Where have I been? Again

I swear I am such a laggy blogger! I have been so busy getting ready for my first fiber festival that I haven't had much time to do anything else! I have been super busy though keeping up with Etsy which I am so thankful for, and getting more and more sales. It is nice to know that I can supplement my income with my craftiness and support my habit, one of them anyways! Well, as for the festival it is starting next friday and will run the entire weekend. It is called the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in Canby Oregon. I went last year for the first time and this year Jen from Hanks in the Hood and I will be sharing a booth. It is going to be so much fun, plus I have volunteered to photograph the festival so I am sure I will be having lots to share when it is over. In the meantime I will post some of the things I have been working on. Jen and I are both going to be selling 4 oz. Corriedale Cross hand dyed rovings for only $5! We have been doing this on Etsy too and they are a hit. I have been doing some hand painted Merino braids too, dyed firestar, beautiful dyed silk hankies and more. Here are a few photos of the dyed lovies! Oh, I almost forgot, I decided I wanted to try needle felting so I made a whimsy tree, here it is before felting.

Where have I been?

I am such a laggy blogger I didn't realize it had been so long since I was on. It must have been baseball season for the kids that took up all my time, plus my normal day job! The summer is coming to and end and it went by so quick too. I have been super busy trying to get ready for the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival that will be held the last week of September. Jen and I will have a booth there and we are so looking forward to it. It is nice to be surrounded by other fiber fanatics. I am sure I will have lots of photos to post of the event as I have volunteered to be a roving photographer. I just love my Cannon Digital Rebel SLR it makes it easy to get professional results. There is a lot more in regards to new news, I will just have to add it a bit at a time! I'll post again soon, I promise!
