Get your daily dose of Fiber!


Last weekend I headed south with the 3 kids to the local fiber festival - a long awaited adventure for all of the senses! It was a gorgeous day filled with fiber fun!
We figured out Leo's drop spindle,but still need to work on our drafting.... picked up some roving for everyone & added a couple more spindles to our collection.


Eily (wearing her fabulous new set from Dayna of My*Unbirthday)had a chance to work on her weaving a bit while Leo held the most gorgeous angora bunny...he almost had me convinced we needed to add it to our menagerie at home but then I came to my senses!



the colors and textures were intoxicating, inspiring and the perfect way to spend a fall day! Be sure you get your daily dose of fiber!

whew...what a week it has been....the first germs of the new school year hit our house & the kids and hubby have been knocked out with nasty colds.

I spent the week in the dungeon preparing for a launch on ebay with my design group - The Clovergirls. We have all created items around the theme of the musical Wicked...and the Wizard of Oz. It was alot of fun & the first time I have taken more of a risk with my designs and created a costume fit for a visit to the Emerald City! Be sure to pop in a take a peek at all of the amazing items offered!

We're off to see the Wizard...........

or we will be soon.

Yesterday Eily, Leo & I snuck out to do a photoshoot for an ebay launch happening later this week. Leo pleaded to model but as I had no headscarf to cover up the buzz cut he was relegated to serving as the photographers assistant. He even brought his own kids digital camera to take his own shots!

I thought I would share some of our fun with you!

First day of School.......

the kids started back this week & for the first time in 11 years I am without a child to care for the better part of my day....a little hard to wrap my mind around...summer flew by & we had so much fun together it was hard to see them get on the bus this week. But their smiles and stories when they tumbled down the bus steps at the end of the day eased some of the sense of loss....and makes me treasure each moment with them even more.

enough of my dithering... here are their happy faces on the 1st day!
