Preparing for Christmas

This weekend I plan to prepare for Christmas.  I plan to fill the house with sweet warm fragrants with my baking and making Christmas candy.  I will try to get some pictures and recipes up on the blog Sunday.

I am so excited!!! Jane from the wool processor in Illinois emailed me and they are starting to work on my wool.  I can not wait to open that box of wool yarn and hopefully some pencil roving.   I sent them 5 or 6 fleeces from my flock so I can see what they can do with the wool from my flock, the BFL/Shetland crosses and if all goes well, I plan to send them lots of Spinning C fiber next Spring.  Several spinners have spoke for fleeces already but I know I will have several pounds of wool to ship to them.

Praying that everyone has a very happy weekend and that we all never forget the reason for the season.


  1. Glad to hear from you. Worried you got what Dan had, ( again). I bought baking supplies today whilst doing groceries. Came home and the girls were baking. Guess we are all on the same wave length.

  2. I will start baking next week (although I did bake 3 pies and a batch of cookies last week...but the pies are gone and the cookies almost gone already). I'm still tryi g to decide what to make. I know I'll be makig cinnamon candy...but beyond that?
    I will be interested to know about the processor in Illinois...I may decide to send some of my wool there at some point if you are happy with their work.


Thank you for stopping by. I enjoy your comments so feel free to leave one if you please.
