Hummingbird time again

We've finally gotten our droves of hummingbirds.  We saw one really early and then they just didn't come.  They band hummingbirds here and found that they come through the Mimbres Valley on their way to Alaska, where they breed and then return.  This is the return of the females and babies I believe.

And the River Ran....

I've been mending the lane lately with the techniques showed us by Matt, who works with the land to prevent erosion  So this is my rendition, hopefully it will stay in place for a while. The first flood over it proved successful!  It's a lot more work than it looks from these pictures.  I'm glad we have so many rock on the property.

Busy Month!

This has been a busy month or, fiber festivals and just plain busy.  Here are some color glimpses of some towels I've been working on.  Each square has a little something going on in it, which makes it fun to weave.  This is the 8/2 dyed organic cotton yarn.
