Mama Owl

We went to see the Owls on Saturday morning. The babies were deep in the nest sleeping and Mom was out hunting, but we found her here. Click on the pic to see her better. She was really watching us. We stayed a little while and then left so she could get back to the babies. It was great to see her.

The trip to pick up Sarah was grueling. Dave and I went up and back in one day. We planned to stop in Dell for breakfast. This little Cafe was so cool, Its an old school house. It still has the blackboards on the walls and other school memorabilia. The key though was the food is fantastic. In the close up you can see it was called the Standard school and its years of operation. Its funny that they called it the Calf-a.

Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers day to all the mothers out there whether you have children or not. We are all mothers in some way.

This is what Dave got me, some additions to my Fiestaware. I have been wanting these so it was nice to get them. Sarah gave me a flat niji waterbrush. I have been wanting one of them too.

Back to the Dyepot

At the last minute I got a booth for the Snake River Fiber Fair so I have got to start dyeing in earnest. I have Shetland to sell, but want some dyed fibers as well. I did 3 lbs yesterday and plan to some today too. I thought I had an extra week but I mis-caculated. So this will be a really busy week. It looks like my classes will go so I need to prepare for them too. I am teaching Introduction to Weaving and Preparing a Fleece. They will both be fun.

Happy Mother's Day. Cool gifts! The owl is so beautiful and that is such a great pic of her.

Congrats on doing the classes and the booth. That sounds pretty exciting.

Oh that owl, she looks so majestic and wise and of course quite cautious and protective.
Sounds like quite a LONG trek to get Sarah but the cafe sounded quite unique.
Hope your Mother's Day was nice, love the Fiestaware.
OH and that is so great you'll be teaching AND selling. I would love to see you weave in person.
