The day started out like any other. While Mom slept, I made a beret. She liked the purple one, and kept putting it on her head, so I did a blue one for her.
This one is wool and silk, no alpaca. What a difference that made in the felting! This one took much longer to make.
I did some dyeing.
Can you believe I was out of blues and purples? I have been doing some carding/blending.
Then, I looked out the kitchen window. The herd was bunched in one corner of the pasture, looking at something. Wait, there was something stuck in the fence. I grabbed my camera and went to investigate.
How did it manage that? I figure it must have been running away from something, and got caught. I first grabbed it behind the ears so it couldn't turn around and bite me. I don't like getting bit by wild animals of any kind, let alone a rabbit. ("It's got fangs! Run away, run away!") Then I gently got the hips loose, and let it go. It promptly ran through the fence with no problem.
Fiber fanatic that I am, I gathered the fur that the rabbit had rubbed off in its panic, and spun it up.
It didn't go far, but it was fun to experiment.
Then, when I walked back into the house after taking the yarn photo, I saw an indigo bunting at the feeder. It flew away as I took the shot. Dang! After uploading the photos though, I found it flying off the frame. What a beautiful color!
Yep, just another day.
