The short term guests have arrived on the farm, 30 broilers and 3 geese…I suspect that at least one of the geese may end up as a long term resident, that is if the 13 year old in the house has anything to do with it.
For the first time ever someone in the house has gotten attached to a short term guest, I guess we will have to see how this turns house as the goose gets older.
I recently decorated the greenhouse in Shades of Autumn
Late one night I decided I just had to dye some romney wool I had been carding up. Almost half a pound to be exact. I went for a certain dye technique that did not work out at all but instead something else happened and you know why? I kinda like it!
I have all sorts of plans for Shades of Autumn, however I’m certain those plans will change 20 times while I continue to spin up the remaining wool on my bobbins to make way for this beautiful colorway.
For instance Poseidon and Atlantis here, I’m excited to ply these two together and see what happens. I picked up this lovely wool in Virginia last summer but there were only 4 oz of each so combining the two is a must.
For awhile now I’ve contemplated a new fiber art, one that is not new to me but one which I have not practiced in many years. While cleaning up my craft room a while back I noticed my older wheel sitting in the corner collecting dust, I cleaned it up and took pictures, and listed it for sale.
Oh I had some interest and an offer of $150 less than what I was asking that made my eyes pop out of my head. After awhile I de-listed it and decided to hold on to it for awhile.
By way of fate I found someone who was not only selling the one thing I had been looking to save up for, they wanted a spinning wheel for the trade.
That folks is how I ended up with this beauty that is still sitting in my garage until social distancing is over when I can find someone to help Toph and myself carry it into my craft room
I’m so excited to start weaving and creating beautiful items. I’ve been watching videos on making fabric and cutting that fabric to make clothes. Oh I cannot wait!
Have a great week folks!!
