Fall is a happy, sad time here at Fire and Fluff.All the lovely little lambs are now big enough to go to new homes. Most will leave for other fiber oriented flocks, a few will stay to grow our numbers, but there are always the very few that end up in the freezer.

Too much fun to have with fibre, glass and animals to stop and talk about what use to be! Anyhow for those in the know I have sheep, yes real ones, and this year for the first time in 12 years of keeping them, I ended up with a houselamb.Miss Adventure she is called on her official paperwork, we call her Missy or Little Girl most of the time. Anyway Missy's mom did not produce enough milk to support her solo, first time mo... » Read More
