When We Last Saw Our Hero

He was being carried around at the fiber festival.  Yes, just one week ago, I could still carry him around. 


There's not much room to sit on the dog bed with him anymore :-o.  I could still pick him up on Saturday, but by Monday evening it was all over.  I've never had a lamb grow so fast.  


"She says that like it's a bad thing."


No, it's (mostly, sniff sniff) not, but I think it's probably about time you moved out of the house and off the porch, big fat lambie.


"What?!?"


"It's not very nice to say things like that."


"Think of it as there's just a lot more of me to love!"

Sorry for the delay announcing winners for the festival giveaway.  City Boy and Janbaby were here all weekend and Jan and I were too busy beating Tim and Jeff in Spades to remember we had other things to do.  Ah, good times ;-D.

Since we had three winning cute lambies in the running, I let Random.org draw three winners - Yarnkettle, Small Farm Girl and Katie.  Suess has a little something from the Ballyhoo Fiber Emporium for Yarnkettle and Bullwinkle and 20 will be sending some new Lamb Camp cards to Small Farm Girl and Katie.  Please drop me an email with your mailing addresses :-).

I'm working to get the Farm Shop updated with all the new Punkin's Patch goodies and a few fleeces still waiting to be skirted.  We'll do a couple more giveaways this week to make that all more fun :-D.

Ah, they all grow up. He will soon be with all his older friends in the flock and next year will, no doubt, present you with a large and beautiful fleece. I look forward to the shop updates.

You know...... He was named after a moose.... He's living up to your expectations !

Don't overdo it...how embarrassing to have to explain to your doctor that you hurt your back lifting a lamb! ������

That's what I was thinking! :D

YarnKettle said...

I do so love his helicopter ears. Such emotion and expression! I felt like we really were having a conversation.

You sure do grow up those lambies real good.

So, is Bullwinkle ready to move to the barn? Who's going to be his nanny sheep?

Congrats on the winners! So, who won, Suess or Bullwinkle? :)

Bullwinkle says you should just go talk to Betsy! ;-D

At this point I'm thinking Uncle Willard and Ewen McTeagle...

My ~ has BW grown! He is one BIG 7 week old-ish lambie, but...
:::Say... wHAt! Barn? I am still a lambie!:::

I have a feeling BW is gonna be a porch lambie for just a little longer... it's good for a growin' lamb to be right by his mom's side! Good for mom, too :-)

Great photos, Sara!

Give our favorite lamb a... ))Lamb♡Hug((

Perfect. If you were a sheep, you would deserve some major crunchies for that quip. Maybe Bullwinkle's mum will send you a giftee ;) for that brilliant remark. Go ahead. Ask for one. Don't be (dare I say it?) baahshful.

Cute expressions and captions! He sure is growing fast.
