Time out

While some of you may be thinking that this is now the all Olive, all the time blog, it's really not. It's just that she occupies way too much of my time during the day. In fact, I've pawned her off onto Ivy for part of the day, just so I could walk around without tripping over her. I've been calling this the time-out pen because it gives me just a little time off from being the substitute mom. Besides being pretty cute, Olive has a mouth you wouldn't believe. I expect she can be heard in the next county when she decides she's had enough of time out or is thinking it's meal time!

I've been trying to get myself ready for the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival. I can hardly believe it is nearly here. Way back in the fall when we first started meeting to plan the event, it seemed we had ages to get it all together. Now we are just days away and I'm working myself into panic mode! I think it's going to be a great weekend. We have over 60 vendors coming and I think that's a great turnout for our very first year. I'm hoping for beautiful weather and a big crowd. Are you coming?


  1. I just LOVE the colors you come up with in your dyed fiber! Makes me want to grab them through the computer monitor!

  2. I tried to make Miss Tilly babysit Ewen McTeagle a few years ago and she could get out of the cattle panel pen. Reliably unreliable ;-).
