    Ordered a 12×25 foot billboard tarp to use as a leanto/awning. Will install over ram area and see how it goes up and works. If it goes well, I'll add one for the horse area and two over the ewe areas of the barn!

    Accidentally spun half of a bobbin backwards when plying...Left it like that, may fix it one day...
    Leftover 17 rolags I spun and set as a single.

    Turned Tatiana's into rolags after 2 failed wet felting sheets. Will spin these up next.

    These are the last 2017 Billy rolags, the ones in the better style. Will spin these after Tatiana.
    Need to finish that rolag attached to the drop spindle at some point...
