- Home Sweet Home -
Just wanted to say thank you to all who have wished us well, crossed their fingers, said prayers and kept a lookout for rentals. In a market for landlords at the moment, it's hard to find something that would suit our needs. We only needed one and now we have it. I'm looking forward to unpacking the crafting stuff and getting back to like as I use to know.
Except for the newness of everything and the children readjusting to new schools and friends, we're all ready for a new adventure.

It's very clean. Not much veg in it and cards up beautifully. Pretty nice for 5 euro each or $7.50. Fleeces can be purchase really cheap in Ireland if you know the right farmer or friend of farmer.

I love the silk worm cocoons. I am always thinking of how I can use them in something, but haven't yet. Until now.
I have good memories as a child of raising silkworms. I'm not sure why we did, but I love the fat soft worms. They are similar in colour to the cocoons with a darker head. At one point they escaped from the box and climbed up into the drapes. The rest is vague. It's been 30+ years. We used to go and cut mulberry leaves for them to eat. The whole process was fascinating. Maybe it was a school project or just something we did for fun. Anyway, life was full of adventure growing up.
Happy Mother's Day to my mother and two sisters. Hope you have a great day. I love you all and think you've done a fantastic job of being mother's to your children.
