We Have Eggs!

Thursday's surprise...our first chicken eggs! The chickens are just 6 months old, and it looks like the buffs are going to be great daily layers. Not sure about the silkies, yet...a few eggs are smaller and have faint speckles, but all of them are brown. Hurray, Hurray! Fresh eggs every day!


This is my new (to me) rigid heddle loom. It is a LeClerc Bergere that a neighbor had. I gave it a little scrubbing, a fresh coat of varnish, and voila! A beautiful addition to my yarn yearnings!

A beginner project...cotton hand towels in plain weave.

A Room With A View....Of Yarn

Most people would call this a retreat, a master suite, even a nursery or study area. Not me. It's become MY room! The place where all my favorite fiber friends reside.

Spinning Wheel, Loom, Sewing Machine, Baskets full of Yarn, Cabinets full of Fabric - It's my own personal craft store, and a little piece of paradise!
