  Thanks for the spinning advice! I hope all the crops grow well for you. Mom and I canned 18 quarts of pickled beets last night and it looks like I have about 15 quarts left to go. Next comes the dill pickles...mmmmmm.

Love your pics! I am wanting to learn to spin and weave my own fleeces. I raise Jacobs. Have any pointers for a beginner like myself?

  Suzie is just adorable and your view is gorgeous! I'm impressed with your ability to weave. I took weaving lessons this summer and decided that it's way too precise for me...I'll stick to knitting! What I did gain was so much more appreciation for the skill and talent of weavers! My hat is off to you and Paradise Plantation!

  Mornin' Maryanne!
Ah, I would absolutely LOVE an 8-shaft loom! But I can still do a lot with mine, and have plans to try just about every draft I can on it! I buy my supplies at Rosepath Weaving in Lindale, Texas. If Regina doesn't have it, she can usually order it for me. Right now, I have a Heather Wool throw on my loom for my sister, but as soon as it comes off, I'm planning on doing a rag rug. I've got plenty of scrap fabrics around the place, some just about wide and long enough for a good strip. I dream of the day I can weave with something I've spun. But I have a lot of patience, so I know that day will come eventually. Thanks for the ordering information. Although Regina can usually get anything I need, sometimes it's hard to get over there (its a three hour drive for me) and it's nice to have a backup. I'll definitely check out their website! Hope you have a great day! Julie

  HI!
Is that a four shaft loom? It looks a lot like mine. I see you weave rugs. Do you join your weft together before weaving, or do you just overlap your strips? I have a 4 shaft, 45" LeClerc, and am really wanting to starting weaving rugs. Right now, I have several cones of rug yarn, but really like the idea of the rag weaving, or even possibly blend them both, depending on the fabric that I use for the rag. I see you also can, raise chickens and spin. I love to can and bake, raise chickens for both meat and eggs (we sell most of our eggs, but I always keep a few for myself for baking!) and would love to spin. I finally found a spinning wheel on Craigs List that looks promising, but I haven't talked to them yet. Love your pictures!!!!

  Thank You for Visiting
It is hard work, we still have daytime jobs. My husband is a bush pilot and I work at a hospital. We have 6 ewes, they are mixed breed but all but one have Romanov in them. I like to spin and their wool is beautiful. I also weave. We have a huge garden. God is central in our lives.
