SVFF hangover: I sold another fleece!

Tautriadelta, who has been an irregular but loyal customer (if that's a thing) for quite a few years asked me to bring curly white fleeces to SVFF for her to look at and perhaps buy. Of course, that immediately meant that I couldn't find any. All I could find were Pan's long waves. ::sigh:: But we exchanged pleasantries at the show - she and her friend even helped hold goats! - and I told her that she was welcome to come by the farm once I'd found the fleeces for her.

As life typically goes, I found Emma and Elsa's fleeces right as I finished unpacking from the show. I set them aside (and almost lost them again) and let her know that they were unearthed. She came by the house this morning before work and said that Emma's yearling fleece was just what she wanted. I also gave her the bag of Reese's baby tips, which are gorgeous but only 1-2" long. (She said she has a hand-carder that could make magic from Reese's curls.)

Fleece for money: it's a beautiful thing, and a great way to start the day. Also, Tautriadelta likes dogs and it shows, so she is entirely Cleo-approved as well.
