|More beautiful wool =Reason to smile
Love our new shearer, David Keir and I highly recommend him for Shetland sheep. He understands the "rise" in Shetlands, he's gentle, calm and my fleeces aren't full of second cuts!!!!
I admit that this week has had some trials that I could have done without. Without trials, we can't fully appreciate some of the little jewels in life, nor can we fully appreciate the priceless jems...Friends & loved ones.

Just when I think I'm having a horrible week, little things pop up that make me smile. One of those is a little "contest" given by a friend, fellow shepherdess and blogger. I shamelessly promoted the fact that I wanted to win and guess what? I won!!! I opened my little package from Michelle of Boulderneigh and I found a yummy bag of candy and a mini raglan sweater that she had knit. Thank you Michelle, I love the gifts, especially the little sweater because it was made by someone special.
|Candy!!!! Who doesn't love candy? Smiling again.
|A perfect mini raglan sweater, THIS was a very pleasant surprise since I secretly covet these little
works of art. Yep, smiling.
A couple weeks ago I got this wonderful gift from Pat, she is a fellow ASK member (Argylian Society of Knitters). I was so touched by this kind gesture that I actually cried. She paints a lot of dogs and when she saw that I had posted a picture of our new Maremma pup on Facebook, she picked out a rock and painted a profile of Bianca's head on that rock. My dad took the rock home and mounted it on a nice little wood plaque so I could hang it on my wall. Another thing that makes me smile.
