Hi! I’m going to give this blogging thing a try. Maybe it’ll just be a place for me to keep track of my makes; maybe people might like to read it. Who knows? What I can tell you is that I will be posting mainly crafting projects: sewing, knitting, spinning, and maybe even some weaving. In between I might post interesting things I find on the internet, pictures of cats, and adventures in riding horses in the sport of 3-day eventing. The “sheep” of my title refers only to wool and wool products; I don’t have any sheep myself, though I might like to one day. Sometimes I help shear alpacas, though.
Let me introduce you to the other members of the team:
Tigger is 12 years old. He loves catnip, sun spots, sitting under Christmas trees, and snuggling with his sister Maggie. His skills include high-five, coming when called, and getting his human to spoil him.
Maggie is Tigger’s sister. Both of them have lived with me since they were kittens. Maggie is also 12 and loves rubber bands, those little plastic things off the milk jug, and watching birds. Her skills include catching all types of small prey (retired, since she is now an indoor cat) and helping in the sewing room by eating my pattern tissue.
Luna is 14 and only came to me in the last year. She is also known as “Dragon Eyes”, “Grumpy Face”, and “The Cat With The Diamond Collar”. Her skills include snuggling, licking my skin off, and running up very expensive vet bills.
You may see these occasional guest stars as well:
Brutus is my little Shih Tzu / Lhasa Apso. He’s a family dog so he lives with my mom. He loves to snuggle.
Teddy is a Cockapoo / Lhasa Apso. He loves to bark and be Out.
Kalo is my first horse. I don’t own him anymore, but he’s in my avatar and he’s pretty, so you might see some pictures of him.
Peter is not my horse, but I ride him most of the time right now. He’s good at jumping over things, which is handy for 3-day eventing, which involves a lot of running around and jumping over things.
Well, that’s it for introductions. Onward to real content posts!
