Spring in November!

It’s true.  This week the weather has been glorious with temperatures reaching into the 70’s. No one is complaining – not Jim or I or our animals!

Oh – we have more animals – 8 alpacas have been added to our flock.

Bacca, Casper, Richard, Sapphron, Daisy, Tansy, Oreo, and Reese – we need to get name tags!  They join Dorito, M&M and Telemark.  Sadly we lost Dazzle a bit ago.  We have LOTS of fiber!

IMG_1578Sadly, our dear, Zeke – the original yellow dog is slowing down greatly.  He still manages to get down to the barn, but often gets confused on the way back.  He is one great dog!

ZekeandAlphHope your fall is as beautiful as ours!


Last Show of 2014!

Jim and I had a grand time at the Craft Vermont, 2014 show sponsored by Vermont Hand Crafters. It was held the weekend before thanksgiving at the Sheraton in Burlington. Amazing artists all around – and stupendous customers! Can’t wait ’til next year!

End of Summer…

…and we know what that means!  Getting ready for Sheep and Wool Festivals and Craft Shows! Jim has been making mountains of wood shavings.  I can see 4 brand new completed yarn bowls from where I am sitting.  Gorgeous!  And I have been dying lots of yarn in new colors!  I am loving the Intense Iris! – not sure there will be any left to sell.  Sorry![portfolio_slideshow id=211]

Finger Lakes…Here We Come!

The truck is packed with every possible bit of fiber and wood.  Snacks for the ride and cell phones charged.  I think we are ready to head to Hemlock, NY for the Finger Lakes Fiber festival.  This is a great show nestled in the countryside of New York state!  Love being there.  I am actually looking forward to sitting and spinning all day on Saturday and Sunday!


Jim has been turning wood non-stop for the last two weeks.  There are several beautiful yarn bowls packed and ready to share!


Next weekend…Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival in Tunbridge, VT – another great show!  http://vtsheepandwoolfest.com/
