Saturday at Jacob's Reward

JoJo and Lil' D went with me to Jacob's Reward farm yesterday. We had a fabulous day. I have been Cindy's friend since she first purchased her farm and I must say that she and her family have done a wonderful job. It was so much fun to go over and see all that she has accomplished, since I moved 45 miles away 2 years ago.

This is the sign in table. Cindy had made drop spindles and had buttons with her logo and Susie's logo on them. The girls love the sheep.

Susie was there from Martha's Vineyard Farm and Hudson Valley Fiber Farm. She gave a demo on dying yarn and that is always a great topic to learn more about.

JoJo did get a little tired during the day, so she sat for a few moments on my bobbin for my Ashford Kiwi. I have been spinning on my roving that I had dyed at the Fancy Fibers Retreat. I am almost finished plying and when done I will post the pictures here on the blog.

At the end of the day, Sierra, had the best catch of all. Farm fresh eggs.


  1. Glad you had a nice day :) Lucky Sienna!

  2. Love the new blog Joanne ;) I wondered if it was Cindy's farm you were visiting...wish I could have been there, too!

  3. It WAS a great day, Joanne! Thanks so much for making the drive over. I haven't had that many people over to the farm at once before and I wondered how it would go. But it came off without a hitch and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Didn't you love Susie? All the ladies were so fun to hang out with. You can bet we'll be doing this again!

  4. What a fun day it was!!! Sweet pictures, and thanks for driving, Joanne! Did you see us on Susie's blog?
