Today’s prompt: think about and event you attended and loved, writing in your own voice tell us how you would feel if it was cancelled.
I love going to Shepherds Harvest in Minnesota. The event is held every year on Mother’s Day weekend. Mostly I have loved going because it involves many of the things I love, my friends, yarn and new patterns, fleece, spinning wheels, spinning fiber, and fiber animals.
I met the folks who raised my angora goats at Shepherds Harvest and one year brought home two llamas. I loved how even though it could be sunny and warm outside when you stepped into the pole sheds it would be chilly and slightly damp after the long winter making you want to curl up in all that fiber.
I loved running my fingers through the array of soft choices, rubbing them against my cheek and smelling them with people who knew why you were doing that and didn’t give you any funny looks for doing so.
I loved walking in the animal barns seeing all the babies and their momma’s dreaming about what kind of animals I could add to my mixture.
I will miss Shepherds Harvest for all of the above reasons, it makes me sad to think that I can no longer enjoy that experience, but mostly it makes me miss my friends and the dream that I had for our hobby farm. Good bye Shepherds Harvest you will be missed.
Till next time craft on!
