Welcome, come right in!
Blueball Mountain Spindle & Needleworks, the Yarn and Fiber Shop in Historic Downtown Elizabethtown KY, has become the focus of the activities of All One Farms. The Farm, itself is still where the Sheep are raised, Gardens are kept and large dyeing and processing takes place. We continue to live simply, still seek to be self sustaining and remain conscious of our role in the universe. Every day is an adventure and it doesn't always take me where I plan. Come journey with me and share my experiences as I continue evolving my dream. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Felted work in progress....
Got back from NJ last night. Decided to take the time to explore West Virginia on the way back. Stopped at some neat shops, museums and of course antique malls on the way. Found a few treasures, made a few connections and learned a little about a state I had never really spent time in before. It is quite beautiful. The mountains were picture perfect on a cool late summer day. I did a little feltwork on the way (not while driving!). Then came home and put some finshing touches on some of them. I've been working with buddy Glen on making display pieces for my wool felt and yarn. He knows where all the great dead fall is around here. Beautiful cherry, aged cedar, and oak. He can make just about anything I dream up and comes up with some great ideas of his own. Here is a look at the pinkeep we made today. He made the beautiful cherry cup in his shop from found limbs and I made the felted ball for the pin keep top. I love it. We will be making more. Also I've started making my sheep a little more detailed, as seen here. More work will be done on the face and legs. Glen also made the great little trough onthe right and I added the oak and accorns to my felted pumpkin. Looks great! I love working with Glenn...we make a great creative team!
