Fiber porn!! Just LOOK at these huge balls of fluff...
These are rovings from CJ Kopec. Oh My Goodness! Words can not express the gorgeousness of these delightful orbs. I heard about CJ Kopec on Lime and Violet some time ago but hadn't really checked her out until lately. Her stuff looked really pretty and I signed up for her newsletter. Last week I got my first newsletter and she announced a new limited edition roving. I HAD to have it. That's the top one in the picture. It's called Cottage Rose and is a BFL, merino and silk blend. It has a gentle shine to it that is just fabulous. The second is Cowboy Chic, 100% merino, very similar in color, but without the shine. Both are 4 ounces of fiber. According to her site, she hand cards them and pulls them into roving as they are ordered. The balls are about the size of a bowling ball! No plans for either at the moment, except to admire their beauty.

I thought I had my garden under control. Hadn't seen the bunnies in a while. The broccoli (now protected with huge coffee cans) is starting to come back. Until last weekend when I discovered the critters had struck again. This time my winter squash. The butternut squash was completely gone and the table treat was half eaten. So I cut down some plastic containers (ran out of coffee cans) and planted seeds to try to recoup these plants as well.

And now a shameless "isn't my cat so cute" picture. Is it just me or should this caption read "the prince and the pea"?

The blankets were all piled up on top of the sofa after we cleaned and he perched himself way up on top. Such a sweetheart.
