Not quite two years ago we acquired Betsy and Bitsy, ewe sisters from up in North Carolina. I found them on craigslist, the woman was seemingly losing her farm and the fact that they were Border Leicester/Cotswold crosses seemed intriguing as I just knew they'd have pretty fleece. They were grossly overweight from being fed mostly grain. We brought them home, put them on nice pasture on a hillside for lots of exercise and cut out their grain. They have thrived They really are dolls and I adore their lovely curly fleece. I'd dyed a bucket load of it in the winter but had gotten busy and set it aside. I fluffed some up yesterday.

I got the word today that I have been accepted as a vendor at Indie Craft Parade! This will be my 3rd year as a vendor and it is a remarkable weekend. It is a lot of fun and also adds a nice bit of money to help with the winter feed bills. Ironically, I had just walked in from starting a few more dye vats when I checked e-mail and got the great news. So here are some "in process" dye pictures. And it looks like I'd best get a bit more in process to be ready for September!
