hanging wool

Felt Pieces
Hanging Wool

I've finally put some wool work on my studio wall. It's interesting to experience the changes from holding a piece to pinning it up and gazing from afar. I'll be happy to pin them up and adjust designs while in progress now that I've strung this twine line.

roving + thread

Smokey Mountain Fibers
Eweniquely Ewe Fibers

I've just unpacked some new wool. I'm looking forward to working with the sheep's grey I purchased from a new-to-me vendor Smoky Mountain Fibers plus I bought more drab khaki, light & medium natural brown, and the ercu Blue Face Leicester from Eweniquely Ewe. There's some furious felting to be done!

Greenfelt Floral
Wooly Threads Order

My wooly threads order came in too so I'm stitching away on the green floral piece again. I've gotten farther than the first photo pictured above. I will post a progress update soon and log the crewel color numbers too.

progress report

I was just reordering some crewel and realized I didn't blog the color number of this piece I am working on. For the record it's appleton 881. My usual vendor was out of the colors I needed so I went with a new vendor, wooly threads, turned out to be a good find as the cost per skein was significantly less — perk!

sibling rodeo

Sibling Rodeo

I can't find enough fabulously supportively perfect words to describe our wonderful experiences with Kidspace occupational therapy. Our therapist Lise has been a dream send. We've love the last year and a half of support, practice, and play. I'm a fan and would recommend Kidspace to anyone — five stars for sure. Max and Viv both have thrived. I love this picture snapped by Lise of the two of them at the end of the obstacle course enjoying a sibling ride on the bronco. So fun!
