This is unbelievable!!





This picture says it all, look at my poor rose!! Thank-goodness we got all the vegetables out of the garden when we did, and the forecast for this week is not good either although some of the snow melted as the sun came out for a bit but now the wind has been blowing like crazy and I do not know whether it was rain or snow hitting the windows. Just took the dog out and it must have been rain as I do not see any new snow, who knows by morning what we will have. please let us get some warmer weather before winter really sets in as there still is yard work to get done. We also had a baby llama born just before the snow and the rest of the girls are still waiting, probably for better weather....I hope. Got a picture of the new baby in the barn this afternoon, and by the look of her ears and her curly fibre her father just might be the Suri Alpaca boy...hmmmmm I see we will have to have her blood typed to make sure...forgot to say it was another girl!! Am really hoping for all girls this year. The little alpaca baby is running races with her mother these days, does not take them long to get going. Have to think of some names pretty soon. Got the cold room all sorted out so I have room for the potatoes but did not get them brought in...ran out of day as usual. I got the silk I spun plied and steamed and it turned out great, so hopefully it works with the llama/bamboo yarn for the knitted scarf. Well am off to bed and hope I do not wake up to more snow in the morning!!

SNOW???? Just where are you? Its cold here in Wisconsin, and they're calling for flurries on sunday-but not as much as you-I like the look of the stuff-but hate driving in it to work every day. Makes me want to knit up some warm fuzzies...

hi-thanks for stopping by my blog-the hide was a very old mink stole-some pieces just disinigrated in my hands-hopefully the bears will hold together.
Not looking forward to winter-we've had some bad ones the last few years-I'm always driving in a snowstorm it seems-I like your blog name-I'm hoping to have purple fingers soon-gonna dye some fiber with red cabbage "juice"--wish me luck!
