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!
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:
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:
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!
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!
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.
