The Echo Flowers Shawl is finished and in use:
Here's a closeup of the edge detail:
Like many of the victims of Henry VIII, I seem to have misplaced my head. I'm having so much fun with the Mary Tudor cardigan, I can't put it down.
Mary Tudor was the sister of Henry VIII and did not lose her head but led an adventurous life and apparently died of natural…Continue
This week has been crazy! Besides trips to eye doctor, dentist and Apple store for a new iPad, I made a trip to Shepherd's Bush and Needlepoint Joint in Ogden with friends from Common Threads.Continue
Snow arrived in Park City last week. That's Sunny, checking out the snow on the front deck.
We usually get a light snowfall in September. This year it was unusual, though. We had five days of light to medium snowfall with some accumulation on rooftops and shady areas. It's gone now, but the temperatures have stayed…Continue
It's called "Autumn in Park City." The fiber was dyed by AlohaBlu inspired by a photo I took of local fall colors. You can find her Etsy shop here.
The photo that inspired the colors is in my September 26th blog…
We got another blizzard, starting Saturday night. Here's what it looked like midday on Sunday:
This is the time of year to be concerned with those less fortunate. Do you carry a packet of nonperishable food in your car? You never know when you might come across someone in need. Our Squeeky…Continue
This week has been busy! (So what else is new?)
There are presents to wrap and send off, more knitting and quilting to do (some of which I can't show you) and other preparations to make. We took the time to dress up the pups and mug for the camera, though.
The annual get together for the…Continue
It's 100% alpaca, so should be nice and warm! It's for a family member who might see this, so I can't say, but I'll try to post a photo later on its new owner.
I have never made so many presents for friends and relatives as this…Continue
We got back from Texas last night, after a wonderful week. I'm sure you all know about the wonderful interfaith wedding that took place on July 31st! No, the other one. The one involving our DD!…
The fiber is Corriedale, a breed of sheep. The dark chocolate color and white are both natural. The blue, orange and taupe are dyed by me with Koolaid and a little food coloring, about a year ago.… Continue
This was the Corriedale fiber I dyed using Koolaid and a few drops of food coloring. I'm finishing up the Taupe fiber now. I'll try to post a photo as soon as I'm done plying. You can see the taupe in the upper right-hand corner of the top photo. I'm…Continue
Holy spinning wheel, Batman! It's Tour de Fleece time! I've been spinning away on my Kromski Sonata, spinning this fiber:
I joined Teams Kool Kromski, KP and Rookie, and I have spun for at least a little while each day since the TdF started on Saturday. This is the fiber I dyed last year with Koolaid and black food coloring, and I have some natural white and chocolate brown to go with it. I finished spinning the 4 oz. of blue…Continue

This was so much fun, and I love the colors, I decided to make a purse to match. Only it will be all green, no brown. Here's what I have so far, with the fabric I bought for lining:…
It's receiving a nice anniversary present from me--a protective carry bag, which you can see in the photo above. I had some WotA Bulky left in "Hazelnut," and also some of the same yarn in "Oregano" in my…Continue
There are still some things I haven't figured out, but now I have a new computer AND an e-book reader, which I've been wanting for some time. I can't do anything that requires a CD, and I have to load my audiobooks from Audible onto the PC laptop I've been using in order to sync to the iPad. They also didn't have…Continue
