Ohhh what a long winter it has been and sadly its not even over. I'm not a fan of winter and its coldness, its been bad around here. Schools have been shut down to negative weather even stores. I don't think I have ever been around -40 before! Its definitely not Florida weather!! But off with the icky Illinois weather...
On the Other hand. Been spending a lot of family and friend time (and all nice and warm next to the fire and of course while spinning) I have been doing a lot of working and playing in the barn. (mostly playing)..I want to try new things for this coming year and boy do I have some interesting things happening in my mind : ) Gotta get ready right? When it comes to Playing and trying new things out is what I like to do! I like to see where I can take myself and what I can do with my art projects..I have been adding some new stuff to my Esty Site too.. (some pictures down below) and I must say it has been so awesome, because I Just hit 12,645 favorites I got so excited and I still m!! 2013 has been really great for me and the shop and I must say thank you thank you! If it wasn't for you guys it wouldn't happen! So on that note lets add some cool pics of whats been going on and some details.. And as always my friends..be safe, have fun, craft on and of course get your rock on....
This is one of my hand dyed wool, spun with all kinds goodies... Man I love spinning, so relaxing and always some good doll hair! Or other things...like I have this lady who buys my yarn and makes them into dreads. I like her kinda thinking..
I wanted to try something a little different and I like the way she turned out. She is posted on esty if you want to know more about her
I love this yarn!! and of course to white..she is all dyed and colorful now : )
This was really fun. Here is Harley My little cousin. She is 15 and as you can tell isn't to tall. She has turners. She is only 4'9. Her clothes shopping is hard to do because most of everything was to tight or way to big. SO I told her come to the barn and we will have so fun. I showed her how to so shape, cut, iron, trim, the whole 9 yards.. She took on like a pro and before I knew it she was doing pair of pants after pants. She is the cutest and she had so much fun and so did I.. I love you Harley!!
Spending some more time with family and friends this is my friends Jills beautiful work! She is a felting queen. She has some beautiful work from scarfs to hats to purses you name it. I love this scarf all the colors and flowers.. you rock Jill and if you are interested and want to know more, its posted on my esty page.. Go check it out!
