Handspun Yarns here at http://TerraBellaSpun.etsy.com are starting to pile up! Thick and thin yarns as well as a few art yarns. New yarns will be listed this week sometime~ Be sure to visit the shop to see what's new.
I just got back from a two-day trip to Vermont and up-state NY. I went to Vermont to visit a friend's wonderful fiber mill (Hampton Mills, Richmond, Vermont). Then we traveled to Burlington and spent a great day there, shopping and hanging out by the lake. From there, we traveled to Lake George, NY to spend the night and enjoy a little relaxation. I do have to say, spinning is such a part of me that for the first time ever, I think I was in withdrawal. I mean I was totally craving fiber and a wheel. Usually I take my drop spindle with me, but this time I only took some knitting (obviously that wasn't enough!)
So last night, I was back on my wheel, spinning a beautiful thick & thin yarn........................I love what I do ~
Although I dread the long winters here in New England, I do love the fall, and I can always tell when it's coming because the orders start to build. Orders have been starting to roll in, so I've been working on custom orders for a few weeks now. I do try to spin up a yarn for the shop here and there in between so I can keep the shop filled. At times, when you look at the shop, and it seems like I'm not really adding many yarns, trust me... I'm spinning! I'm working on special orders ;)
Okay so here are photos of a few very yummy special orders...
Wow! It's been sooooo long since I've blogged. I really think I should start blogging again on a regular basis. I've been so busy and caught up in this whirlwind of sorting and dyeing fibers, spinning, custom orders, packing orders, facebook, twitter & trying to enjoy the very limited summer time we have, that I've abandoned my blog. (And this is not the first time)
So, once again, am going to try and keep up with my blog!
Today I came across an article that I thought was great for everyone and wanted to share it with you. If you are feeling a bit "stressed" lately and need a way to de-stress & bring some relaxation into your spirit, then you may want to grab yourself a scrumptiously soft skein of yarn and start creating! http://www.thirdage.com/hobbies-projects/knitting-crocheting-proved-to-reduce-stress
Even if you've never knitted or crocheted, maybe it's time to try!
