Sunday seems to be family day here and today was no exception. Daughter Nikki brought the two grand daughters up from Owosso to meet the sheep. Meredith (8) is on the left giving Danny some 'nilla cookies, and Elizabeth (5) is treating Jenny. The sheep are really husband's project (although I get the fleeces) and he wants to restrict their treats 'cause they are a little plump. But he is a total push over when the girls are around.
I'm just about finished with my Journey to a Shawl project and will be posting it soon. Lots of spinning going on because I have a custom order for Jessica in New York. She would like as much handspun of white Ariana as I can spin. Yippee! but I have to spin something else in between or it feels like work and I get cranky.

Sheepies are so cute. Those granddaughters are adorable, what a treat and a joy!!! I agree with you, one year I made some adorable rag dolls with bloomers and pinafores and yarn hair then I went out into the woods and got grape vine and made some about tire size, in diameter, wreaths. Decorated the wreath with baby's breath and home dried apples and then placed the doll in the middle. I got an order for 15 of the bugger. The order came in Thanksgiving weekend and she wanted them by Dec 15th. By the time I got those things finished I never wanted to see another. Ya gotta pace yourself and have some fun in between.
