I'm such a sucker for a cute face, Aydin comes in from the rain and waits for me to dry him off, he is such a card. I have been working like crazy to get ready for the market on Saturday, The picture I posted (not of Aydin hahaha) is sample of the new rug warp, It is the first time I have tried this technique but it is going really well. I am impressed with the look it gives the rugs. I also have lucked in to some wonderful hand dyed sock yarn from my oh so talented friend Heidi Wulfrat from London Wul Fibre Studio. This will definetly create a focal point of interest to my table. I am also going to take my spinning wheel and fleece from my own sheep to help create even more interest, a girl has to do what a girl has to do... Well back to the loom I go, four mats done one to go.

On the advice of a few great friends I am getting my act together and attend the Elmsdale farm market with my handmade fibre goods next weekend. I was hoping not to have to go that route by I think I am actually looking forward to some human contact. When you work at home you tend not to have to much of that. I do love being here with my animals, and my son but some real out side contact is a necessity from time to time. Barb was here yesterday and we were working on some design for my business cards, that was really exciting, it makes me feel like I am moving forward. On the farm side of news, I am sorry to say that we lost our little bottle lamb, he was such a little trooper. He will be missed by all. Well hihohiho it's off to work I go. Thanks to all who gave me their kind words of encouragement in the past few days. It really means a great deal to me.

It is hard to put into words what this actually does for my heart. Is there any doubt about how cute this is, Aydin the 40lb puppy is taking care of everyone, at times he and the little orphan lamb seem inseparable, but that only last until something more exciting comes up, like Owen play in the water, that is way more interesting and fun for the moment. This puppy has such a connection with children it is totally amazing to watch. He is amazingly gentle for such a large pup. I seem to be at a lose for words today but I wanted everyone to have a little peek at what is going on here on the farm. It is just simply wonderful!!!!
