Happy New Year Everyone...sure is a cold start, but glad the days are getting longer
I've been down with a cold/fever for a few days...feeling a bit better today...but still a few random sneezes.

Hibernating with homemade soup, tea, Netflix and knitting a new sweater...a re-run of one I made over 15 years ago.
That one was a cotton/wool blend.
This time 100% wool in my favorite olivey green!
Thanks for stopping by...take care...stay warm...be well ~ L

I didn't have time to take photos, but Cathy over at Orange Sink came, she's a great photographer...see her post here

The past few days have been spent unpacking and putting things back together in the studio.
It's tight here...I've still got boxes of my folks stuff to sort through...they are filling up our very limited storage...
but...I'm making-do;)

Last evening I began listing my new, Hand-Plant-Dyed wool in the Etsy shop.
I'll being listing more wool over the next few days!


Dyed in small batches, these gorgeous fat quarters are truly one of a kind and won't be listed on the main website, just in the Etsy shop...or in person at the studio.


The studio is open by appointment. I'm still not able to have "regular" hours.


We got a bit of frost overnight...glad I picked the last of the peppers



...it was an amazing plant yielding over 20 peppers



Some of theses are tiny compared to the ones I've been eating this past month...but they are still sweet and delicious!



I'll be back soon...
I've been invited to teach at Rug Week 2018 in Sauder Village...I'll share all the details in the next post!

Thanks for visiting ~ Laurie

Celebrating Labor Day in the backyard playing with plant dyes

Trying to find my "groove" after nearly 3 years of care-taking...

Wishing you all a happy day ~ Laurie
