12 Days of Christmas

a weaver's Christmas wreath?

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me:

12 sheep a baa-ing

11 shearers shearing

10 carders carding

9 spinners spinning

8 dyers dyeing

7 winders winding

6 weavers weaving

5 golden fleece....

4 empty looms

3 shuttles

2 bobbins full

And a warping board with a new warp!

To all my fibre friends - I wish you the very best for the holiday and the coming year - may your looms never be empty, your stash always full and your mistakes all fixable.

(just 'cos the verification word was boawe - and one of my sheep is more boo-ing than baa-ing)
merry x-mas!
