Seed planting time!!!
I am all ready to roll, well, almost. First I need all my little pots and seed starting mix which is up north currently, but we will be going to get them in a week or so, as well as my new plant table that hubby built for me. Since we moved last Spring, I lost my big window sill in the living room that held all the plant trays in the warm sunshine.
So hubby put together a long, tall, narrow table made from 2 x 4’s and plywood (very elegant looking, just you wait and … Read more...
Yesterday I posted a recipe using avocados, and in that recipe I said to save the pits and skins for later use. I guess I *should* have been more specific, but I thought it would be interesting to see how many people would be wracking their brains wondering what the heck would you use them for.

Which is absolutely spot on.
Over a year in the making, I have finally completed a project that started with roving from sheep fleece, spun it into yarn, then wove it into a blanket.
This is my ‘practice’ blanket. I have another one planned for the alpaca I am still spinning, but this was a test to see if my handspun can hold up to the high tension requirements of loom weaving. It is comprised of rough, lumpy, bumpy yarn that were mostly spun a year ago, which I then spent last summer experimenting with natural dyes and … Read more...
Happy New Year to everyone! Yes, it has been awhile, but how many of you had the time to try and keep up a blog AND do all things Christmas-y? Baking, cooking, shopping, wrapping, visiting, etc?
That is my defence and I am sticking to it.
I can also add spinning, knitting and weaving into the above as many of you who follow me on Facebook can attest to as I regularly post pics of FO’s or WIP’s (Finished Objects or Work in Progress) to brighten the days of those cruising on FB.
Now that the holidays are fading in … Read more...
