Actually, it's been fine because I have used the time to start preparing for the Kentucky Wool Festival that will be happening this coming weekend. At this very moment, I'm really glad that no one can come in to the farm because my house looks like a wool explosion has taken place. I've been dyeing roving and yarn and spinning and weighing and pricing and just generally making one glorious mess. (I am so looking forward to having a studio/work space where I can keep all my supplies and equipment together and can leave work in progress. Construction is supposed to start in about a month.....but that's a topic for later.) I'll be sharing a space with Sylvia Yawn of Shepherd's Place Farm (sadly, no website) and hope to see many fiber enthusiast while I am there.
This business of dyeing roving and yarn in colors that other people might want to buy is somewhat challenging for me. I'm an autumn person and rusty reds, olivey greens, browns and muted golds are what I go for every time. So, I'm having to stretch myself a little here to come up with some different palettes. Otherwise, I could end up bringing everything I take to sell right back home with me! (Which, if it's all in my colors, wouldn't be such a bad thing!)
Man, that is a...um...mess. Your yarn and roving looks great though!ReplyDelete
Lovely colors to cast my eyes upon! Although I must admit, your favorite palette is my least favorite. Glad you tried to dye some for the likes of me!ReplyDelete
Oh you are so lucky to have a studio in sight. My house is always a mess of my art. I cover the dining room and living room with all my materials. I need to have them in sight at all times! So sorry to hear about the damage to your land, but a couple of days home bound would be a dream come true for me.ReplyDelete
