breaking the silence of the lambs

A lot has happened around here in the past weeks.

The family has been to New Orleans for the fantastic wedding of our niece Elizabeth and her new husband Justin - check out the bathroom decorations!

We celebrated the woodfloors in our home with a sock party (loads of yummy food included).

After the open house/studio tour and one more holiday basar, I'm getting ready and creating as much as possible for the craft fair at Hip Stitch, Friday, 12/4, from 6.00 to 9.00 pm. and Saturday, 12/5, from 10.00 am. to 5.00 pm.

I have spun a lot of yarn, some handdyed, mainly to make more fingerless mittens, that are always a bestseller.
Another new product, that I've added to my "show stash" are zippered pouches. For those I love to use high quality fabrics and combine them with vintage ribbons, linen, whatever seems suitable.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving this pumpkin colored lovelyness has been added to my so far Koigu-free stash and I am truely thrilled!! Thank you soso much again, Amber!

And thank you to all my friends for being, who you are, and for being wonderful friends!

Happy Thanksgiving!

coming up

I don't like blogging without photos, however since my pc harddrive died and email adresses are lost at this point I need to invite my friends via blog and hope you all read this!

I recently launched my small artsy crafty business named "sheep on a spring" (--no, again, NOT "on a STRing", people, get reading glasses!). I plan to produce more and start an etsy business, while participating in local craftshows as I have in the past.
At the same time one of my dreams is coming true and I will be a participating artist in the first (annual?!) studio tour in High Desert. I am truly thrilled and hope you have a chance to stop by at our house on Saturday between 10.00 and 5.00! Please drop me an email, if you need directions!
In addition to the handknits, handspun yarns and dyed rovings, that you might know, there will also be some more sewed items, where I love to combine high quality novelty fabrics with vintage or recycled fabrics or related items.

All together there will be a nice variety of handmade things to please yourself or that would make lovely christmas gifts!

Hope to see you then!
