Wooliedales Etc. -- Looking Back at 2010

Wishing you all a very good and prosperous New Year!
Looking back on time always brings nostalgia for what was and never will be again in quite the same way.  Looking back on 2010, I made pigs, goats, sheep, donkeys, lions, bears , a bunny and chick or two, and a couple of new ventures, like  a harbor seal , a turtle, and musk ox babies. I made Airedales in myriads of poses doing the things Airedales do best, and more than a dozen different breeds of other dogs: Bischon Frise, Cock-a-poo, Pit Bull, Pug, Doberman, Parson Terrier, Welsh Terrier, Cairn Terrier, Lakeland Terrier, Sealyham Terrier, English Springer Spaniel, Irish Terrier, Bloodhound, Wheaten Terrier.            
Pictured here are a few of the more recent  samples from that list....

Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival October 2-3, 2010

Wooliedales had a booth the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival again this year at the Tunbridge Fair Grounds. We renewed some old acquaintances and saw some old friends. This year Another vendor cancelled and we were inside under cover.

After the 5" of rain the previous two days, Saturday and Sunday brought gorgeous sunshine and cool temperatures..we kind of wished we were outside in the sunshine! It was cool in the building. Both days were well attended and we were happy we were there.

NH Sheep & Wool Festival

Here at the Contoocook, NH Fairgrounds, the NHSWF has been cold and rainy but that doesn't seem to have deterred folks from visiting. Lots of people have been in my booth and they truly love the Woolies. Tomorrow is forcast to be partly cloudy and still cool. Mybe the sun will encourage even more people to come, if they haven't other Mothers Day plans. Here's hoping!

Measure a Puppy's Love

Measure a puppy’s love? Impossible!!!
They kiss, they romp, they tussle, they cuddle, they delight at your very presence! Is there any comparison? If you tried, there would be no end to the poem “How Do I Love Thee…let me count the ways!”

(This little guy is in an eBay auction that began Feb. 21, 2010)

Musk Ox

Qiviut fiber from the musk ox is 8 time softer than wool. While at a Wild Fibers event in Rheinbeck, NY in October, a creator of fine clothing and accessories commissioned this fellow and furnished the fiber for me. This fellow's new home is in Canada at one of Qiviuk's boutiques.

Polar Bear w/Cubs

This furry polar family found a new home with dear friends who visited from NH this weekend.
