Gotta Get Moving!

A Belated Happy St. Patty's Day from the boys. Mama Deb bought them Irish shirts for the day. Brady's says "Irish Girls Love Me", Austin says "Irish U were a Leprechaun" and Drew's says "You're so Lucky I'm not your kid". They had a fun day in their shirts. Except Brady liked yelling about how he did NOT like Irish girls.

Jeanetta came over yesterday and was very inspiring and encouraging for me to get a move on! Toad Suck Daze is just around the corner and I have to have a very large inventory for the three day event. So here is what's on the drying rack:

I painted two yarns and one roving. Jeanetta also painted one roving, and I let Brady paint a small one ounce bit. He is just so darn hard to say no to.

After Jeanetta left, I was still in a painting mood so I did a true variegated yarn. With spring in mind I dab and dotted my way through the whole skein in magenta, blue, green, and a darker magenta, which looked a bit purple. I also left a bit of white, it is always hard for me to do that. I absolutely adore it! I can not wait to reskein it to see the variations all mixed up.

I am also reading a new book. Craft Inc. by Meg Mateo Ilasco. I am hoping it will help me format my business a bit more and fine tune all the details I have been putting on the back burner.
And last, but surely not is what is on the spinning wheel:
The painted roving was called "Deep Calls to Deep" and was actually listed on Etsy for a bit, before I couldn't resist the urge to spin it myself. The handspun yarn will most likely have the same name, unless I am struck with a different inspiration.

That's it for me now! I do not foresee having another productive day today. We just got our puppy dog, Daisy, back from the vet. She was spayed and is resting quite peacefully. Being the overprotective mama (of my pup) I have been watching her like a hawk. Until next time, happy crafting! ♥

Let me know how that book is. I've been dying to figure out what I can do to make money and also work for myself. I'm sure it would have to be a few assorted things, but I'd like for my hobby to be one of them.

I saw that book advertised - in Country Living? Give us all a review when you're done! :)
