Dying and Spinning!

This weekend I decided I MUST get back to those things I love, even if it means virtually no sleep. Here is some wonderful wool I got through my Yankee Fiber Friends group. It was white and I used natural dyes to change it to this pretty blue. Then I spun it and used 2 plying techniques. I did a double ply with a majority of it and then I decided to try Navajo plying with about 1/4 of it - mostly because you can do that off one skane and it made it easier on me :) Now I have to decide what to make with it. The rules are that I can add anything to the project EXCEPT more wool. I'm thinking a mini felted purse although i couldn't come close to the beautiful felted purses we sell of Sarah's Satchels...Maybe a hat...

Wow!  Sorry about the loooong delay in posting!  I've been keeping up on the facebook and neglecting the blog!  I am back on track now!  I'm going to post a little bit here and there of the past month.  I will start with our latest bee installation and increasing my earlier hive body.  Jeff and I took classes together this past winter and he came over to help me out.  You can check it out at  The bees are looking good and producing lots of comb and honey!

I've found my newest favorite flower - the Dalhia and bought a few plants to appreciate for a bit until they are sold

Hunter has helped me feed the bees along with Emma and Kaylah and Gracie and Emma!

And the goats continue to grow and grow!!!!
