GETTING ready for SAFF!!

Im packing up and making wonderful santa , witch and snowman felting kits . I have put them together with what I think is a TON of packaging to help make creating these critters a little easier. BUT as we all know, I will be unable to make everyone happy all of the time.. so Im aiming for making most of the ppl happy :)

I have new puppets, and am packing up things for my class, getting little touches to each persons kit . and typing up instructions . Hubbie and I went to make color copies of my instructions and at staples that would have cost me OVER 180$ THAT was much more than I anticipated , so I have decided to buy more color cartridges for my printer and go with that approach . not cheap by any means but it certianly dosent cost me $.50 per copy !!!

My mom and dad will be manning the booth, while Linda and I teach classes, and this year I WILL take pictures of the classes completed work !! We have added so much new stuff to our booth I really hope it is a good event.. christmas and the seasons Hay is riding on it.

We are going to dye our own yarn , proudly spun from my sheep to our items this year, and we are handpainting it tomorrow. We are getting down to the wire, with 2 weeks to go until we leave and still so very much to finish !!!
VERY stressfull!!.
anyway please let me know if you went to saff and what you did and MORE!!!

New creations and events

We completed our lambing and kidding, 4 cashmere babies, one cashgora baby and 20 healthy lambs. sold half of the adult girls to great homes for lambs and fiber makers , and just finished what I will enter at MDS&W this spring. Im actually putting in 2 sculptures, but one is brand new. Here he is , I call him "baby bear"

the Dinosaur puppet was completed late last year and she will also go to MD to compete. I doubt that they will be as warmly appreciated as the bobcat was last year, but I think many of the visitors at MD will like them . after all the goal is to get them "seen"

Here is me hoping you all like them

Lambs kids and sculptures OH my !

So far we have delivered 8 healthy bouncing lovely corriedale lambs .. all sexes but it seems to be swaying in favor of ewe lambs at the moment. I have completed a new sculpture to put in at MDS&W .. heres hoping the work is as appreciated this year as it was last year.

We have also had 4 beautiful cashmere kids. 2 boys and 2 girls .One of the boys is a black buck with a white belly band and is SO CUTE... sadly he will be for sale . Since we own his daddy and not enough room for a second billy.

I completed a new puppet, a filly, that is currently being shown off at my local feed store.

We had a GREAT year at the NC state fair . We took all KINDS of top honors including NC born and bred ewe and NC born and bred reserve !!!

im including a photo of the ewe that took all the great ribbons .
