A room with a view...of yarn that is.

What a day! Beautiful sunshine and a back porch with a view of handspun yarn and hand painted roving.

With Dazzle Daze quickly approaching I have found myself in a mad rush of crafting. Yesterday, I finished 8 batches of painted roving and handspun 2 more skeins of yarn. The view from the front is actually a little better, since the sun is shining right on the colors. The yarn is all from ArtsFest. I have about two more batches of roving to finish spinning and then all the ArtsFest 2009 yarn will be complete. Once these beauties dry, I will start posting them for sale on those that haven't sold yet, will be on display (of course for sale) during Dazzle Daze (Nov 19-21). There will also be some ArtsFest 2009 felted soap for sale.

Now, I'm just waiting on Mr. Sun to hurry up and dry the roving so I can get to spinning up these new colors:

Take a peek at this new shiny, sparkly handspun yarn:

I plied it with a metallic rainbow thread, making it sparkly and fun. I absolutely adore the end outcome, plan to see many more sparkly handspuns in the future.
Happy belated Halloween! Hope none of you were attacked by zombie football players!

You just can't find a better view than this one! hehe...well, maybe in combination with my mountain view! I'm a fiber and fabric junkie and I freeform crochet as well as normal stuff. :0)

I found your blog via was doing a review of your blog.

I so happen to have for my blog post today a poster that you will love and may already have!

Keep up the fabulous spinning...I'm in the Smokies or else I'd try to come to your little festival. Good luck and sell a bunch!!

Scatter Bliss,
