Spring garage sales hit town last weekend; and while my real reason to go into town was to mail off a skein of yarn I had sold on etsy (yea!), I managed to hit a few sales. And voila a whole box of  wool yarn was just sitting there waiting for me, calling me to [...]

think spring

Something about this thread made me take a lot of pictures of it. I couldn't even continue weaving for awhile, until I was done admiring its pattern...or something.So I was pretty happy weaving the pink and orange chenille scarves; the colors made me think of the tulips to come. Giving myself some credit or perhaps [...]

Below is a sampling of [...]

Spring+porch+spinning=peace?

By |2011-03-22T01:29:00+00:00March 22nd, 2011|Uncategorized|3 Comments

I look forward all winter, to the first day of weather warm enough to spin on the porch.  Today was just such a day, and I am not even cheating and bundling up in every piece of wool I own. Looking forward to listening to the returning birds sing and watching the chickadees at the [...]

spring in Wisconsin

By |2016-10-25T16:52:28+00:00March 13th, 2011|Uncategorized|4 Comments

These are times of turbulent weather and political drama.  Our governor of two months has stripped most of our public workers of collective bargaining rights, that have been fought for, and in place the last 50 years.  He has done so in such a way as to have many from both sides crying foul and [...]

Susan’s Fiber Shop..spring fling

By |2016-10-25T16:52:30+00:00April 14th, 2010|Uncategorized|1 Comment

Susan's shop near Columbus, Wi. was a drool worthy spring outing,for a couple of my fiber buds and I; well worth the 2 hour drive.  A nondescript pole shed in the country, jam packed with enough color, fiber and books to keep us occupied for a quite a few hours.  We only left to go [...]

2nd monday at Susans

Just what we needed, a good blast of color and the inspiration we always come away with when we visit Susan Johnson at her Avalanche Looms shop and weaving studio. It was a large and boisterous group; I know that I missed talking to quite a few people. I mostly walked around from one eye [...]

makin’ flowers, seeing igloos’

Winter has been long and winter has been dark, thereby my manic flower making. Lots of color with some of my lampworked beads for the centers and made into pins. Ah... that's better; not a trip to Tahiti, but it will do until the real thing pops out of the ground. Might be awhile judging [...]
