What I’ve been up to

After classes ended, I thought I would be less busy.  I suppose I am, but it’s hardly the bon-bons and leisure reading I envisioned.  Okay, I didn’t envision bon-bons, more like fresh strawberries.  Which seem to be in just as short supply as my free time.

Classes have started back up, but thank goodness I’m only the instructor this time around instead of being a student, too.

I’ll show you what I’ve been up to during the radio silence.

First, I attended our guild’s annual spinning retreat in New Harmony.  I can’t get enough of that town.

Harmony

Hand-dyed yarns

Hand-dyed fabric

Weaving

And now, for the stuff I did while there.
Fiber Optic merino-tencel gradient - Bitter Lime to Rose

This you may remember from the Greencastle Haul. Jenny from the Blog bought this for me as a birthday present. And it became this loveliness.

Fiber Optic Bitter Lime to Rose skein

The other thing that has been occupying my time is all sorts of gardening/flowers.  Don’t believe me?

And that doesn’t include the Cordon Bleu crepe myrtle or the pink dogwood.
