Wool Trees




I have not had much time for crafting, but 
I did manage to set some time aside to make some Christmas trees.


Supplies: 

tree form (cardboard)
handspun wool yarn
hot glue
decorations

I love the rustic look the handspun yarn gave the trees. 




Other than having to be careful with the hot glue, the project was simple. 

I love crafting, I just wish I had more time for it.

What have you been working on this season?

Farm & Mill Update



It has been a long while since I have posted.

Life has been busy on the farm! I have tried to keep up with social media, but the blog has been on the back burner.

We have more sheep, which means more wool, which means more work!

We also offer wool processing services on the farm. With that and processing our own wool and offering our own wool products, we spend quite a bit of our time in the mill.


It has been quite a ride! We have dreamed about all of this since we moved to the farm over 20 years ago. We feel blessed to be able to do what we love. Spending time, knee deep in dirty wool, is not the most glamorous of jobs, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I still find some time to play with wool...





Hopefully, I will be able to pop in more often to share the happenings on the farm.

But, if you like me find less time for blogging, feel free to stop by and say hello on our Farm Instagram and Facebook Page.

Back to Work

Life has been a little crazy! Family, work, and farm keeps us busy enough, but you throw planning a wedding in there and it makes it even more interesting. 

Fast forward, one of my babies is now married :) and the wedding was wonderful...





  now we are playing catch up around the farm/mill.


I have loads of fleece that need washed...






picked...



carded...



Once the roving is done, it needs to get listed online. I feel months behind! 

The pastures need mowed. 



The hay field is flooded, and we don't even have first cut up yet. 

Lambs are growing like weeds, hard to believe it is time to sort, and start weaning. 



After we catch up, (if we ever do) our barn is getting painted this year! (woo hoo)

What has you busy?
