Stitches is now a memory, it was a lot of fun. Now it is time to regroup. Right after Stitches I had to travel to a meeting ( for my day job) in the mid west, then it was on to Providence to visit number 2 daughter who is in college there. She is studying at the Rhode Island School of Design and also taking language at Brown University. I visited her from Friday until Sunday, which is the perfect amount of time. We were still enjoying each other's company when I left. As my mom used to say: "Fish and family both go bad after 3 days!" It was fun going to her studio for the Senior Studio open house, shopping, and having a real casual dinner party for her friends on Saturday night. They are a great bunch of creative young adults and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them. No photos though, my daughter hates when I take photos. Shortly after I returned home, I had to have foot and ankle surgery so now I am off of work and taking it easy with my foot elevated and scooting around on my knee scooter, shown in the photo.
Presently, I am suffering though spinning and dyeing withdrawl. I miss my wheels, but I have taken out one of the spindles and started working on some beautiful yak and silk natural dyed roving that I have had in my stash for ages. I am also finishing up some projects, I finished the seed stitch cowl done in super chunky Twisted Sunshine merino/alpaca/silk, the baby kimono made of handspun and a crazy cowl made out of art yarns. Photos to follow....
News flash.....I have joined the Phat Fiber crew and will soon be announcing the reopening of my etsy shop and a giveaway contest. I will also be announcing the winner of the Stitches give away, once I am nimble enough to access the contest info. Unfortunately, I placed it where I can not access in my present condition.
