|Meadowsong Alpaca's Thriller arrived at my doorstep this week.|
|Lovely strings of Citrine nestled in luxury.|
To represent the loveliness, I posed a couple of strands of Citrine I purchased a Kasey's Beads in Naperville, hopping to allow this semi-precious stone to reflect the beauty of this precious fleece. Oh, it sunk right into all that soft, fluffy, spin-able loveliness. Okay, I'm using too many superlatives. Got it.
Just to let you know, this fleece is going to be the cornerstone of my hand woven throws made with sustainably grown fiber that will one day be the cornerstone of my Etsy shop, once it opens. In the meantime, maybe some rally nice Citrine and quartz crystal jewelry? I love using natural stone because I do believe it imparts some positive energies to the wearer. Plus, stones will stay nice looking, bright and clean even when worn against the skin. I'll be working on my Etsy page, my new web page (you can still go to http://www.whorlwindweaver.com for spinning tips while it's under contruction, and I have a New Facebook page. It's all under Craftsteader.
|More green beans grew overnight.|
While my fellow crafters enjoyed a lovely day in Allegan at the fiber festival (I'm not rubbing it in east coast, but mother nature has been merciful this weekend) I was slaving away in the garden, picking and tying up tomatoes, cleaning out the dying squash in the garden proper and finding more and more green beans. I swear, a green bean can grow overnight because the ones show in this picture were not there yesterday.
