Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

It's finally here! The musket lamb's fleece roving I sent off to be processed at Stonehedge Fiber Mill. It's gorgeous and very, very soft. I'm afraid the pictures are not going to do it justice. It is lighter than I expected, but has a definite brownish cast to it. Oatmeal would be a good description I reckon. Unfortunately the pictures make it look greyer than it actually is. Anyway, I love it and I have two whole pounds of the lovely stuff... now where can I hide it??
Ha--I'm finding myself suddenly very possessive of all this gorgeous roving.. and I don't even spin. I just sold all of the black Shetland roving, and while thrilled, I am somewhat unexpectedly bereft about it. Hmm... maybe I do have a problem.
