Creative News From My House
This is the first post of 2016!
There's something about a new year that makes one think
about fresh possibilities and perhaps setting ambitious goals.
Last year I set a goal of cycling 2000 miles
on my bike and I almost made it
closing the year out with
almost 1600 miles.
That feels so good to write!!
I had a surprise waiting for me in my mailbox a couple of weeks ago.
Lin sent me a lovely, creative Christmas postcard.
Thanks so much for thinking of me, Lin!
Two days ago I finished weaving the 8/2 cotton warp that was on my vintage
Harrisville loom (happy dance.)
The weave structure was M's and O's,
the project was washcloths,
I used a variety of wefts for this
as I wanted to clean out my
weaving hutch where I store my cones of yarn.
So the wefts varied
from hemp to linen to cotton.
And I finally finished weaving something!!
I also finished some baby quilts made from vintage sheets
that were dropped off at the local
May they bring comfort to someone
I've been slowly knitting some socks from handspun BFL

On the spinning side of things,
I'm spinning some hand-dyed BFL
from Frabjous Fibers in the Balsam colorway.
I thought I'd leave you with an early morning photo
that I took while sitting with my family
on the Pine Creek lift on
the backside of Bogus.
This year the skiing has been a blast due
to the wonderful powder
and my knee has held together
so life is good :-)
Here's hoping you have time for fabric/fiber today,
