Four legged friends ~

Last fall on my way to work, this handsome guy took his time walking across the road.  He was beautiful and since he lives here is very used to making himself at home.




My small farm is just enough to keep be busy all the time.  The nice thing is that I have company with me all the time if outside working on things.   The Alpacas are settled in well.  Yahtzee (llama) the patriarch of the farm has accepted them into his life.  At 20 years old, that can be a great accomplishment.

This winter has been brutal across the United States and even colder here than normal.  We have extreme summers and winters here in The Dalles, Oregon, but this year really cold and lots of snow. I  Love the snow and so do the animals.

Time to play catch up!

It has been almost a year since my last post and yes, shame on me.   Life gets too busy some time.  I can't wait until retirement, but from what I  hear, life will be even busier.  But busy with my weaving and fiber animals.

Here is a variety of pictures of things that have been in progress over this last year.


  •  Hannah Blanket / Throw - Tuna Wool - Double Weave



  • Lunatic Fringe - napkins, dishtowel and place mat project - Plain Weave and Rep Weave




  • Pendleton - Tuna Wool scarf with Rayon bumpy fun yarn for white stripe.



  • Bockens Linen - Shadow Weave table runner



  • Krokbragd Rug / Wall Hanging 





I was able to sneak up to the ANWG Conference this year.  My mini-education/vacation in Bellingham, Washington.  It was a perfect time of year to go and had a great time with 500+ other fiber enthusiasts.  I learned a lot and got very inspired.
