The people you meet at fibre events

I love meeting new people at fibre events -there are so many talented artists out there who are willing to trade skills or items for yarn and fibre -which is a-okay with me :) I LOVE bartering for things and have collected some very unique and treasured items this was.

Here's my latest item :)

A stunning henna design -love it as I am way too cowardly to get a real tattoo.

Back from the Dog Trials with the FREE find of the day!

The sheep dog trials were as always amazing -except for the weather which we will not discuss. Wool and rain do not do well at the best of times.
Yesterday as I was out and about catching up on my running around I came across this little lovely item with a free sign on it!  It is PERFECT for displaying yarn or braids of roving.
Somebody's trash just became this woman's new treasure :)

Tomorrow we go to the Dogs again ;)

Its the 25th year of the Kingston Sheep Dog Trials - starting today with the Nursery Dogs running and culminating in the much vaunted double life championship Sunday!

Cornerstone Fibres will be there for three days with our fibres, handspun yarn and more!

Stop by and see us and the dogs too -they are after all the stars of the show. Along with the legendary Waupoos sheep -these sheep run wild on an island all year long and have never seen a sheep dog till these trials -this way each dog faces an unknown entity with these sheep. And boy are these sheep wily!!  Would HATE to have to try to shear these wild things.

We'll be at the Grass Creek Park -just outside of Kingston on Hwy #2  -9am to 5pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday. See you there !!!

More stash busting hats

I really love making hats -they are so  easy and functional and fun :)

Here's some of the stash busting hats -I've taken all my little bits of spinning that have no home or are too small to be sold as a skein and am making hats.
Some are adult others are kid sized all depends on how much yarn is left - I do have plans to make some yarn for the purpose of other projects and am figuring out a pattern to use with this AMAZING roving from Maggie -its so pretty and I know its a one of a kind as all of her roving is :)  Shawl?? Vest?? not sure yet but will keep ideas flowing.

All together now AWWWWWWWW

Is there anything cuter than a fat litter of newborn bunnies all tucked down in the mommy's fluff?  I think not. Can you see all 8 in there -cozy and warm and already fat on mama's milk. Life is so very good.

These are satin angoras born yesterday to chocolate chinchilla mommy by pearl dad. Can't wait to see as they get bigger what colours they are!
