Updating Etsy Store with New Fibers

March 7, 2009

I have added some new fibers for sale to my Speckledram Etsy store. Get them while they’re hot. I have more to list than what I have posted just now…. so keep checking in with me.

Hope everyone is doing well this month. I am looking forward to days with longer daylight hours. Be well.

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!

FYI to those who might be interested: more lots of wool shall be posted soon on my Etsy shop in the next day or so. I have wool for needle felting, hand dyed Perendale locks and some Romney roving to post.

I have some lovely red fibers for Valentines Day. Meow.
Cheers for now!

I have continued to add new offerings to my Etsy shop.  I’ve more to dye, photograph and list still. Check back with me from time to time.  It all takes time!

I watched the swearing-in ceremony today — it was such a high point!   Hope everyone is staying warm and cozy. Cheers!

Colour Blending Fibers: Hackle & Diz

Colour Blending Fibers: Hackled & Diz

 Now that it is a new year, hello 2009, one of my goals is to break out of set “fiber arts behaviors”.  I started doing this by spinning yarn using my various drop spindles.  Spinning with a drop spindle is so rewarding.  So digging it. Why did I just let them sit there for so long? Anyhoo,  I recommend everyone interested in the fiber arts giving spindling a whirl.

I’ve also been playing with my blending hackle and diz.. For so long I just let them sit in a corner. Why? Well,   not any more!  I’ve decided that 2009 is going to be all about exploration and learning — breaking out of old habits.  I’ve decided to challenge myself  — try new spinning technique, explore natural dyeing more and try weaving with an inkle loom.  So HELLO 2009!  Hello to new horizons! Goodbye 2008!
