Sheep Creek is open for business again so feel free to stop on by!
I’ll be taking it slow at first to leave room for the not-so-scheduled nuances that come with a baby. Starting back in, I’ll be asking for 8 weeks for each mobile so please do plan ahead. I look forward to working with you!
This last week brought with it some fun surprises…
Our crafty hands will be very busy over the next months to get ready!

Having grown up with this legacy, I can’t seem to shake a certain desire to use my hands to interact with and cultivate nature in some way. I have found felting with wool to be a great outlet in the city to reconnect with some of my farm roots.
I have to admit that I do daydream a bit about having a spot of land some day to keep a sheep or two…
woolgathering |ˈwoŏlˌgað(ə)ri ng |noun
indulgence in aimless thought or dreamy imagining; absentmindedness: she wanted to be free to indulge her woolgathering.

When I walk into a wool shop, its really hard to resist the temptation to buy wool just because the color is so vibrant. This is evidenced by my growing collection of bags and bins of reds, greens, blues, browns…a bit of a conundrum for our 1 bedroom, 1 closet apartment (shared with a crafty and handy husband with tools and projects of his own). Really though, its nothing a little Ikea storage solutions can’t remedy!
