Too, Too Long

It has been forever since I have posted anything.  Well, I ton has happened.  The biggest is that Bella, one of our show girls, had nine puppies.
This is when they were just about a week old.  The puppies were a lot of fun but were also a ton of work.  All the puppies found wonderful homes including the black puppy with the blue collar in the picture.  He ended up here with us and is affectionately called Dutch.

Here he is today playing with the Dead Squirrel Toy

[1]: Dutch is such a sweet boy.  He's the first lovey Standard Poodle that we have ever had.  He is such a wonderful addition to the family.

We also have a new member of the family.
This is my new spinning wheel.  I'm really interested in the process of going from fleece to a finished sweater.  I attempted spinning the other night and it was extremely frightening.  However, I'm not going to give up.  I am signed up for a class starting at the beginning of June.

My knitting is progressing well.  Hopefully, I will have time to post some pictures tomorrow.


  1. don't give up the spinning... just a little bit of practice and it just starts to happen. Before you know it you'll be spinning like a pro. And congrats on the puppies ;)

  2. Affection must run in the litter, Nina is such a cuddler! She's sleeping through the night and so far only one pee accident in the house.

    Enjoy spinning class, it's really addictive.

  3. do stick with the spinning,this is a beautiful wheel. Just take your time and resist the temptation to treadle too fast! Make sure you keep her well oiled as well.
