Presenting Aurora

It’s been nearly seven months since I’ve posted here. I apologize for the long hiatus. Last year was very challenging for me and I found many of my creative outlets simply too much to maintain.

However, this morning when I opened my Facebook page–I found this little piece of adorableness (is that a word? if not, it should be!) waiting to make me smile. She is absolutely lovely from her hand-dyed hair to her tiny little toes. Tara spent many hours making Aurora—and it shows!  This doll is perfect in every way.  Aurora is definitely one of my favorite things.

I knew when I read Tara’s post that I had to share it with all of you.






Prayers, please…

I swore I’d never use my blogs to raise money…but that was then…and this is now. My beloved son-in-law was in a tragic accident last weekend.

The picture is of Roy and Sophie, his just-turned-one-year-old granddaughter.

We ask for your positive thoughts and prayers for his recovery. Thank you.

Temporary Hiatus

due toI’m sorry that I haven’t posted here for such a long time. Health issues have reduced my energy levels and I’ve had to focus on things that must be done, relegating the tasks that I can put off to a back burner. I ask your understanding and want to let you know that I’ll be back to regular posts as soon as I am able.

Don’t give up on me…


Last month I lost a dear furry-friend. Baxter was a puppy when I first met him. He lived a long and full life that ended with a sudden stroke. I’m glad that his final moments were brief and that he was with the people who loved him.

I miss him…..this is my tribute to “B” ~~~






B was “one of my favorite things”

I know that this blog is supposed to be about my sheep, my farm, and my weaving, but I’ll get back to those soon enough. It was fun to have a vacation and to share my photos. My latest reason to neglect my business is that we welcomed a new member of the family and I had to go to Texas to do it. DSC_6246I won’t share my family’s personal moments and info here, but surely I can share a few photos of my granddaughter…and I know that there will be more from here on out.2014072995225432
