A Day Spent Indoors

The view from my window today was a wet one. It rained most of the day only letting up long enough for me to steal away to grab some groceries. I had planned to work on my back patio to get it ready for spring and summer cookouts, but instead I sat on the couch […]

The rest of the story

And finally I present to you my new carding station. The empty drafting table from the previous post has finally been inhabited with fiber, tools, buttons, jars, ribbon, a scale, and my drum carder. The world is happy again and you all can go on about your business. I haven’t used it for carding yet, […]

I recently overheard someone talking about my house and my decorating style by saying “Erin really makes it feel like a home in here” (this person doesn’t live here nor is their sole purpose in life to say things that make me feel good).

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 […]

A Finished Object

Remember that yarn I gushed over a while back (see here if you don’t), well, I finally found a project worthy of this yarn. I looked and looked for something I’d wear… a lot. I love hats, but don’t often wear them as I find myself trying to keep my hair looking nice for work. […]
