The last you, unsuspecting audience, knew I was awaiting a package from New Zealand.
Well, it arrived a couple of weeks back and I haven't had a lot of extra time to play with it! I did share it out to a few lovely folks who were interested and made a couple of new friends in the process from another part of the globe. A win-win situation for sure.
I got the call from Dorothy at the post office that the box was there and I needed to come sign for it. I hopped in the truck, visited with Miss D for awhile, and then brought it home glancing at it anxiously all the way while driving. I opened it on the bed and released it from it's bags to fluff up. I went to grab the camera, and by the time I came back....someone had made herself at home.
Fortunately, she laid in the pile that I was keeping for myself so no one else got cat hair in their sheep fleece.

I put some through the Pat Green triple picker to fluff it up a bit and then onto the Strauch Petite drumcarder.
The finished batt. I've already spun it and it filled up about half a bobbin.
Now, I'm not sure when I'm going to get time to process a few more of these but I'm anxious to get a skein spun up so maybe I'll sneak in a few between making waldorf dolls. I'm right in the middle of holiday doll making which takes precedence at this point! I'll post a picture of the finished yarn when it is done.
