow, wool batting! I've never seen such here in our area but I've always wanted some.

Is there going to be a pattern available for the Frog Pond Quilt? I'd buy it if there was, that thing is amazing!
