Lamb sitting and Spinning blue


I’d like to introduce you to Juliette, a little French lamb.  She will be spending a couple weeks here or until her shepherdess can take her back to her own pasture, which thankfully was missed by the fires, but has tons of smoke.

The lovely blue roving has been spun and the next step will be to ply it.  Since I don’t have a project in mind, I’m not sure if I’ll go ahead and ply it now so it will be ready when needed or just put it away now until I need it.  Isn’t that how ufos are created?


My prayer is for the firefighters in Eastern Washington and elsewhere that they will be kept safe during these trying times.   The last news I heard was they may have lost 5100 homes, but can’t go into the area and see for sure.   Winds were bad there yesterday.  Today was calmer.   Firefighters from Australia and New Zealand are joining in the fight as well as the National Guard.

    And volunteers! I sure wish we’d get some rain with no lightning and no wind.

      I have two friends that live over there. I haven’t heard anything from the other one, and I think she lives near Twisp. My cousins lives in Spokane and they’re okay. Their daughter lives farther north and has been evacuated. Thinks she can go back in a week, if her place is still there. Living in the more uninhabited places is really nice until something like this happens. The lady whose sheep I have, said that people have done so much logging and then the grasses come up and that’s why the fires can spread like this. Interestingly enough her report is that it only hits the front row of the orchards. So all the rest of the fruit is untouched.
