Litters in the barn -babies everywhere!

Here's some of the presents Santa brought to me -a lovely litter of French angoras and a fat and chubby bunch of American Chinchillas. And of course my own baby snuggled safe and warm with her buddy Dutch guarding her.

HUGS all

Stopped by a friends today

She has taken up rug hooking - I want her to teach me or in the spirit of the season let me take this spectacular rug home with me ;)
Its beautiful in its simplicity - I hate to think how many hours of time this took for her to do it though.

Happy solstice!~~

The food is put away for the winter,
the crops are set aside to feed us,
the cattle are come down from their fields,
and the sheep are in from the pasture.
The land is cold, the sea is stormy, the sky is gray.
The nights are dark, but we have our family,
kin and clan around the hearth,
staying warm in the midst of darkness,
our spirit and love a flame
a beacon burning brightly
in the night.

Sunday spinning

This week in the mail was a secret Santa present this week from somebody who knows I love to spin. Today I spun up the lovely superwash merino that was in the box :)   4 ounces now waiting to be washed and the knit up.

And brought me sparkly little satin angora babies all tucked down in a warm little nest -there are 9 to first time mommy Arwen and daddy Twister. :)

Gratification as a fibre artist :)

I attended the amazing and fun Plowshares show in Syracuse this past weekend. Beside having great food and music all weekend long I got to hang out with Maggie -aka Wonder Woman!!
We even got time to spin together !! Me on my spindle and her on her beautiful Robin wheel.
 We rocked it all weekend long and both of us were very proud of our accomplishments of the weekend :) The best compliment I got paid was a lady looking over one of my angora yarn skeins for $80 and telling me "its worth that for your time and skill alone" -boy does that make a spinner feel good !!!!
HUGs all I'm off to play on the spinning wheel again!
