Sit Back, Relax, and Catch Up
I have always loved early mornings. In the dark of winter I love to knit by the woodstove and sip my coffee, enjoying the quiet before the day begins.
This morning I enjoyed a dew-soaked walk through the garden. I picked the last of the asparagus, some lettuce and some herbs. The picture above was a hen turkey hiding in the wheat a few weeks ago. She spotted me and took off. The wheat is now higher, but not quite ripe.
I've been so busy lately that I'm longing to make something with some of the gorgeous yarns that I have stashed away. I've been blogging a lot of personal and family milestones lately. I enjoy writing about gardening and recipes, Etsy, of course, and my love for all things fiber.
Not too long ago, I was addicted to crochet. I would be constantly working and finishing many things. Now that I'm not doing as many local shows, I've sort of relaxed and am really enjoying my work. I'll knit if I want to, sew a small project and, when I'm not busy painting the kitchen, mix in a little crochet. I have several designs planned for Fall, but I'm trying to be realistic about what I'll get done. I do want to have a full shop in October, so I'm glad I'm not doing my usual October shows.
So, as I sort through my bins of delight and make plans to catch up on inventory for Fall, I'll show you a glimpse of some handspuns that caught my eye on Etsy. These are from my friends at EtsyFAST (Fiber Arts Street Team).
