A before and after, so to speak. I took this picture a couple years ago during shearing season, but I still love how it shows the difference!
Yes indeed, they have started selling the roving! How fun is that?? This bag full of fluff is $8.00.
Finally I found what I was looking for...in the middle, on the bottom...
Isn't it gorgeous??? I don't usually go for pinks and such, but it was so pretty I couldn't resist! I also thought the gentle shift in colors might be more forgiving with my inexperienced hands. I bought it from Claw Tree Fibers, who also happens to be in Michigan. It shipped this morning, so I hope it will be waiting for me in the next day or so. Come on, Mr. Mailman, make my day!
So while this may sound like a shameless plug for the Greenfield Village store, I am doing it entirely on my own. I had so much fun poking around here again, and seeing what new goodies and new displays they had. And also to say that you never know where you will find just what you were looking for. After all, who would think to look for a drop spindle at a museum store? I love surprises like that.
And next time, I am bringing home some of the fresh made fudge. Being a Michigan girl, we take fudge very seriously here, and I have to say, I think it rivals the fudge in Frankenmuth, or dare I say it? Yes, even Mackinac. It's that good. I've been good so far, but sooner rather than later a bar of Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel will be coming home with me...and maybe something for the rest of the family too. :)
Have a great day!
