oh my gosh! I want to move in to Windswept Farms! I just said "it's time to redecorate!" I want a spinning room and a fiber room! Too cool. The sheep are so beautiful! Thanks for sharing that.

Coggie, yay for Ms. PurplePants! Looks great. :)

Bams, I LOVE the nutkin socks. They were one of my first queued projects I think. Maybe I should knit them...
