Stash Busting

Let me go ahead and admit I have somewhat of an issue. When it comes to spinning fiber, I have no monetary control. I can’t give my money away fast enough. The highlight of my day is often finding a big, squishy envelope in my mail box. Those packages fill my heart with fibery warmth […]

There was something about the way the sun shone into the windows today that created a sort of calm on the west side of the house. The beams of light that were cast across my office and fiber studio warmed me to my toes. It was the perfect afternoon after spending the morning at the […]

Halloween Spin-a-Long

Raise your hand if you like Halloween? And raise your hand if you like spinning wool? Now raise your hand if you are a fan of a good, old fashion SAL (Spin-a-Long)??? I’m sure many of you have your hand up if not for all of these, at least for one of these. I have […]

See this…

I make it now! Okay – sorry about the poor attempt to reference my favorite, still to this day, SNL clip. But I make them now! I blogged a few posts ago about a batt that made me fall in love with all things wool. It only seemed appropriate that I eventually learn to do […]

Lots to say, lots to say.

I didn’t mean to go away for an entire week! I blame the sick I somehow contracted last Sunday/Monday that knocked me down and drug me through the mud for 4 days. I think my defenses were still on vacation from my mini cold I had a couple of weeks ago because I sat at […]

A Challenge

I have enjoyed spinning since December of 2007 when my mom gave me a drop spindle for Christmas. If you have followed my blog, then you know I purchased my spinning wheel this past fall. I have spun, spun, and spun some more ever since. I’ve tried to fill my shop and my Holiday craft […]

Sometimes you create

And sometimes you clean. Saturday’s are usually reserved for grocery shopping and crafting. Today I shopped, spun some wool (which was more frustrating than it was relaxing – I was having issues today) and cleaned/organized. My house has kind of been in a semi mess since Christmas. There was a small pile of Christmas decor […]

Blue Jean Baby

While watching some football this evening, I decided to work on predrafting some wool. Well, actually not having to predraft as much as I do to spin. I worked on a lovely skein today (spun from a couple of Hobbledehoy batts), seen here, and while I’m completely in love with it (my best thus far) […]
