I think that every girl who sews ought to have a stash, so when I found out that my dear friend Ruth didn't really have one I just had to help her out! Even though sometimes it's hard to part with your stash, this has been so much fun and I have found a lot of stuff I forgot I had! Plus it's always fun to help someone else get started on their own stash!!!!


We are moving soon and I have some items that I would really love to sell before we do! I will probably be listing new items as I continue sorting through stuff! Thank you for looking!

What I have been spinning!

Lately I have been working on a Corriedale- pink silk blend and even though pink is not my favorite color it is turning out so pretty that I am totally in love with it!


Much to my surprise and delight I found another farmgirl near to me and we were able to get together last Friday and visit! After the first moment, it was like we had always known each other! Some of you have already seen Carol's pics on her blog at! Here are a few more!

She brought the nicest bag of goodies including lemons from her tree that are so good and the most wonderful sea salt scrub that smells wonderful and does amazing things for rough dry skin and a lovely pack of cards that she makes herself! We had the best time and will be getting again together soon!

What a wonderful surprise!

Last week I stopped by my friend Kathleen's blog at yesteryearembroideries and she had a picture of this lovely little butterfly she had embroidered with some silk thread I had sent her! The next day I received a card in the mail from Kathleen and much to my surprise, there was the little butterfly inside! Kathleen, thank you so much! I just love it!

Silk Thread

Here are some new pictures of silk thread I have been working on! I am hoping to get some listed on etsy soon. I will not even speculate as to when soon will be because every time I think I will get something accomplished, the universe seems to know and goes and dumps a boat load of chaos on me! Why is it that it never seems to fail that I could sit and do nothing for hours, but the minute I go to spin yarn or sew, everybody needs something or the phone rings. At least I can say that life is never dull at my house!
