Is she or isn't she?

For the last couple of days Too Sexy has been nesting like crazy.  Today she pulled out a lot of hair to add to her nest, which she is building OUTSIDE the nest box.  Silly rabbit did this the last time and then had the bun on the wire.   I was hoping she would change her mind and see how useful a nest box can be.  Now lets hope there are some real bunnies to go with this real nest.

Fayette County Rabbit show

Judge Kevin Bogan going over Bunzilla.

Just checking.  He's a buck!

Long day at the show today.  English Angoras were literally THE last breed to be called to the table.  I am thrilled that the wait was worth it as Bunzilla took best opposite sex of breed acquiring a leg over seniors from the junior class.  He's awesome!

New mittens

Since the cold weather has quite a grip on us in Dayton I decided I needed a new pair of mittens.  I am really stuck on the fiber that comes from my black English Angora Sweetpea for mittens.  I know the colors don't all blend well but I think that's the beauty of natural fiber spun by hand.  This is my third pair and they only get warmer with wear due to some felting.  I get frost bite quite easily but not when I am wearing a pair of Sweetpea mittens.

Black? I think not...

I bought some black fabric dye at JoAnn's and got this indigo blue.  It's a good thing I keep an open mind to the possibilities of colors I might get.  Not even close to black!  But I like it.
