Though winter is on the way out, I still went ahead and made more felted wool mittens for my grandsons. Next winter, Jaxon will need some, but for now, the three oldest are ready for those late snowstorms and possible sledding outings that still may be in our future!
As a reminder, here are the first two little pairs of mittens I made…

Last call for questions… post them here!
We attended Vernon’s uncle’s birthday party this afternoon. It was Uncle George’s 100th birthday! That was quite the deal… the governor of Wyoming said so!… and it was lots of fun visiting with everyone.
Spring has hit hard here… every little slope, drainage, gully, wash, draw, ravine, and rut has water pouring down it. Enough that the ice that was just going out of the creek has created ice jams and flooded low parts along the creek. We don’t have too much trouble up here, but farther downstream and even the Big Horn River near Worland has some pretty good flooding going on.
Victoria and the twins have headed back home… We wore those little boys out, playing in the snow and mud and chasing bubbles and using sidewalk chalk on the dry parts of the concrete and driving various pieces of equipment and chasing dogs and chickens and visiting baby calves and cleaning pens and spreading straw and…
What a wonderful visit we had!
Time for you to send me questions and I’ll provide some answers… Post in the comment section!
It was another busy day at the library… lots of kids for story time and classes from the school… plus all the adults! It was actually up in the 50˚s today, so many people were brushing off those wintertime blues.
Yesterday, my fever started returning for my studio… time to get back to it! I went picking through piles, because ranchers never throw away something they might reuse someday… I was looking for shelving/bracket items, whatever I could repurpose for my artistic wall.
Instead, I stumbled across this!
A vintage stop sign! I loved it instantly, and though it wasn’t a shelf (and I’d hate to bend it to make it into one) I do think this belongs in my studio somewhere! Ideas???
Time for questions so I can answer them soon! Post ‘em in the comment section!
