Married to my husband for over 50 years and raising 7 children has given me the time to work with many animals and sewing projects. We live on a mini farm in the Pacific Northwest with just 10 acres and a few fiber animals who now include our Great Pyrenees – another fiber animal.
As the children grew, we spent a lot of time in 4H and added skills.
Having learned to knit as a child, I became interested in spinning some of the fibers grown here. We started with milk goats, then sheep, then added Angora goats and rabbits and even a Jersey milk cow. During this time, we have also been entertained by some non fiber animals – the obligatory chickens, geese, ducks, and turkeys plus alpacas . Now we’re back down to ducks, geese, chickens, Cormo and Shetland sheep, and dogs.
When the children were grown, I learned to quilt. Now I want to work with and share many of the skills I’ve acquired.
Since our diet is plant-based, we are learning to grow much of our food. So from time to time, I’ll be sharing that with you as well.
Also I will be in the near future, I will be adding some pages with photos of our sheep as well as some fleeces for sale and eventually some yarn.
