...Down a dirt road, past woods and fields sits a humble little farmhouse wearing chippy white paint and a rusty tin roof ~
It's here you'll find me pulling thread and wool through linen and chasing after my kittens…
I collect old & odd things ~ I throw my head back and cackle when I laugh and I see the past through the eye of a needle.
~ I love my life and those I share it with.

Household Chores...

I don't mind doing daily chores or housework...
in fact, there are those that I favor over others.

I don't necessarily enjoy scrubbing the toidy, tub or sinks...
nor am I doing the happy-dance while I clean the kitty boxes (all three of them)
BUT I don't mind dusting ~that just means I've been cutting wool!

and I don't mind doing the wash...
especially when it means folding & fondling wool!!

i love to stack it, by value into tidy piles like this ~
and carry it back into the shop where I'll display it for you to add to your projects.

Yesterday I washed & dried the neautrals ~
all fluffed up and waiting for your hungry hook!
today I'm onto the reds, blacks, browns & blues....
*oh my*

See that wool above?
the wool in the middle/right? THAT is Rebecca's new Boucle' wool
that is reversible and heavenly ~ I saw it on her table at rug fest last weekend
and she assured me I would be taking some home for my customers...
I can't wait to use it myself...it will make for a perfect hooked sheep or three!!!

I will take a picture of all of it displayed in the shop so you can drool, um...
...I mean see it for yourself...
better yet, c'mon in and see it for yourself!
blessings from the farm,

I love the reward of beautiful folded wool to sit and stare at after a "hard" day of washing and tearing and folding! LOL! Do you save the wool lint from the dryer? It makes wonderful stuffing and felting material!!
