HI! I've Got A Lot To Share...

I've been sewing, which should come as no surprise since I just had a show. I wanted to share a few things with you!. Below you can see the first Glady Interchangeable Needle Case I've made in a long time (These are really neat needlecases, just sayin'). The customer wanted sheep (naturally) and found a lovely print with a LOT of sheep in a field with barns in the background:

When I worked on the inside of the case, I found a great flannel that is varying shades of green like grass in a field. I tried hard to showcase the Border Collie in the print as well:

Too cute!

Some time ago, a customer in England ordered this for a friend. I know the friend has it now, so I can share that with you:

That's one of the nicest dragonfly patterns I've seen, with the stained glass effect. This is my largest knitting bag, by the way, the Mavis.

Then my sis-in-law will be off to warmer climes soon, and wanted a fun bag to take shopping:

And she wanted it to be colorful! So there's all sorts of colors and brightness in this print and I stacked a couple of buttons for the closure.

Today, I finally took another class in spindle spinning. I've been wanting to ever since my failed class at Sock Summit 09. My new LYS, Wyrd Sisters offered a class today and the size of the class, I know, made a huge difference (there were exactly two of us!). See the yarn I made?

I'll be working on my technique on some undyed merino I have before I do much else with this, but I can finally write off the "Bucket List" that I want to learn to spin. Thanks, Courtney for a lovely class.

And Cate, thanks for having this wonderful Unplanned Peacock yarn in stock:

(I understand this was a mistake yarn - and she has no idea how she came up with it. Well, Natasha, I'm totally delighted with this lovely yarn - named Mystery, appropriately! Not sure what it will become, but it's mine, all mine!)

Now, in between making bags, I'll be working on spindling...no promises, but as I marked one thing off my list, I wrote one on: Learn to spin on a wheel.

(you knew that was coming, right?)

All of those new bags are really beautiful. I wish I had more time to sew but it seems to be put on the backburner, time and time again. On the plus side, my first novel is almost completed (first draft) and I am making my first Fair Isle sweater! Guess we can't do everything, right? LOL

Nice to see what's new here. I posted about my Fair Isle at Veggies...if you want to have a peek.

Hope the cats are doing fine, Ched sends his best headbonks!!!

Hooray! Welcome to the dark side (says she, who just taught two wheel spinning lessons this week) :) I'm glad you had such a good experience.

Glad the spinning is going well. I have several friends who love to do it. I haven't been tempted yet.

How can that be a "mistake" yarn? That is so pretty.

Those bags are beautiful! I didn't see the dragonfly in the stained glass bag until you mentioned it.

Have fun spinning!

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
