I am getting ready to ship my first "real sale" to a shop here in Michigan!!! I am so excited. She wanted just raw angora fiber, but she needs 8 ounces which doesn't seem like alot but since it is so light it is quite a bit. I was concerned I didn't have enough in stock and still have enough to spin with, but after going through all of what we have there was PLENTY with more to spare! LOL Not much else is happening here. The puppies are doing great and getting bigger every day. Hubby is on a business trip to New York and Massachusetts this week and won't be home until Friday night. I already miss him. It is really hard when he travels on both of us. I end up doing all 5 of the kids running alone, and he is driving between the two states this week so he will have a long one too. Here are some pictures of my first sale ready to be boxed and sent.

What a weekend! 4 of the 5 kids have had the "plague" since Thurs. Our youngest had to be taken to the e.r. at 2 a.m. Sunday morning with an asthma attack, he is at home but has some kind of virus. My bedroom is an infirmary right now. Sat morning around 1 a.m. it was a nursery as our lab had her pups! 9 beautiful pups, 3 chocolate and 6 black, just like mama. So between the two nights hubby and I got very little sleep! We did have a blessed Easter although only half of us were at church together. I am also posting pictures of the baby angoras, they have grown ALOT in a week. I finally got a chocolate angora (that I a keeping for myself) You can see he has a white stripe, which my horse crazy daughter informed me it would be called a "blaze" by all the "horse experts" so that might be his name! Thanks Bekah! The bunnies and puppies are ALL for sale!!! I also sent out my first sample skein of angora yarn to a shop in hopes of selling some!!!

We had another batch of angora babies on Wednesday night while we were at church!! These are English angoras ( I think they look like ewoks) They look like little rats right now, the pictures were taken right after they were born! There are 7 of them. Hopefully we will be able to sell some of them! We had a lot of people interested when we had the french angoras for sale, everyone wanted these kind so we are hopeful that we can sell at least half of them. We did end up selling 3 of the 7 french babies. Today is our 17th wedding anniversary! It measures up to about 30 years in today standards! We will hopefully be celebrating in May up at Mackinaw Island! We already have reservations at the Inn that we have stayed at the last few years. Hubby will be gone about 2 weeks, every month, out of the next 3 months on business, so the trip will be a welcomed change after him being gone so much!
