Yep, we have lambs 🙂 Here are pictures shortly after being born.
This little girl is Hope
and her sister is Joy.
Their very proud mama is Maybelline. They were both 8 lbs. at birth and are healthy, flashy girls. I just love little lambs! I also love our Jacob sheep – I fed at 7:00 this morning and Maybelline was in a corner by herself but came over and ate her alfalfa. I went back out at 10:00 and she had them most of the way cleaned up and fed.
The other girls that I have been waiting on kind of had a look on their face like – “OOOOHHHHH, that’s what we are supposed to be doing.” 🙂 We’ll see if this opens the flood gates.
Dolly was thoroughly enjoying the back rub from my brother and son! She is such a funny girl.
While waiting for the lambs to start arriving, I got my valances done for my studio. They are a brown felt with a sheet of our jacob felt felted on the front with the burgandy design.
My brother drew out a design example for me on a piece of paper and it translated to felt well.
I also made a logo and labels for my products.
It is amazing what you can do with a cloud, 2 rectangles, and 2 ovals in Microsoft Word 😉
Off to check for more lambs 🙂
Oh how cute. They are flashy little girls, like their mama. I love what you are doing with your studio. I wish I lived closer so I could take classes from you, maybe I can squeeze in a couple classes during the summer if you have started up by then.
Adorable! And I love their names. Perfect for such a day! Your valances are so very creative – I love them! What a fun project. And your logo! FAB!
Congrats Shannon! Love the ewe’s name, that on my list for a special ewe lamb maybe this year?… We’ll see but hey, we both own Violets, Celestes and Hollys. 😀
Awesome valances! You are well on your way to an awesome studio! Love the labels you did for your wool too and the logo really is eye catching… Hmmmm… I’ve gotta get going on one for my sheep! I wish something would just pop in my head, and hopefully not at one o’clock in the morning. 😉
PS: Watch out! Those ewes are gonna start spitting them out now that Maybelline started!
Love the beautiful valances!
Ohhhhhh! Beautiful lambs. I am so excited about lambing and am amazed we don’t have any yet, the ladies look like they should have lambed awhile ago. Your fiber studio looks like a place I would enjoy working on wool in , and I am excited for you in this endeavor!Looking forward to more posts about lambs and your fiber art.
Congratulations on two really pretty girls!
I swear, as much as I love the Shetlands there is nothing cuter than a Jacob lamb!! I’m willing to bet the floodgates are getting ready to open!
Oh, they’re so sweet!!! Congratulations on your new additions!
The logo is awesome (I wouldn’t expect anything less than awesome from you of course).
Funny story: This past weekend my mom came over to the house to pick me up for the dog show; she walked into the living room and saw the pillow you made me sitting on the couch. She picked it up, looked it over and then (with much love and a smile on her face) said, “I hate her.”
smj – I will definitely have my studio up and running by this summer. That would be fun for you to come down! The best part is that I still have a guest bedroom available.
cardigancorgis – That is too funny! I can totally see her saying that. Thanks for the good laugh this morning 🙂 Tell her that I still like her!
Thanks for all of the nice comments. I am getting really excited about it!
