The Knotty Sheep Shop

Friday, July 30, 2004

I am always on the look out for good fleeces! I dare not think how many pounds of wool I actually purchased this year. But, I feel it is my Patriotic duty not only to keep the economy going - but also to support the small shepherd!

Yesterday, I found a wonderful finn/leicester x as well as a Barbados fleece! I love finn and the Barbados - well, that was a 'must have' purchase as I have never seen one before! But, if you are in the need for fleece - check out CHRISTEN's sheepies . I can't wait for both Ethel & Jason to arrive.

I have also tallied my list of "Reserved" fleeces for the year 2005 - as of this date - I am up to 5. Gee, I wonder how many more I will acquire??

Why the indulgence? Besides the patriotic duty, supporting the small shepherd, I just love fleece! Love creating with it! Love touching it! Love looking at it!! WhEEEE ... I am in fleece heaven! TAG ME ... You are it!

Gee - just when I said that I would post more .... sigh! My life will be taking a new direction as I strive to find a balance in my work, home life & health.  It will be a journey of twists & turns - but I am thinking it will be one of great adventure!    
The Knotty Sheep (please click on the  "Buy Me" link of the  left for my latest creations ... for some reason, I can't insert HTML in this post today!!)  has been growing by leaps & bounds!  YiPpEE!!  And due to my wonderful customers - so far over $182 has been pledged to buy sheep for a deserving family thru Heifer International!!  (Scroll down on this blog, left column for exact figure).   I think giving back is so important  ... The Universe needs to be balanced too.
This summer - I have fallen in love with my local library.  It isn't the most up to date or eye appealing edifice in the world - but the service it provides overwhelms me!   Please support your local library too .... One way I do is donate all my magazines to them instead of putting them in the recycle bin.  They still get recycled (to another reader - hopefully, they will still make it to 'the bin' one day!) and the library earns 25 cents!  Small things do add up!
I have 2 pair of sox on the needles ... hmmmm.... Maybe they are good project for the weekend!
Tag ME ... You are it!
