Happy Anniversary to me!

I usually change blog backgrounds at the beginning of each month, but since I'm changing my header photo to celebrate the start of my fifth year of blogging, I thought I'd change the background, too. The old header photo featured Dinah, my very first Shetland love (she's in the new header photo as well). Seems like a lifetime ago when I got my start in Shetland sheep! They have launched me on a journey of breed education, friendship, blogging, fiber, spinning and knitting that I hope to continue for many years to come.

Speaking of spinning and knitting, here is 123 yards of two-ply purplish prettiness, spun and plied on my Turkish spindles:
Speaking of purple, here is a bud on my lone clematis:It's bell-shaped flowers aren't showy; the bud is almost as eye-catching as the bloom.

You have until midnight tonight to leave a comment here to help me celebrate my 1000 posts/four years blogging milestones. Tomorrow I will draw names and list prizes, hopefully with pictures, which the winners will get to choose from in order of draw. I'll probably be scurrying around tonight looking for what I can add to the prize list, because the more winners the merrier!

That's it for today from . . .

Hi Michelle - I love the new look to your blog, and the new header photo. May you have many more years blogging to us all with your wonderful humor, beautiful photos, and great info on shetlands. The purple yarn is lovely, as well as the flower bud. Take care, from KY, where it looks like we'll get an evening t-storm that is most welocmed.

Congrats from your mum! Since we are on dial-up at home, I've spent the last hour catching up on all the posts + pictures that would not download via dialup before "going off". So I am feeling stuffed with visual delight! Here's love to all of you at Boulderneigh, with with grace and blessings each day. Always grateful for my lovely daughter, Mom
