Fall Rovings

Today I played with rovings in fall tones. I used my 2 step process to dye the rovings, dyeing them once, and then using shibori techniques overdyeing them in a gentle color bath. I cannot tell you how much I love the richness of the colors. I also love the fact, that each batch is unique. Each day I dye fibers is a unique experience for me.



This week has been a busy week for me, as Miss SockPixie left to study in France for the next three years. I will miss my dear friend with whom I shared so many special moments talking about her dreams or mine. I am adjusting...

When your daughter returns in 3 weeks, your conversations will be richer for her experiences. I wish her a happy and fulfilling trip, and for you - her speedy and safe return.

Dear Sharon,

I selfishly wish it was 3 weeks. 3 years seems like a really long, but I am sure will just zoom by.

It is always hard to send your child so far away but she will treasure the experience forever.

Stop by and see what I am doing with the laceweight I purchased from you.
