Friday Smiles

Hello lovelies!  Please don't be shocked -- three posts in one week!  I have decided that I'm going to make an effort to get on my computer at home every other day.  Having said that, please cut me a bit of slack if it takes a while for me to get in the routine!

Today I'm joining up with Annie at A Stitch In Time.   If you need to smile hop on over and see what others are sharing.  

There's so many things in my life that make me smile.  The leaves turning golden, my dog playing with her food like a cat, and one of my obsessions -- yarn.  Seeing all the colors available bring the biggest smile to my face.  It's sensory overload in so many ways.
I watched this adorable creature get sheared.  I love seeing sheep out in the field.  They are so amazing and gentle.  Don't you love those eyes and that adorable pink nose!

Just imagine the relief they must feel in losing all their fleece.  It's probably an extra thirty pounds (or more).  Oh bless.

Good morning Kay. I'm a real lover of all the yarn colours too. I have a feeling our sheep wouldn't thank you for a hair cut right's very cold here now and autumn fast approaches. Thanks for sharing and don't forget to link up so others can see what's making you smile too. 😃

I'd never thought of it like that .... I thought it was just that they love giving us the gift of something to knit with :-)
Great pictures

Happy Friday Smiles Kay...oh my I can smile at yarn too...all those lovely colours and textures...sadly I live in the sub tropics and much use for warm garments - I still smile when I walk through the aisles though, and dream. Not sure about the sheep must say they look great grazing in the paddock and must feel quite different with all the weight off when shorn. Hugs for you and enjoy your weekend Robyn

I am a paper and a fabric stroker but I never want to use them. But I love all the different yarns and want to have a go with all of them. I often wonder whether the sheep like being sheared. We have our shaggy-dog done once a year, just as the temperature starts to rise, but she doesn't seem to even notice. The long haired cat, on the other hand, is a much happier creature after her hair cuts. Kate x

I can see why you like yarn, since the colors and textures in the picture look marvelous. There's a lot of sheep sheering in Del Rio, where I live, so I can relate to your pictures. Happy belated WOYWW and Blessings!

Hi Kay, I love this post . . . how interesting. Don't worry if you don't post that often, the posts that you do print (because you are out enjoying life and not home in front of the computer) are wonderful. Those sheep are so sweet and I love that photo of all the yarn and the marvelous colors, so pretty.
Here's wishing you a lovely week.
Connie :)

What a lovely post, Kay. Those yarns are mouthwateringly gorgeous. The colours are fabulous, and I can imagine just how beautifully soft and tactile they must be. The sheep is delightful, too! At our local county show this year we were entranced by the alpacas with their whimsical little smiles! Delightful creatures all.

Happy belated WOYWW,

I wish I could lose 30 pounds as easily as that!!

Hi Kay, thanks for a very happy post - I love the photo of the yarn and the sheep. Bless - they must feel so much lighter now! Elizabeth xx

Hi Kay! It takes a lot of time to post frequently. Right now I have a back log of trip pictures, so I am posting an average of two times per week of those and then one personal post.

I love your pictures, and it is so nice to be getting to know you on here.

Loved these pictures. The softness & colors of this yarn would have me obsessed, if I were into knitting. Thank goodness I can just enjoy the look and not feel like starting another collection! Enjoyed the sheep pictures too. Bet they feel quite cool once the thick coat is removed. TFS & Hugs
