First day of the New Year

Today is the start of a brand new year. So I thought why not finally take the plunge and start a blog as well. Something new for me anyway. So this is my blog. A place where I can share my thoughts on my sheep, spinning, knitting, and quilting. Not to mention all the wonderful projects I hope to enjoy throughout the year.

I spent the last couple of hours of the old year by working on a new quilt. Brought the new year in the same way....sewing!! I made a Sudoku quilt. Very easy and fun quilt to make. Just need to add borders before it will be ready for layering and quilting. I already know how it will be machine quilted. Nothing fancy. Keeping it simple. This is a quilt meant to be used.

The morning was busy. It got cold last night which meant all water containers outside were frozen solid. So after filling feeders with hay, it was time to bust ice and drag water. Right now there are two large water containers to fill and one small one. I have a small flock of Shetland sheep....which I simply adore. And they adore me. They are always happy to see me. This morning was no different. After filling their feeder I was surrounded by several sheep all wanting pets and hugs. Can't think of a better way to start the day.


  1. Oh it looks so cold where you are! I hope the sheep dont suffer too much in the cold.. Of course, they are wearing a woollen coat! :O) Its hot hot hot here in Australia.. Congratulations on starting your blog!

  2. Lissa,
    The sheep do just fine with the cold and the snow. Wish I did as well. :) The Shetlands are double-coated and their fleeces are very long this time of year. Lots of snuggly warm insulation.

    Thank you for visiting my blog. Stay cool!
