Here are pictures of my first art yarn that I have done! It is hand dyed hand spun by me out of Romney wool wrapped in cotton thread on a core of Rayon thread. I have to confess that it was fun to do and now I have a million ideas for more art yarns. I have already started on a black and white loopy yarn . I will be listing it on etsy as soon as I can. Please let me know what you think!

I would ask you to please check out the link on the right about saving the memorial in the Mohave Desert. The ACLU is fighting to have it taken down and right now due to the legal battle it has been covered. The memorial is a cross erected 75 years ago to honor and remember those who had lost their lives. While the cross is an obvious Christian symbol, this one was not put up to shove religion down anyone's throat, it was put up by soldiers who lost their fellow soldiers in WWI in 1934. Now the ACLU is screaming that because it is on government property it violates the so called "separation of church and state". They need to sit down and read what separation of church and state means!

Mr. President

To messers Nehemiah Dodge, Ephraim Robbins, & Stephen S. Nelson a committee of the Danbury Baptist association in the state of Connecticut.


The affectionate sentiments of esteem & approbation which you are so good as to express towards me, on behalf of the Danbury Baptist association, give me the highest satisfaction. my duties dictate a faithful & zealous pursuit of the interests of my constituents, and in proportion as they are persuaded of my fidelity to those duties, the discharge of them becomes more & more pleasing.

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man & his god, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state. [Congress thus inhibited from acts respecting religion, and the Executive authorised only to execute their acts, I have refrained from presenting even occasional performances of devotion presented indeed legally where an Executive is the legal head of a national church, but subject here, as religious exercises only to the voluntary regulations and discipline of each respective sect.] Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.

I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection and blessing of the common Father and creator of man, and tender you for yourselves and your religious association, assurances of my high respect & esteem.

I do not understand why the American Civil Liberties Union, by which their name implies the liberties of citizens, takes such an active stance against anything of Christian nature! Is it not my civil liberty to believe in Jesus Christ? The ACLU is making a mockery of the civil liberties of the American citizens of this country and getting paid by your taxs dollars to do it!

At any rate this cross was placed to remember fallen fellow soldiers and I believe it is nothing but pure disrespect to those who fought and those who perished for freedom to take it down! Please watch the video and sign the petiton! Please take a stand not for religions sake, but for what is the right and descent thing to do!
