All our dogs love to hang out with my grandchildren , and all my grandchildren love dogs. My canine companions enrich my life, entertain me, and I hope I give to them even a fraction of the love and devotion they give to me. My dogs are a blessing to me and I am thankful for them. ( Picture is of Whimsy and one of our grandsons, daughter's youngest son. )

13 years after they were married God gave them their miracle baby, a son.
Happy son with his wife and son. And yes, our son is a "worker man" !
Happy birthday son, we love you soooooooooo much !

sheared, skirted , washed, and picked*. I decided after the holidays I would spend some time renewing my enthusiasm for my wool crafting by taking time away from all but the needed aspects of keeping a home and simply enjoy playing with wool.
Looks like cotton candy , doesn't it ? This is some exotic wool blends I have had stashed away blended with my Jacob Sheep wool. I had fun picking and choosing from my stash of wool to blend colors and fibers I thought might culminate in some interesting yarns.
The desired end product of my wool blending is wool batts ( wool carded into batts, like batting you might buy for quilts, only wool ) I can spin into yarn I might then weave into fabric.
I ran the wool through my carder a few times. Isn't it lovely ?
I had a few other colors of exotic fiber to combine with my Jacob wool too. This reminds me of tropical fruit and Hawaiian sunsets.
