Right now, she is in a giant dog crate in the living room.

She probably thinks she's your inside dog.  Are you prepared to keep her in the house?  Are the other sheep accepting her when you take her out?

Well, I did get it all sorted!  3 boxes are going to Cindy for doggie beds!  One - I will ask the children’s clothes makers if they want it....but the last time I ask, they turned me down.

im keeping one basket of fabric that I sort again and launder to see if it is worth keeping.  There there is this!  

everyone who does charity need to roll themselves off a long, long length of each of these rolls!  Then I could deal with the rest.....lol!  These rolls are huge!  I can’t begin to guess how much is in these rolls!  Lol.....

Patti!  You need to come sew with me!

I do believe that Mr. Pirate & I are the last people to make it home safely .. which we did today, Thursday, 3/4.   We've been on the road for 1 day shy of 3 weeks.  It has absolutely confirmed to me that *I* am not going to be a full time RVer!  I don't like constantly traveling.  I like my brick and mortar home with all of my "stuff"!

I do like taking short forays hither and yon and the sheer convenience of our magnificent "tin tent"!  But extended trips?  Nope.  :-)

We did have a cute chuckle afforded to us in Phoenix after the Retreat.  We were boondocking at the Phoenix Elks Club.  We ended staying there for 2 days while our Jeep was looked at.  Also at the Elks Club was a Class A RV.  (A Class A is like a tour bus)  This Class A was also towing a flatbed with 2 ATVs, so this behemoth was Very Long.  Our travel trailer is only 17' long, which is Very Short for travel trailers.  Ours is VERY efficient and compact inside, too ... think of a streamlined studio apartment or a small Tiny House.  :-)

Well, the Class A  guy saw us outside one morning and wanders on over to have a chat with Mr. Pirate.  The Class A guy opens up with, "That's an *adorable* trailer!".   

Yes, indeed .. his word .. "adorable".   Heh, compared to his Class A, our trailer looks like an oversized puppy!   So, now, we are continually calling our trailer "adorable".   And we smile.  :-)

I'm sure none of us "need" more fabric, but isn't it fun to go through?

I take her out during the day and hang with the sheep, she plays with the other babies, but comes back to me when she gets spooked!

She will go back out, and it will be traumatic, but probably in a week or so. Trying to get her eating grain, and there are 4 more ewes due to lamb in a week or so, so more babies.

Glad you got the donations sorted.  When I got the 4 big boxes, that was a big chore.  Then finding homes for everything I couldn't use was another.  Maybe I'll take some of those rolls.  Looks like they are cut into strips.  How wide are they.  Might make up fast quilts for the church charities.

Hope none of the new babies require bottle feeding.  Probably won't be born during a cold snow event.  At least physically Elsa will be strong enough to be outside with the others.  Maybe she will bond with the newly expected lambs.  They won't know she was not always there.  Just guessing.  I'm a city girl.relaxed
