I wove the first mug rug using handspun Lincoln yarn that I dyed in a bright blue, spring green and a sunny yellow, alternating that yarn with a sunny yellow rug wool.
Yesterday my son and I decided to put on our hiking boots and drive up Bogus Basin Road to the ski resort to do some hiking. We passed so many avid cyclists pedaling up the mountain, which would be an incredible workout at it's quite a climb to the top, and as we were driving up the mountain, we noticed that it was getting cloudier and colder. The temperature dropped from the 60's (16 C) in Boise to 42 (6 C) at the parking lot up at the ski lodge. Brrr. I was wishing that I had a wool sweater or a fleece with me, that's for sure, but five minutes into the hike on trail number 91 my heart was beating like a drum, my sunglasses were fogging up, and I was no longer cold. We were passed on the trail by runners, other hikers, and many mountain bikers. I love Idaho! It's such an awesome place to live if you like being active outdoors. There were wildflowers all over the place which are so lovely to see and I've tried to identify them by name.
|Western Virgin's Bower, Clematis occidentalis|
|Idaho Bluebells, Mertensia campanulata|
|Sandberg's Biscuitroot, Lomatium sandbergii|
Sam and Max had a blast running the trail together-don't you love those happy faces?
And I think that Seb had a great time too-
Seb noticed something in the bushes close by-
The views were outstanding-
And you could see the low clouds rolling in-
Here's hoping that you have time for fiber/fabric today,
