I have my first batch of bunnies for sale and ready to go next week.  They are pedigree English Angora. They make wonderful pets and great for hand spinners for luxurious fiber!  Contact me at tailspinfarm@gmail.com if interested! \

Stay tuned also for the upcoming Drop Spindle Class here at the farm.  You can learn what to do with all that wonderful fiber!

Fiber Stuff on the Farm




Spring is SLOW coming to our neck of the woods.  We did a family road trip today and ran into snow...in mid April.  I can't remember a more miserable spring than this one.  We have had non-stop rain this week.  I know that we are in great need and I try to think ahead to the beautiful gardens and fruit, but it is tough.  We have been trying to keep busy with projects but sometimes that doesn't help either.  I have been keeping busy with our 2 year old foster son and creating when time permits;)  I designed these felted earrings out of angora to go with my necklaces.  They are really fun to make and I am thinking this may make a perfect class here at the farm!  Stay tuned!

We also made the trip to Zeilinger's Fiber Mill in Frankenmuth last week to pick up our finished fiber!  I can't believe how much came back from what we took in.  We got 4 bags of Romney blend and a big bag of pygora from our goats.  I have been spinning when I can and the pygora is beautiful!  I have put some in the etsy shop too.

Anniversary


21 years ago today I married my best friend.  When the priest said through sickness and health, we had no idea what those words would mean 6 months later (the first 5 years of our marriage I escaped death twice)  God has brought us many blessings, and along with them came the hard times too.  This love has not only endured but grown stronger daily.  I am blessed beyond belief, this man makes me laugh daily and that has brought us through a lot.  I can't wait to see what God has in store for our future!
