We've been struggling with the flu
the past couple of weeks.
We thought that maybe,
just maybe,
we'd make it through the flu season without catching it,
but no.
We're feeling better now,
but there hasn't been much energy
to be creative lately.

A bit of spinning-
some lovely Polwarth/silk 
that is simply lovely to spin.
It's shiny and soft,
making it easily flow over my fingers as I spin.

A bit more spinning,
again with Polwarth wool/Tussah silk,
only in a different colorway.

I love the subtle color changes in this combed top,
don't you?
I thought that I'd spin singles of each,

and then ply them with each other to see how that will look.
A special yarn for a hat or a scarf or ?

I'd like to share another hand carved spoon
that my husband,
created out of a chunk of walnut firewood.

Baby Bella turns six months this week!
She has a special reflective jacket
for early morning walks,
and each morning she's vibrating with happy energy.



  1. Zuerst wünsche ich dir und deinen Lieben noch gute Besserung. Diesen Winter hatten mich Grippe oder Erkältung gleich dreimal erwischt. Jetzt kommt der Frühlimg und du kannst wieder fleissig deine Projekte verwiklichen. Die Polwarth wool/Tussah silk, Fasern gefallen mir sehr, aber auch die zarten Farben sind toll. Ich bin gespannt was du daraus zauberst.
    Viel Freude weiterhin an Bella und liebe Grüsse

  2. ...und ja nochmals:
    Auch der Löffel aus Nussbaum ist so schön. Da hätte ich so meine Vorstellung, für was ich den brauchen könnte. :-). So etwas fehlt mir noch...
    Liebe Grüsse, Brigitte

  3. Sorry to hear that you have both been unwell - flu really takes it out of you. Fortunately we have not suffered for some years and we do get a flu injection every autumn. Lovely yarns as always and another beautiful spoon by Marshall. Will you be busy in the garden now? Do you have much land there? Anyway, sending best wishes. xx

  4. So sorry to hear you have had the flu, I hope you are feeling much better . Nice to see you have done some spinning , the results are stunning . Marshall is so talented as well , the spoon is wonderful . Take care .

  5. It's been another week, so I hope you're all better, now!
