I need a vacation......

Honestly, I am trying to think of something clever to say to entertain and put you in awe of my cleverness but I got nothing.........


I do, however have my samples packed and ready for the Phatfiber October box. 100% Mulberry Silk hand dyed by me.Some romney top has been dyed, braided and labeled in preparation for Northern Lamb and Wool.....
and a few samples are ready for a knitting convention I was asked to contribute to......
but as you can see I am still working on it. Everything needs to head to the post office tomorrow because they say I am leaving for vacation on Monday. (I ask you, if you are bringing 5 of your kids and driving 11 hours.......is it still a vacation?) I am coming back home EARLY Thursday morning so that I can get home in time to milk mama cow. I just couldn't bribe anyone to milk for me 4 nights in a row.

In parting, above is a pic of my handspun for the spin to knit along on Rav. Have a great days guys......I think I am going to take a nap.......

How crafty can you be?

This is why I can't get anything done! I have been rug hooking at night.......


Doing hand embroidery for about 10 mins each day (these towels are for my kitchen).....

Sewing when I get the chance........


And spinning at least every Monday. Too many irons in the fire? I haven't even listed the dyeing or the quilting (not to mention the cheesemaking, the photography......) Yeah, I get bored easily :)

On Ravelry we are doing a Mitten Spin toKnit Along. I chose this lovely pattern. If you are of a mind, come by and join us!

Stupid title huh? Well, it's been one of those days. My brain is fried! Let's tour my swap package anyway! Above you see the spindle :) I haven't tried spinning with it yet as it has been a little crazy but it sure is purty. (She also included felting fiber and needles)

4 oz of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Roving,
Awwww, a cute tape measure......
Yummy candy and yummy lip gloss
Ooooh shiny stitch markers......I can never have enough. I think I am addicted. No really......
And this, courtesy of my sis, is my hand dyed superwash roving in the Tiger Lilly colorway, spun and knitted. Not too shabby huh? ( This colorway has been sold out but there's plenty more in the shop!)
Well, I should be in bed but I have cheddar cheese curds draining for another 15 minutes or so.....
Good night all!
