The Critter Ranch and Shearlock!





Shearlock's travels has taken him to visit The Critter Ranch in July! I was waiting for photos to get back so we can show you all what a wonderful time he had! Look at his new outfit too! He'll be wearing that on his next adventure ;)

Shearlock reports that The Critter Ranch is a magical fibery place filled with artisan dyed goodies and friendly fiber animals.

To celebrate his return, The Critter Ranch is giving away this beautiful piece of spinnable artwork- Sue's interpretation of the July Seaweed, Ships and Scallywags theme "Ocean Floor".
Just visit The Critter Ranch, find something you like and come back here and write about it in the comments section- go ahead and do it now, we'll wait for you! ...... Done? Ok! Make sure you twitter and facebook so your friends have a chance too, and you'll be rewarded with extra entries.

Um, I want the whole lot, but if I have to choose one thing it would be the SeeWeed batt or the Roses in the Dark batt.

It's almost autumn, so "Western NY in the Autumn" would be just the right thing. "Hand dyed and proceessed in the colors of fall" - yes, please!

I've been eyeing up the Cotton Candy batt for a long time now. . .maybe I'll treat myself at the end of the month :)

ikkinlala said...

The SeaWeed fiber batt is pretty!

Southern Mystic said...

Ooooo! So much fibery goodness to choose from ... I think if I was going to buy something today, it would be the llama/blends sampler with the tan, peach, rose, brown and green. But I love all the samplers, and the pink/orange batts (I'm on a pink/orange kick, it seems) and ... oh heck, I love it all! But samplers have a special place in my heart because I can use them in so many different ways.
