I haven’t forgotten my blog… I just have be thankfully very busy with my sewing work that I have had to let my blog take a back seat for a little bit. My sewing helps to pay our bills.
Frocket/pockets have taken off and boxes upon boxes have come through my sewing studio.
The fun stuff I’ve worked on, which I always make time for, have been in the line of re purpose and updating existing garments and spinning. In fact my DH and I went to SAFF near Hendersonville, NC last weekend. SAFF is Southeastern Animal and Fiber Festival. OH MY GOODNESS…. it was awesome! I was overwhelmed at the ….. I can’t find the large enough word to describe the event.
I am learning to spin on this great invention called the spinolyn. Usually a drop whorl or spindle I get all messed up and make a mess. With this neat invention you can sit and spin and have terrific results. This is Susan from Bella Luna Fibers… She sells her lovely soft Finn (type of sheep) fleece in all sorts of lovely colors . You can also see past her booth and see all the other vendors on two levels. Oh and did I mention this is one of 5 barns!!! My dear Husband was my pack mule for the day,carrying all my purchases. I could have stayed the weekend and next year I might. I didn’t take any of the workshops… but that is a must do in the future!
It was an animal festival and they sold my heart. Do you know that Mama Alpacas hum to their babies?? It was so sweet!I was forbidden to buy an animal! There was this sweet angora rabbit that even my Husband was taken with… but we said “no!” The rest of our weekend was in apple orchards and vineyards. North Carolina in the mountains is just wonderful!
- We have as many pictures of barns as we do of anything else. One of these days you will be reading about a barn raising!!
- Thank you for checking in on me, and I’ll post more often with projects. I’m mainly working on Christmas gift which I can’t post about now, but here’s a few sneak peaks….Happy Fall Ya’ll!
