Hello, and good morning!~
Today I am joining with Ginny at Little Things for her September Yarn-Along. Here are a few of the things I’m working on, and a shawl I did finish (hurray!)
At the moment, on my wheel I have some basic white yarn I’m spinning up for some natural dyeing projects I’m thinking about. As those late summer/early autumn dye flowers like goldenrod and tickseed fill the fields around my home, I’m hoping to get some yarn spun up and some muslin bought so that I can capture some of their lovely color for future projects.
The roving I’m using to spin with is from my friend Lavonne, who’s shop you can find HERE. Her roving is my very favorite….its a dream to spin up (you can actually read an article I wrote HERE featuring a photo of her on her beautiful Montana sheep farm) and it comes in a variety of delicious natural shades, but I digress (as usual!)…..
This shawl is my most recent finished work, and I am so proud of it! I love how it came out. It started out as a Tess D’Urberville shawl, but towards the end of it I added a little fanciness with some eyelet and a picot bindoff. I want to do another one of these shawls…..its pretty easy and very pretty. I love how this particular yarn knit up too with the colors… The yarn is called “Painted Sky” and I got it at Get Stitchin’ in Tulsa, OK.
This is my current living room set-up….it’s amazing how out of hand things can get, haha, when you’re working on something! I’ve got a little quilt runner I started a long time ago on a quilt frame that I recently found at an estate sale (Oh, I love a good estate sale!) it was a steal ($6!) and perhaps it will motivate me to work on more quilting in the colder months when I’m ready to cuddle up and work on comfort projects.
The fabric in this little runner is very special to me, because I bought them at Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts when I was there last. So its not only beautiful old timey looking fabric, it is a bit of a keepsake of a beloved New England adventure! It’s set far too long, and now I’m ready to get it done and perhaps work on something else (perhaps something done with autumn dye projects? we shall see!)
And so, that’s one of well….many, many projects I have going around the house 😉 it’s always something! 😉 that’s how I operate….
What are you working on this month? Are you also looking forward to chilly autumn days where you can create things?
Thank you for your visit today!~
