I took a break from blogging. This reprieve was necessary as I’ve been having to make some hard decisions about where The Fiber of My Being was headed. My family and I have enjoyed the past four years of learning, teaching, hauling hay and manure, combing, clipping, cleaning, carding, dyeing, and spinning that have accompanied the creation and growth of our little fiber rescue farm. Above all, we have fallen in love with the animals who have been in our care. My associated business, The Fiber of My Being, is pulling me in a more creative direction, and my body is informing me that the rigors of farming are no longer for me. This has not been an easy decision to come to, but I must do what is best for the animals. I also had to come to grips with the fact that this recession has hit my family hard and for the first time in years I need to go back to work. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to stay home and home school my children now as my youngest has turned 18 and is almost graduated I can move on to other things. I’m very proud of the young man he has become.
I’ve found homes for all the animals with the exception of my 3 favorite buns. I’ve also decided to add other portions to the blog. I love playing with fiber, and all the fibery crafts and studies I’ve done. I have other interests and would like to show them as well. I am a nerd of many facets I will continue to create fibery fun items for the shop, create patterns and teach classes (which I love).
In my previous life (before fiber and farm). I was a music teacher/composer and spent some time in computer programming. I also enjoy a good RPG, have certification in herbalism, and love cooking. These are things I still enjoy and had put on the back burner to run the fiber animal rescue.
I considered changing the name of the blog and shop but all these facets of my life are part of who I am , hence still within the fiber of my being. I will continue sharing my fiber studies and projects as well as the Fantastic Fiber Friday Videos. The Fiber Fanatic Files will remain the same as well.

I hope you enjoy seeing into more facets of who I am.
