Goings on

​​I think with all the craziness with Toph, Moose, and the chickens, we haven’t had time to settle down and breath until this week. So it’s time to play catch up!I have made so very many hats for the craft fair 


I’ve actually made two more since this picture was taken, they aren’t finished just yet though, as I am now working on the flowers


Yes I know that flower is two big, I had taken the picture for my friend a size comparison and to help me decided if the flower colors went well together. It took three days to find the right combination and a lot of frogging went on.

Remember that blue faced lecister I spun up awhile back? My quilting group entered a bunch of homemade projects in one of the local fairs and lo and behold I won! Though I will add that I have no idea if there was previously a category at this fair for homespun wool, our guild leader took all the items over and didn’t say if there were other entries, so I may have won buy default. 

As always when I change my craftroom around I like to show you all, I had taken over the dining room as a sewing room this past month. We usually eat in at the kitchen table anyway and I needed a good sturdy table, so in an attempt to gain the dining room back, Toph went out and bought be a six foot folding table, and after moving around my craftroom, I am really liking how it looks, and how easy it is to move around


Believe it or not, this entry has taken two days to write, and as it is now 10:23 pm 😴 I will leave you with pictures and a video.


We’ve had a couple of big furry visitors on our road lately


Have a great night folks!

I know why silk yarn is expensive

It’s because it’s hard to ply 

  
I tried so hard not to waste any of it, but after thirty minutes of struggling, I lost about half a foot (finally untangled the part I cut after I finished plying)

   
 

14 wpi (wraps per inch), and the yardage is not long, about 47 yards. However I had a one oz roving, so the yardage isn’t surprising. 

  
The ears aren’t sewn on, but I swear they are the same size!!! Leif’s hobbes is finally looking like a tiger, and despite my sudden disinterest in anything to do with yarn this week, (it’s cold again, and I don’t want to remove myself from the confines of heavy blankets.), I will continue until this project is complete.

Yesterday we looked at farms, only two stood out, but alas one was in need of a big upgrade for heating issues, so that leaves us with our front runner (for now, looking at a few more next week). So folks of NH, if this fireplace looks familiar  

 

Congratulations, we are seriously considering making you an offer on your beautiful home (also, I saw a gray dear while walking the property, I’ve never before seen a gray deer!). If this your farm is for sale, and this isn’t it, fear not we are still checking out a few other options before we make our final decision. 
Have a nice day folks!!
