I'm On It!

Several years ago I sold my Ashford Table Loom on eBay. I should never have done that, but I was trying to finance an eight harness Baby Mac and thought that was the logical thing to do. I miss that loom :-(. Little did I know as we were trying to arrange the shipping (she lives in Alaska!) that she would become one of my favorite people and here we are again, now shipping a spinning wheel back and forth. She has asked me to paint all sorts of fiber animals around the wheel and treadle of her Ashford Traditional.

Okay, sounds fun.

"I'll trade you native Alaska qiviut blended with silk."

I'm on it!

Let me just tell you, this stuff is so soft that you can't really even feel it when you touch it. It feels like air...but softer.

It's even softer than the boy wonder.

But he's cuter ;-).

Keebler may not like touching things, but he likes to taste! I don't think he even has teeth yet, does he? Too cute!

I don't know if I've seen a cuter lamb! What a little blessing. I've really enjoyed your Keebler pics and stories. My lap is aching for an orphan to nap on it. There is no comparable experience, is there?

Could you make a Video of Keebler?
He is a little Sunshine boy.

Carolina Trekker said...

OOps. I see you have made TWO videos of Keebler. Ignore my request. Does he race?
That would be cute. Thanks for shareing him!

The friendships we make via our sheep and fiber addictions are often so special.

Oh yes, WAY cuter!

Too bad we don't live closer - I have an Ashford table loom I'd SO trade you for that little guy! Though I doubt you'd ever part with such CUTENESS! ;)

We also have Jacobs. Aren't they wonderful!

Have a great day.
