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 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

Quiet...but still here...

the days pass so much TO do...and very little time for what I WANT to do...
like stop here to say HELLO...I'm still here!

A brief update on why I've been so quiet online...
The day before I packed the car to head off to teach at From Our Hands in Ohio, we moved my parents to a nursing home.

I felt like a bad Mom pushing her kids out on the curb at the daycare door, but their name came up on the list and we couldn't pass it up.
I had an absolutely wonderful time teaching and meeting everyone! It was great to finally meet several longtime web clients in person!
Since my return, I've been consumed by getting Mom and Dad settled and getting their home ready for sale.

I'm still processing orders from the Website and Etsy Shop everyday, but haven't had the chance to put my new books that I introduced in Ohio up yet.

There IS light at the end of the tunnel and hopefully in a week or two I'll be able to get the sites updated.
Wishing you all a lovely and creative day ~ Laurie

Happy Groundhog's Day...

If I were a groundhog, I'd be hunkering down
