Can´t trust that day
Monday, Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way
Yes, it was Monday in every sense, but the day has come to a close and things got accomplished. Not in the time that I wanted, but they got accomplished.
The picker is nestled in and we finally started picking wool today. It has been a long time coming. The picker opens up the fibers and makes the carder's job easier. Of course I had to run my own wool through it first, so that is what you see in the photo. This is the collection box the wool is blown into after picking. I just opened the door to snap a pic.
This project has taken over 2 years to complete. We took a lot of baby steps because nothing in this valley happens quickly. There's a lot of growth happening and subsequently a lot of building. Finding help was the hardest part, as I have mentioned before. Doing this step-by-step has allowed me to get acquainted with each step of the process before adding the next one. There's always a silver lining.
