A Very Pretty And Special Thing

Annette Browning of Kentucky Blue Fiber Co. had the most beautiful shawl on display at the Kentucky Wool Festival this past fall.  It was very unique, hand crafted and I couldn't keep my eyes off it.  At the end of the weekend I asked her if she would be interested in making a custom shawl for me.  From someone very special.  She said yes.  It arrived the other day.






 
Thank you Annette.  There are no words.  It's beyond beautiful.

For more information and a link to Annette's blog...

What a lovely and feminine shawl, just as Miss Ewenice was a lovely and refined lady sheep. A beautiful memento that you can keep forever.

Hi Sara
I wish I had that bag of wool and I would give it back to you - such a beautiful tea jerking story.
I can see how you get so attached to these wonderful sheep - they all have such individual personalities - just like us.
The photo of Hank washing Marcel's face in an earlier post - is sheer bliss - if I hadn't seen it I wouldn't have believed it......

I'm your newest follower and I'll be back for lots more sheepy tales!

I do hope you'll pop over and see me too and enter my Giveaway!
hugs
Shane ♥
