Angora Shetland Yarn

I got my first yarn back from the mill this week. It is 50% Black Angora and 50% Shetland from Under the Son Farm I have come to Love the mill I send all my roving to, I had called and asked about doing this yarn before sending it in and was told it would be 8-12 weeks which was really amazing so I thought. They got the package the first part of June I want to say the 3rd so I was expecting it back the end of July or Aug but I got it back on June 22nd! Granted it was a small run so I could see how everything worked out but I am very very impressed! Just in case your wondering I send all my stuff to Stonehedge Fiber Mill I have 18 250 yard sports weight skeins that are for sale at $21 a skein plus shipping.

You can email me at God Bless hope your staying cool in this heat!

I have found myself struggling with my sin (we all have a sin or sins in our lives we find hard to deal with)lately, thinking it would be ok to just give in no one has to know. HOW SILLY is that? I mean honestly! God is omnipresent which means is everywhere and there are some more of those omni words I can not totally remember right now that means He sees everything and knows everything and hears everything. We have angles with us to keep watch over us and keep us safe, so we may think we are getting away with things but who are we really fooling? We are only justifying what we want, to make our choices seem ok to US. The truth is sin is sin no matter how big or how small is all sin and after what Jesus done for us on the cross how pathetic is it when we fall or dive into our sin? We have a way out, we have a reason to turn out backs. 1 Corinthians 10:13 "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is commion to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye my be able to bear it." That is our way out our easy way to deal with our sin turn it over to God who is there and is willing to hold your head on His shoulders to walk with you to make a way through your hard times.

I found this while looking at another website and felt God speaking to me while reading it. He was showing me how silly it is to have the sin in my life that I have. All I need to do is hand it over to Him and let Him show me the way out! God Bless.

Hoosier Hills Fiber Fest

This weekend was the Hoosier Hills Fiber Fest in Franklin IN where Joyce and I shared a booth. I ended up doing a little better than I thought but sales were still a little low. Of course I ended up spending more than I made but it was a worth while investment. I picked up a suri llama fleece, traded some angora yarn for a llama fleece, traded Joyce some roving for some llama and wool roving. I ended up with lots of llama LOL Thats great since llama is one of my favorite fibers though. The best part of my weekend was getting to see my friend Kathy Obrakta out and about who I have not been able to see much since she got sick. I believe the good Lord is really helping take care of Kathy very well.

This guy was giving demos on blade shearing sheep.

Little lambs in a pen.

Two little lambs in my dads dog box in the back of his truck?

Meredith in the front and Kristina behind all settled in a small pen in my barn for a couple days while they adjust to the new surroundings. They are 50% Cormo 25% Shetland and 25% Finn. The start of my spinners flock! Once these girls are old enough to breed I plan to get a Cormo Ram and a Cormo BL X colored ewe. I called and asked Dad for permission for a lamb since I would have to depend on him to come get it and take it home for me and he talked me into 2 lambs. Whoever thought my own Dad would be a bad influence on me? I tell you God really blessed me with wonderful parents that are very supportive and understanding of all my hobbies. God bless and hope you had a blessed weekend as well!

The quail have grown so fast it is hard to imagine they just hatched in April. Tonight while I was out feeding I found the first quail egg in the cage. Here are a couple of pics sorry they are so dark.

This second pic is the quail egg beside a chicken egg so you can see the difference in the 2. Most people know how small a baby chicken is so now you can imagine how tiny a baby quail is.

Tomorrow is the Hoosier Hills Fiber Fest, Joyce and I will be sharing a booth. I will try to get some pics but I am not very good at remembering to take them. God Bless hope you enjoy your weekend.
