New rescue bunnies

Two lovely little bunnies who were an impulse purchase that quickly became a problem for their owners - they didn't realize they would have to groom them and clean the cages as often as they need.  They are suppose to be both girls but I'll let them settle in and then check.  They are pet store bunnies so one never know exactly what breed they are but they will make some great 4-H rabbits if they have the personalities to make them good pets.

Teaching spinning

I LOVE drop spindling and I love corrupting (I mean teaching) it to others :) Today 5 brave souls joined me as I got to do what I love to do spin :)  They all walked away very happy with their new knowledge and their ability to make yarn!

 And their teacher was thrilled to have been able to share her love of fibre and spinning. One of the lovely ladies was going home to her grandmother's spinning wheel ready to give it a spin :)

Still spinning

Working on this lovely yellow mohair blend from Maggie's Farm :) I'm hoping to start plying it this week and then see how much yardage there is - I have an idea in mind but it needs a HUGE amount of yardage so we'll see. It makes me happy to spin it though.

Turn the page....

Another year, another blank page to start a new chapter in our lives. A day to realize that no matter what is going on it is the little things that really matter.
A hug from my children, a wagging dogs tail, a smiling face at work these all mean more to me than anything else.
Wishing you all a Blessed and Happy 2012 -may only good things come your way but know that if there is darkness I'm there for you :)
