I've been wanting to make a video of a sheep giving birth for a couple of years. I bought Julia a "Flip Camera" for a Christmas gift knowing I would have as much fun with it as she would!
Two weekends ago we were lucky enough to witness several sheep giving birth. This video is of an older cross-bred Romney ewe giving birth to a single, giant lamb. The birth took place over about 30 minutes but I've edited it down for you. Enjoy our little slice of rural life and the amazingness of Mother Nature.
To see the video, go here.
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
