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 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,
