Twelve years ago, I moved to Central NY. There was a job opportunity that was the initial draw, but part of the attraction was that I could purchase land and raise sheep. I had been teaching weaving and associated fiber arts in the Northern Virginia area for 15 years, and was very interested in exploring the full life-cycle of fiber.

My corporate associates didn't understand it. My weaving students didn't understand it. My friends didn't understand it. It was a very lonely decision.

It has taken a long time to decide to blog. Part of the deliberation was "what is the focus of this activity?" I would like to build a community and promote the farm. I would like for others to see what attracted me here and what keeps me here. And, I suspect, I would like to remind myself.


  1. Cute animal pictures are key. Then you'd have to brush the sheep, maybe wash it. Find a cat or squirrel to pose with it. And no snow over 6"

  2. Welcome to the blog world!
