warm fuzzies



the farm nursery presently includes a wee calf and several lambs, all being bottle fed for one reason or another. while they share time in the great outdoors some nervousness regarding the calf's health has led to her enjoying nights in front of the kitchen fire, where the Youngest of the Three has been tending (the calf's) every need. what goes in must come out and requires speedy action with a bucket.

every cloud has a silver lining and so the emissions are being saved in a large receptacle (NOT in the kitchen) for the next indigo bath...

  3. I thought these were stuffed animals when I first saw them. How precious! Maybe you could start a line of stuffed toys - Lambies.

  4. Hey, I could put up with "emissions", if I had those cutsies leaving in my kitchen...;)

  5. I wandered in search of a clue to the use of woad in place of indigo for a blue dye. Do you harvest and use woad for a blue? And, enjoying this post about the wee ones (who are not quite a bit older now??) I see another clue to working with woad without "non-foaming ammonia" ... using instead the "emissions" of a liquid type. Am I riding the correct wave lengths?
