My finished Fall Rovings are here!!! I went up to Maine, Sunday, to pick up the wool that I had sent up for processing. Remember all of those different batches of dyed angora.........well look at how they ended up :-). I am so pleased with this batch of angora/merino roving, that I may just have to stash some of it away for me. I am thinking that I may send off my next batch to be made into yarn, so there will be a little of everything for my fiber friends! You can find more details and pictures of the rovings in my photo album on the left side bar. Yummy stuff, I tell you :-)))~~
A VERY Special Gift!!!
Friday morning was a chilly, brisk morning here in the mountains of New Hampshire. As I sat bundled up in my winter robe with a mug of java, I sat down to read my daily blogs, before starting the day's work. As I was reading one of my favorites, Spinning At Walden Farm, I noticed the lovely scarf that Anne had just finished. I loved her choice of colors and
especially the beaded accent on the fringe. I liked the pattern so much so, that I said to myself, that I would have to ask Anne if she might share that pattern with me. As I continued to read, I saw that Anne had made the scarf for a friend who was trying to meet a personal weight loss goal...hhmmmm......then she mentioned DANCING.....even more curious...hmmmmmm. The most curious part was that a few days earlier, Anne had mentioned that she was sending something on to me, which REALLY got me curious. Let me tell you................I was camping at the PO today.......LOL.
Anne.........THANK-YOU!!! I can't tell you how touched I am by your kindness and how much I adore this scarf!! You must have known just how that scarf would look with my red hair and hopefully the small black dress I will be wearing...hehe!!! You are the BEST!!!
Not too many fibery things got done here this weekend, between the kitchen being worked on, delivering a loom to Center Harbor, NH (home of Patternworks..hehe) and a trip to Maine to pick up the Rovings, there was not alot of spare time..
I did however finish up the the small neckerchief, that I had been working on. It is made with a Llama, Angora Silk Blend and finished off with a celtic clasp. I had made this to sell at some of the fall fairs, but I am contemplating tucking this one away for me...grin. It has such a lovely drape.
Have you noticed the background for the scarf and the neckerchief??? Yup.........that would be the Paprika sofa!! After I polled the readers on the blog and talked to my DH, even though he wasn't in love with the sofa, he left me a note by the coffe maker the next morning, with his debit card, telling me that he wanted me to have the sofa that I wanted. What a guy!!! Definitly a "Keeper". The floral throw pillows are missing as those needed to be custom ordered, so they will be here in a few weeks. That should give me a little time, before I need to start renovating the living room to match the sofa....hehe.
