GO, GO, GO,  ……….CLEAN, ORGANIZE,POLISH,RAKE, THROW,ORGANIZE,HOOK,DYE,QUILT,KNIT,BAKE,FARM ……AND SO IT GOES. LIFE IS GOOD!

WHAT A WONDERFUL LIFE OF CREATIVITY AND CONSTANT LEARNING. I AM STILL WORKING ON “OLD FRIENDS”  BUT GETTING SOME OF THEM FINISHED. I HAVE MY APPLIQUE QUILT READY FOR JUDY TO QUILT.

SPRING CLEANING FINISHED, YARD RAKED, BRANCHES BURNED,WOOD PILE STACKED,CUPBOARDS CLEANED AND PURGED,SWEATER READY TO BE SEWN, SMALL QUILT FINISHED, WOOL DYED, “I LOVE HOME’ RUG FINISHED, UNDIES FOR EMMA TUDOR DOLL, HANDS ON STUDY OF FARMING ! WHAT A WONDERFUL LIFE IT IS!

GARRY AND I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO  TRY OUR HAND AT FARMING, AND LOVE IT DID WE. WE CARED FOR 3 SHEEP, 3 LAMBS AND TINKERBELLE THE GOAT. TINKERBELLE NEEDED TO BE MILKED TWICE A DAY , FILL THE CRIB WITH HAY, FEED THE CHICKENS ETC. WHEN DUTY CALLS YOU WILL BE THERE. IT WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE AND EVEN THE SMALLEST OF LIFE WAS SO AUDIBLE AND VISIBLE. A MOUSE WOULD SCAMPER UNDER FOOT AND SQUEEK WAITING FOR A PIECE OF GRAIN TO FALL. TINKERBELLE KNEW IT WELL AND WAS JUST AS WELCOME. THE BABY LAMBS WOULD STAND UP AGAINST YOUR BACK AS THE MILKING PROCESS WAS TAKING PLACE AND ENJOYED NIBBLING ON MY BOOT STRINGS.

EACH DAY WE MILKED ABOUT 2 1/2 QUARTS OF MILK (SO GOOD WHEN IT IS WARM) SO WE MADE CHEESE. THE SWEETEST I HAVE EVER EATEN. WITH THE NEW HERBS IN MY BEDS, WE TOOK A VARIETY AND THE CHEESE LOGS WERE ROLLED GENTLY INTO THEM FOR A SWEET AND SAVORY SPRING TREAT.

EVEN THE COOL AND RAINY DAYS OF SPRING ARE WELCOME AS I CALL THEM PLAY DAYS IN THE STUDIO, TRYING NEW SWATCHES OF HAND DYED WOOL INTO NEW PROJECTS.

LAST WEEKS STUDENTS CAME WITH QUESTIONS WHICH WE TOOK APART AND FOUND THE ANSWERS. THANK YOU JOANNE FOR QUESTION ON BACKGROUNDS AND MOVEMENT. WE CONCLUDED THAT THE FOREMOST PROTRUDING AREA THAT LEADS THE WAY THROUGH THE WATER, MAKES A RIPPLE EFFECT THAT GIVES THE DIRECTION OF MOVEMENT. FILED AND WILL BE USED FOR FURTHER USE.

WE ALSO HAVE A CHALLENGE OF A TRADING CARD. I HAD VERY GOOD SUCCESS SEVERAL YEARS AGO WITH THIS PROJECT. CARDS CAME FROM B.C. , NOVA SCOTIA, AUSTRALIA AND THE US. WE WILL SEE WHAT SURFACES THIS TIME. IF ANY ONE OUT THERE WOULD LIKE TO JOIN, JUST LET US KNOW HERE !

LOOKING FORWARD  TO A WEEKS STUDY WITH WANDA KERR  AT MAISTEE RUG SCHOOL IN JUNE! SOO MUCH INFORMATION TO BE ABSORBED.

ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL DAY CALLS ME TO A NEW DAY OF DISCOVERY WITH MY EYES WIDE OPEN TO GRASP ALL THAT IT HAS TO OFFER!

“LOOK RIGHT WHERE YOUR LIFE CALLS YOU TODAY AND ENJOY IT’ !

P.S.  HIGH LIZ AND KRIS! THOUGHT OF YOU EVER DAY AND THE JOYS OF BEING A MILK MAID!

CHAT LATER……DeETTA AT THE STUDIO OF FIDDLEHEAD FINERY !
