Meet Bogie

On the last day of the year as we look back at the memories -some good, some sad we also look forward with hope for 2013.
Today we decided to let our hearts be broken once more by a new member of the kitty clan -meet Bogie a year and a half rescue from the local shelter. Bogie was found wandering the streets in October and is only up for adoption now so this tells you this boy has had it rough.
His sad eyes and cries could not be ignored through the cage bars and his little paws reaching out to grab us as we walked by spoke to both of us so home he went with us.
He has to get use to the dogs and us but we hope to have many happy new years together with him :)
Blessing to all of you this last day of the year.
May you find peace and happiness every day of your lives.
Right now my heart is so full of joy I can hardly speak -I have been claimed by another kitty!
This morning was listening to the Les Mis soundtrack and when they got to the point "now bring me prisioner 24601 -your time is up and your paroles begun. Do you know what that means? Yes it means I free" he started purring on my lap as if to say yes I'm free from those cages :)

Last minute presents :)

Handspun black satin and white french angora to make a stunning beret for a friend of my aunt :)
Hope she likes it!

And look what Daryl's secret santa delivered for him hand forged steel and antler handle -it is beautiful and deadly sharp! And of course a brass bottle opener in a "girly" shape ;)

From darkness to light we climb

Last night was the winter solstice -the day where darkness overtakes the light and is at its peak. We now start once again climbing towards the light of spring.
May we all find light in our lives and may the darkness be ever held at bay!
Blessings to you all!!!!

What inspires you??

I like to knit really I do but I LOVE spinning especially angora. Its is such a wonderful fibre and I adore the feel of it and the texture and well everything about it.  I spin my angor right from the bag -no prep required -I can and have spun it right from the bunnie's back much to the delight and amazement of the people there.
So I'm back to my great love of fibre and spinning. It inspires me every day and really makes me happy :)

I was so thrilled and inspired by all the sights, sounds and smells that is the Plowshare craft show this past weekend.  I was also inspired and encouraged to keep spinning and knitting after all the wonderful comments from patrons at the show - I had a lady buy one of my angora scarves and she wanted to know how soon I could have some yarn spun for her -here's 5 ounces of red satin all done up just for her LOL or me who knows ;)
