and a few peeps too!!
Last year due to the wild fires and the wild life that was seeking other ground I lost my flock of chickens. Super sad! I decided to wait until this spring to replace them which is what we are in the process of doing. These are Copper Marans which lay beautiful dark brown eggs. Today I pick up a few more that lay blue and green eggs so that when they breed they make olive eggs!!! I know I just can’t resist the whole color thing no matter what.
These little babies are so sweet and cuddly. And….they love wool!! Who knew?!
The one in the right was obviously over come with her love or wool and let’s be real warmth that she just fell right to sleep!! So cute. When I brought them into the barn yesterday it was all ooohs and ahhhs and squeals of delight. I think after the winter we’ve had here these babies are going to be some serious therapy for us all. I am just going to wanr you now there are going to be tons of pictures!! So be prepared.
It’s time to change up the colors. It’s actually past time but I wanted to make sure we were at least close to being caught up on orders before we made this change. This week we will be caught up!! At least that is the plan. I swear that if I was just starting a business and experienced the 6 to 8 months we’ve just had I would consider maybe not. However, I have been doing this a very very long time and am going with the whole do your very best and this too shall pass!!
So here’s a lit of the colorways that I put up this morning and ones I took down.

We will be closing down sock club sign-ups next Friday. So if you have been waiting until the very last moment we are there.
Maryland Sheep and Wool is quickly approaching and boy do we have an exciting surprise for you!! I will fill you in on the details next week. Yes, I am taunting you maybe just a wee bit! Meanwhile this is the artwork they have chosen for the year so this is what our colorway will be based on. Actually this year there will be this special colorway and at least one Maryland themed one. I am from Maryland so am embracing my roots a bit. If you have thoughts I would love to hear them!!
Okay I am sure I am forgetting things but I know the newsletter has left and I want this up since I have not posted in awhile.
I took a few days off last week and part of this week and went to the home of my heart for some much needed regrouping and honestly sleeping.

Have a lovely weekend!!
