Do you see all of those little droplets?
and a little more rain is what we have had for most of our early summer here in the Mountains. How about you? Has your corner of the world been sunny and warm... or hot, muggy, rainy and miserable like it has been here.....ick! Let's hope for better things in July! Happy 4th!!
Color Me Orange
I have had a few comments from some of my favorite fiber people checking to see if I am still alive...LOL. Working full time, if even from home, has certainly put a crimp in my blogging. I have tried to spend what free time I have working on some different fiber ventures. I take lots of pictures, but unfortunately, I run out of steam at night and opt to spin instead of blog.....but I do miss blogging, so I am going to try to get up a bit earlier in the morning. Now, I am not an early morning person, however, getting up early will not be as hard as it might sound for me.....I will explain a bit later...hehe.
I promise though, I am really going to try to be better with responding to comments, as I do appreciate and enjoy each and every one, even if I didn't have a chance to say so. :-)
I bet you are wondering what the heck those bright orange pictures are........hmmmmm..........
I had some balls of merino roving left over from this winter, so I thought that I would play with them, along with a few of the silk bricks I have sitting around here.
I have been participating in the Color Spectrum Swap, that Lynne has been hosting and wanted to make my swap partner a present with the 2 hands that the good Lord gave to me, so I though I would play with some felting and these 2 bags are what I ended up with
I have been wanting a bag for my double pointed needles, but haven't been able to find one that I liked.
Because I have a tendency to randomly grrab a dp needle out of the pottery vase they have been living in to pull up my hair when I get one of those
damn hot flashes that visit me hourly, I am forever misplacing one, so I thought it was time to create a bag for myself.
One of the things that I wanted to avoid was having to roll the bag up and tying it with a ribbon....call me lazy, but I just don't like bags that roll. I made this one to fold in thirds and snap or button close. All in all I am happy with it :-)
And A Little More Orange......
Meet Maggie, our Orange Belton English Setter puppy! She comes to us from Bob and Francie Stevens of Fieldplay English Setters.
A bigger dog is going to be my new challenge. Keeping her in show shape, is going to help my shape...LOL!
A big THANK YOU to Bob and Francie!
