The Week in Projects: August 20, 2017

It’s been a busy week this week! Let’s get started, shall we?

We had a team building outing at the day job and I won a large prize!

I won an important prize!

Apparently you needed at least two tickets to win the prize. That was kind of misleading. It’s ok. I won other (smaller) prizes.

Friday, Brenda of B n C Craft Boutique went with me to the Michigan Fiber Festival. It was her first ever and my first in several years. I’m a little embarrassed to post my haul, but let’s just say I had FUN. *grin*

I did knock an item off my shopping list…I am now the proud owner of a Russian supported spindle:

There was a whole lotta nyet in the beginning

Brenda isn’t a spinner (yet), but as a thank you for putting up going with me, I wanted to spin some yarn for her. She picked out these fluffies:

Step away from the fluffies and no one gets hurt

I added some extra fiber to make sure I had enough for a scarf and let the fiber dictate what it was going to become. This is probably the fastest 300+ yards I’ve ever spun up. Ever. I can’t wait to see what she does with it!

It got better after its bath!

I’ve been seeing bright rainbows paired with neutrals and I’m a little intrigued by this. We found a lady selling chunks of fiber for a buck (buy 10, get the 11th free! Ok, twist my arm!) so I picked up a neon rainbow and a neutral. This is going to be lovely to spin!

These fibery bits are total crack…

And last but not least, Brenda has graciously made these towel sets just for Sleeping Pond Studio! The colors, prints, and handiwork are simply wonderful! They have to be seen to be appreciated! You can buy them on the Sleeping Pond Facebook page.


That’s all for now. Stay tuned for what’s new in the studio next week!

  1. Won’t be too much longer and I’ll be done with the scarf I’ve been working on. I only shared a small section of it with Jaime so far. I’m keeping her in suspense. And I know it’s killing her. LOL
