Home From the Fair

I had a great time and a successful sale at Bingeman's Saturday. Many thanks to the organizers of the Knitters' Fair as it was a pleasant experience for us as vendors and thanks to the many people who stopped by to chat and to purchase yarns and rovings from me. It makes my day worthwhile.

A Dog's Life

Here is Nick, the great hairy beast. I had a master groomer come over to help me get his coat in order. Of course he was having none of it: no stranger was touching him, but she showed me what to do and Nick loves me to brush him. I'm off to the grooming store this week to get the necessary tools.Kayla doesn't enjoy brushing at all and thinks she looks fine just the way she is.
Rueben loves any kind of attention, if you can get him to hold still. He will have a beautiful thick cost in just a couple of months
Feykir and Trix don't need much grooming at all and both find it hard to sit still. I was really surprised that Feykir didn't need much brushing with his thick long coat, but he is almost self care and doesn't mat
