title this......

That Girl Talks is gone, I never posted on it. I have a new blog where I will yack about my thoughts, fears, trials, tribulation, and all other things of life that don't pertain to my craft. If you want to read about me go to my yacker blog appropriately named marlodaca yacks

On the crafting front I have started to needle felt, made two purses and a duck, knitted umpteen fish, have not touched a hook for a while now, bought a sheep and a goat. Watched a sheep get sheared and I got to keep the wool.

The sheep and the goat are my daughters. They have joined FFA and I am thrilled. The sheep is named No Llamo (no name in spanish) and the goat is named Carrot Top. We have lived at the barn I now have fleece promised from 3 sheep. Soon to be more I am sure. We live at the barn and it is wonderful. The FFA kids and families are the nicest truest people I have ever met.

A few pictures.

until next time.........

The cell phone camera to the rescue. Not the best quality photo but it is better than nothing. This is where I keep all the fish in progress and all of the balls of handspun yarn. My kitty likes to carry them around the house so I had to make a bag with a closure. The bag is made with 12 fish and a crocheted base and crochet around the top of the bag. A simple drawstring was woven in to close the top and two handles attached to the back turned it into a backpack.

fun fun!
