Sojourner's Weekend Stay with Longdraw James at Ashenflock Farm.

Posted by Evanita Montalvo on

Sojourner spent the weekend with James as her Migration entry point to the UK. The following is from James's journal pages.

Next stop for Sojourner will be with Rachel S - Suffolk, UK. We are expecting her to arrive later this week.

Wishing you all Happy Spinning and Bird Watching!

"Hi! This is James, also known as "Longdrawjames". I am the UK stop off for Sojourner before she embarks on her trip around the UK!

I live in Surrey near Sevenoaks on my best friend's sheep farm, so naturally I had to see what the sheep thought of Sojourner!

The Romney lamb was impressed and approving...

As usual, Maxwell the Suri Alpaca was not as approving!

For my addition to the community bobbin I chose to add 5g Silver Wensleydale combed top. This is top we have combed from our own sheep fleeces, so it is quintessential to me! I can't wait to see everyone else's additions!

Note the gray at this end of the community bobbin.

I have loved getting to know Sojourner (even just for a few days), and I hope you all will too!!

Happy Spinning!
