" One day is spun in gold..
Another day seems red hot or icy cold..
Passing storms clear the air and change the tide..
Each day a new sun!"

Good morning my dear friends...

I have been away from the blog universe for a while, the past several months.....My inspiration to write has been at a standstill...

With that said, good things are happening in my world...

Earlier this year, I found out that I am a new grandmother to be...Her name is gonna be Caroline Elise :-)

Caroline is due later this month...Happy dance!!!

I meet with my two best friends often! Together we can talk the day away!

I am learning and practicing some fun skills with my drop spindling and crochet...

I have also learned a new lesson or two about Photo Shop and logos..I launched my new photography website..

All in all, a good break!

A new creation begins with inspiration, a dream...........

Talking takes inspiration to a new level

So does experimentation

And then just do...

I love the smell, the colors and softness of wool top and roving...The yumminess puts me in a good place!

"Coral Clouds" being spun into a single using the Z twist, my drop spindle spinning clockwise...

"Coral Clouds" two singles plied together , wound,  ready for a 20 minute soak in hot water....

Once this yarn is dry, it can be made into a project ....

I always start my creative journey with coffee

I learned some new crochet stitches this summer..
Some of those stitches are used in this project pictured...Shawl in a Ball is the name of the yarn I am using..
 "Community Coral" is the colorway..

About halfway finished

  Do you have a favorite way to wear a triangle shawl ?                                                                

I gave this shawl to my sweet daughter in law, Melissa, for her birthday

May each and every one of you be blessed with  happy Happy inspirations!
