Where has Time Gone!!

Well I am back from my fun and exciting trip to PA, where I got to visit my dear friend and fiber pal Heather!! My, my, oh my, what fun was had by all! We felted, dyed, spun and just plain had oodles of fun!! I haven't laughed so hard and long and so much since I don't even know when!! Her daughters were the best and such beautiful girls as well!! I offered to take them all home with me! Then there were the 2 little kitties she has that were so cute too!! To say the least it was a very grand time and I hope to do that again if she'll still have me!! hehehe!! Thanks dear it was a true blast!!!

Now I am still working on Mary Ann Moss's class Full Tilt Boogie and I hope to start making some fun journals very soon (starting this weekend!!) to put in the etsy shop, as well as spin and I have loads of wool to wash and dye so there will soon be pics of all that as well!! I have some pics to share of my trip, a couple of journal pages I did in an old book I am using and a pic of some fab silk I received from another fiber friend, Omi!! I will be back when the sun comes out so I can post some of my garden that despite the crappy rain and cool temps and no sun is still seeming to continue to thrive!! I am happy for that!! All my pics are on FB and flickr so take a peek!! Be back soon with more news and pics etc!! Till then have a great weekend wherever you may be!

Fun Day

I am so happy I got my garden all planted now, with the new raised bed my hubby made for the tomatoes and peppers and all is mulched and looking good! Now to have him keep it all alive while I am away for a bit!! hehehe!
I also took pics of the silk scarves I rust dyed Saturday at Beth's and pics of my journal pages I did while taking an online class with Roben Marie Smith! I can't wait to get the journal covers made and more pages. I then plan to list them in my etsy shop! So stop back in and see when they are all done! Each one will be different! These are only a few pics I took below, all the pics can be found on my flickr site or on FB too, see the links on the side!

Fun Times

While I was busy visiting and just having fun, Sally took some awesome pics of our dye day over at my friend Beth's farm on Saturday! You can see them here on Sally's blog.
My scarves are also sitting in plastic waiting to be unveiled tomorrow, to see how the rusty things dyed them! I will post pics as soon as I get them out and rinsed! Sally also dyed her felted sweaters in the natural dye pots, they turned out great! It was a fun day!

Tomorrow I will finally get my tomatoes and peppers planted in the new raised bed my hubby made for me and I will finally have my garden all planted! Now to catch up on my weeding!
New pics of the garden, journal pages and all tomorrow! Stop back by!!

Look Another Post!!

Well now that I have a blog, I guess I should add a couple more pics for you to see some NEW stuff I am playing with!
While Sally was here we did a couple of nites of some fun journaling pages to get me started again in doing my journals and try to have some pages ready to actually journal in! I am also working on new pages to create some new journals to hopefully sell in my etsy shop once I return from my little trip to PA to visit my dear friend Heather! The pages and covers will be quite fun and colorful. I learned to create them by taking a class with Roben-Marie Smith which was quite fun to do!! I am also taking the new class MaryAnn Moss is doing ....Full Tilt Boogie..... so watch out when I return I will not only have lots of fiber goodies but hope to have fun new journals and who knows what else......felting stuff too I'm sure once hanging out with Heather rubs off as well!! so Lots of new stuff coming up this summer so come along for the ride and see what's coming up!!

Look I Have NEW BLOG!!!

Since I am leaving for PA Wed I won't get a shop update quite yet, but I will once I return!!! So come back and see what I have and hope you like the new look!!!
