It’s That Day

And some time to reflect and relax on a late afternoon hike –


Little Bits

It’s been a while once again, but life has been full of happenings. The realization that we have moved has finally set in, and those eerie feelings and awkward premonitions have finally diminished. Life is good, I can’t complain…

I saw this on Lolly’s blog, and wanted one for myself. It’s a wordle word cloud, full of little bits about myself….

Colorful Colorado

We all arrived safely on Friday evening after three long days of driving… the cats did amazing and we are completely and utterly exhausted!

I always smile when I see the welcome sign when you enter Colorado. Colorful – we like colorful over here :)

Welcome To Colorful Colorado

Latest Spin

I returned my rented wheel last week to Iron Horse Farm. It was sad – but lucky for me, I’ll be moving to the home of Schacht and Shuttles, Spindles and Skeins. Wheels and spinning accessories will be plentiful, I am sure!

My latest spinning project that was gifted to my cousin last night –

There is approximately 150 meters of DK/worsted weight BFL yarn. I still think I am underestimating yardage for some reason, but I measured my niddy noddy and its a touch over 5 meters (which is what I thought it was). I spun this from 4.1 oz of Freckle Face Fibers BFL roving in the Garland colorway. She has some beautiful stuff in her shop; lots of rich jewel tones that turn into squishy yumminess!

I’m getting better. I remembered to take some pictures of the fiber!

This is my last post before the move on Wednesday! I’m literally sitting her dripping wet, taking a break from running boxes down the stairs. Thanks for all the well wishes… I’ll catch you all on the mountain-side!

Packing It Up

Scott and I are going to be leaving Boston in about 5 days. It’s sounds so scary – we are sad to leave amazing friends and family; but yet we know that life is about change and experiences. Colorado, though a very familiar place to me, will be a new starting point for us as a family. We are excited to be returning to a place I’ve always called home.

These last couple of weeks have been fun and eventful. We had one last visit with our special place in Vermont, and spent a few days last week on the Vineyard. I’ll post some pictures of that soon, I promise! We’ve done dinners, parties, BBQ’s and have been having a blast. But now, the packing…

When you see your yarn all packed up and ready to go, it becomes real. I unfortunately have to say bye-bye to my stash for a bit, as it will be living in storage for a couple of months until we find a more permanent place to live. Soon hopefully, I will be able to have the perfect craft room and studio, where I can play with all this yarn whenever I please :)

Have a safe and happy 4th!
