To Everyone who placed orders during the hurricane!  Thank you for your patience while we were cleaning up from Hurricane Irma!  We still have several trees to be removed (hoping tomorrow!!). We are extremely thankful that none hit the house.  The studio is reorganized, all neat and tidy for a few days anyway, 

I finished this stained glass design during the hurricane.  I used my trusty Beam N Read Light,  hang it  around your neck light when the power goes out and you can accomplish anything!  This pattern is sold by Honey Bee Hive Rug Hooking, designed by Jane Flynn.  I believe I will frame it.

 

Spinning when the power is out is easy!  At least during the daylight hours. At night I was able to use a power block and a LED light from the studio. This is Alpaca fiber and I am going to use it as is.  I kind of like the soft color.  I am always told MORE TWIST!  So I did, and added more twist when plying.  It was such a twisty chaotic mess and not photo worthy, not happy at all.  However, the magic happened in the soaking.  Now I am delighted with it.  The fluffy yarn is wonderfully balanced.  Can't wait to get it on the loom!

The Belleview Florida  library asked me to bring in some of my items for display for the month of September!.  Some of my hand-dyed wool is on the bottom, a few rug hooking pieces are hanging and on the shelves.  I took my gold scarf that I made on my rigid heddle loom.  A knitted felted bowl (finally learned the double pointed needles so pretty happy with that).

If you are in the area stop in and take a look!

What was I thinking when I started weaving a scarf when it is over 100 degrees outside?!  I have had this pretty yarn for about 8 months and this week I wanted to use it in a project that I could start and finish in a couple days.  The yarn had some sequins built in and I was worried about it being scratchy, but after a quick soak  in lavender scented soap it came out extremely soft and I think it will be perfect for a Florida winter.
