I loved my sheep

When I was little I wanted pets. I was fortunate because we were living in the country so it was an option. Especially if you could find a use for them.

I remember being with the ladies as they had a quilting party in someone’s basement. The sheep’s wool was washed in the old washer in the corner. We all had the carting paddles and were carting the wool. It was kind of fun brushing the wool back and forth with the brushes. That is what the ‘wool carting’ paddles looked like to me. The best quilt I ever had.

Back to pets. Guess what I got to have? Sheep! I named them David and Ester after my favorite Bible characters. I loved those sheep. I loved them like Elmyra loved her pets.

 

I loved those sheep despite the warnings from my parents that they didn’t like it. Then they grew full size and were larger than I. Now I was on the receiving end of their affection! Which consisted of strong headbutts and me being the one running in the opposite direction! IMG_0915

 

 

On a personal side note. I will be changing my posting schedule to once or twice a month.  I am focusing more time on the manuscript and less time on posts.  My personal life seems to have hit high gear lately – more things to do and less time to do them in it seems.
