It has been a while since I last posted; life has kept us very busy from struggling with health issues as I have been for the past week (some unknown illness with increasing symptoms that tha VA can’t seem to figure out, almost 2 years of sickness and frustration) to getting back into a homeschooling routine, taking care of the house and farm (always trying to learn more about homesteading, self-sufficiency and rabbit ranching), and then their was the County Fair which kept us really busy this year; you can read about that experience (and see all of our entries) HERE at www.4dfarmandrabbitry.wordpress.com.
Aside from that I have been occupied with filling orders and making new items for Handmade & Homespun itself. After placing an ad in Top of the Rock’s most recent program, I was contacted by a local boutique to do some custom crochet designs for the equestrian set of all things.

While I know a bit about various livestock and farm animals, and have learned a great deal about rabbits over the past year as we began to breed them, horses are not an animal I am very knowledgeable about. Admittedly their size and my lack of knowledge make me a tad bit frightened of them but crocheted horses don’t have the same effect.
Along with a herd of horses I have also crocheted a herd of rabbits (yes, they are called the same thing). Lonoke’s mascot is the Jackrabbit; with homecoming at the end of this week I was asked to crochet some Jackrabbit pins for an alumness to give as gifts to her classmates (if only I could get our 4D Bunnies to multiply as quickly as I can crochet these little guys; we have learned that rabbits don’t really procreate like, well, rabbits). And then for fun I recently crocheted several animal hats. I guess I have crocheted a veritable yarn menagerie. Check out my zoo below.
“And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good”. Genesis 1:25
