Sheperding at Bear Creek
The sheep have been getting whiny about the grass supply in their current pasture. They were treated to a new pasture today that is green with vegetation for them to enjoy. The only problem being it is not fenced for sheep, just cows, so they will have to behave and respect the cow fence!! The other two sheep pastures are currently trying to replenish what the sheep have eaten and not too quickly either. Some more rain would sure help speed up the process. Meanwhile the sheep will have to behave until the grass starts to grow in their own pastures.

Hi, Teresa. I am ecstatic: I can hardly believe it, but my moose has just been delivered, by the Canada Post truck on a Sunday (which they must do only pre-Christmas, I guess) and he is BEYOND wonderful! Now we can both rest easy about the deliver, plus I will be able to include him in my Christmas decor (and all year round, too, of course)! Your photos on Etsy are lovely, but still the moose in real life is even more exquisite. And you did not need to worry at all about antler, ear or leg disarray: I can ...

So how do these soft fluffy fibers turn into something as solid and dense as felt fabric? Wool fibers have tiny crimps all along their length. This is what allows them to wrap around each other and hold tight during spinning in order to make yarn. These crimps also allow them to become hopelessly tangled among each other in order to create felt. The tricky part is getting it to turn into the shape you want! There are 2 methods that can be used to create felt. Wet felting, and needle felting. You may already be familiar with wet felting, if you ...
