Living and breathing Fiber Arts

Do you have a habit or behavior that if someone were to ask you to explain why you did that you would be at a loss for words? Why do you fold your towels the way you do? Why do you have that morning routine or lack of one? Sometimes the only answer is, 'It's just the way I am.' Or maybe, I've always done it that way' or 'I'd feel naked if I didn't wear a wrist watch!' That's kind of how I feel about fiber arts. It's kind of like breathing to me. I started 'breathing' fiber arts as a 5 year old when I started with a needle and thread sewing scraps of fabric into a quilt top, then doll clothes. One 'breath' led to another and here I am with sheep that are more like family members than pets or livestock. It's time for me to take another 'breath' that's been a long time coming by opening this Etsy Shop. Thank you for your interest in me, my flock/production partners (click on the Read More below), and my shop. You can learn more about us on my website www.TheOldFlocksHome.com

A branch of The Old Flock's Home is Multiplicity Creations where my non fiber creations can be found. You might know the name was 1 letter too long for an Etsy shop name. So check out my other Etsy shop MultiplicityCreation, notice the missing 's'.

WOOL PRODUCTION PARTNERS:
1. Prudence - born 2008 - the oldest of the flock, retired from the position of fence testing
2. Temperance - born 2012 - a little camera shy and always reaching under the bottom fence wire for that clump of grass that is just...a...little...bit...further.
3. Grace - born 2010 - Mother to Jeff, Grace is the resident princess because she's a little aloof and her pale gray fleece color is definitely the 'fairest of them all'.
4. Charity - born 2013 - the flock introvert and twin sister to Val
5. Valor - born 2013 - Val and Charity are Faith's twins, He's one of the two boys in the flock.
6. Faith - born 2009 - Mother to Charity and Valor (Val). Her self-appointed job is to monitor the electric fence for any opportune time to escape.
7. Jeff - born 2012 - If Charity is the introvert, Jeff is the extrovert. If something is happening he's checking it out.
