Mama Robin is being loyal to her lone remaining egg. Some kind of critter got into the nest on Sunday night and ate 3 of the 4 pretty blue eggs. I hope she can protect the remaining one so it can become a little birdy and fly away.
Fiber Fiesta up in Greenville and you know I'll be there. Got to see a bunch of folks I haven't seen in quite awhile...at least since last summer's festival season.
I received this pretty yarn from Wild Wool Farm a few days ago. It has pretty little fairy charms spun into it. Anyone have a suggestion what it should be? I'm at a total loss. I need to measure how many yards are there so I can get my head wrapped around a project for it.
Navajo Churro from Washington state. I soaked and scoured the fleece then spent a few minutes combing a few locks to get the hang of how it would need to be processed. Using my dog comb on one lock at a time seems to be the best way. It's a little tricky since it has long and short fibers so if I be sure and comb the tip end first I can keep the lock intact. Below is the little pile-o-locks I managed to comb out last Sunday. It's gonna be a long process.
I've been keeping an eagle eye on Sam since his visit to the vet last Saturday. Seems he has a pretty serious something going on (at the least a severe UTI) but without $300 more in tests there is no blatantly obvious explanation for why he's limping, has a sagging belly and his gums are pale. Could you send some good vibes his way? He's had a rough go his entire life and he tries so hard to be a happy dog at all times.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday to you all from me and The Dogs.
