Friday's Photo



Two groups of pictures that I have been working on occasionally merge.   For the sake of identification, I've named one 'small worlds / fairy gardens' and the other ' here nor there'.  I was working on one of the small worlds when this popped up where I hadn't been expecting to see it.  Here nor there.  More abstract than most, it captured my attention.   


I ran across this on Facebook today.  It was so incredibly joyful that I had to share it.

I hope it brings a smile to your face, joy to your heart and your own memories of jumping waves.

Weekending the Fiber Festival of New England.  We worked and had fun.  We love being part of it.



FFNE was Ball and Skein's last show for 2015, but until the truck is unloaded, the season's not over, and  the truck is still full.  

Funny how I can almost fool myself into thinking that 'last show of the season'  indicates a break.   That extra week the calendar gave up between the last two shows get subtracted at this end.   Tomorrow, after the truck is unpacked and the displays are stored in the order that they'll be removed in January (the next show),  another section of the warehouse will be packed for the truck. Boxes and boxes of red ribbon. 

Ten Minutes


Summer is just a memory and I haven't showed you what I spun on my morning walks.  Cat wrangling,  if you will remember.   A week or so ago, I plied it and put it aside.  You'll have to wait to see it on another Tuesday post.   The weather is holding and mornings still include wrangling and I needed another project.  Look at that gorgeous fall colored silk.  How could I not spin it now.  It reflects the last gasp of color in the hills, the tamamacs.
