The Silent Auction at the library is creeping up on me… Father Christmas remains unfinished…
I felt the need to complete *something*… so I rummaged through my piles downstairs… and came up with this for supplies.
Two hours later… a mitten decoration emerges from the mess…
(for those of you curious to see what else we have at our Silent Auction, you can search for Ten Sleep Bulletin Board on Facebook. I’ll be posting pics throughout the weekend…)
We’ve shipped some high quality bred heifers to Riverton, Wyoming. These are the ones that didn’t meet our rules for being replacement heifers… but, my, there’s some nice looking heifers in the bunch!
There’s also some aged cows…
Consider this your notice for the sale on Friday!
The day dawned crisp at 4 degrees…
They were quickly gathered from around my house and put in the corral by the barn…
The guys looked chilly despite being all bundled up!
Where was I?
Inside. Supervising the next generation in his watching… he’ll be out there, chilly with the rest of them, soon enough!
We brag about English Shepherds having an off switch… While the cows were gathered from around my house, where was Dally? Just outside my dining room window where she could see me, but watch them work cattle. Interested, but not ON! Good girl, Dally!
Slight breeze handing us a wind chill of -5.
Slick roads and ground blizzards.
Of course, we went to town today… why wouldn’t we?
I’m working on an item for our library Silent Auction next week.
I chose to use wool, and decided to copy this great vintage Father Christmas card.
I know, why not start with a box? Or an apple? NOOOOOO…
I have to start with a PERSON for heaven’s sake!
Well, here it is SO FAR!
There’s lots to work on… and who knows if I’ll get it done by the 9th or not!
Why, oh why, do I do this?
It’s too far along for me to quit now, but I sure wish I’d needle felted a box instead!
