On the first day

Today my blog was born. I finally just did it, Thanks Deb.  Finding a name was a bit of a challenge but with persistence I came up with a name that was available on blogspot. Of Petals and Wool is about two of my passions, oh, I have many more passions than I have time to indulge but for the sake of a name it will suffice. My flower gardens with its millions of petals and my rug hooking are the main ones at the moment.

At the present, I'm only getting familiar with navigating my new blog and hopefully I will be more comfortable as I discover its little secrets.

It's almost time to go check on my new born bull calf and feed the other calves and do my barn chores.


  1. Welcome to Blogger! Looking forward to reading about your adventures!

  2. Thanks Jackie. I only sent it to you just to see how it was working.

  3. Happy Birthday to your blog! Congratulations - but watch out - it can be rather addicting. Here I sit all blurry eyed, need to go to bed, so you see! Sounds so neat when you talk about your calves. It will be fun getting to know each other. /Deb
