Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day to one and all. I have added more fiber items to my Etsy store for those folks who might be interested. I even listed for sale some periwinkle Cotswold locks. They’re very soft and yummy. ( I tend to keep Cotswold locks for myself.)

I’ve decided this year’s theme will be to explore wool fibers as best I can. I intend to try new wool offerings whenever possible, from assorted wool top or roving to scouring untried fleece. Break out of the mold is the goal. So if you come across anything interesting or a good source, please do share. I feel the need to shake things up!

Happy Holidays to All!

December 23, 2008

This holiday’s winter weather has really been an challenge  for many parts for the US.  Besides Seattle taking a beating, arctic blasts sent temps WAY down in many parts of our nation.  I can honestly say I did not find the single digit temps fun.  But the recent bouts of frigid temps, ice and snow does translate well  into productive spinning time.  And soon I plan on dyeing fibers for sale.  New colourways are coming.  Make a note. 

Happy holidays to all!  Stay warm and safe!  Pepper

The Holidays Are Coming!

October 15, 2008

Now is the time to start preparing for the holidays. I have started my spinning for selling, gifts and charity. The handspun “Purple Carnivale Twist” yarn is my latest spinning creation off the Majacraft bobbins.

I bought serveral Gulf Coast spinning batts from Running Moon farm.  Margrett Stretton dyes her own Gulf Coast fleece.  This purple colourway is one of my favorites of her dyed lots. Thank you, Margrett!
