Crocheting and spinning and blogging, oh my!

I cannot believe it's October! Jeesh, I feel as though I have raced through the year working, traveling and making stuff every waking moment. It's all a bit of a blur...

Despite the fervor, I have gotten a bit of spinning done...

Definitely channeling jewel tones at the moment! The blues and greens are wool as is the bottom pink/purple colorway. The top pinkish hank is spun from recycled silk sari fiber.

Spinning recycled silk sari fibers is awesome. I love this stuff! The colors and textures of the silk sari "fluff" are just wonderful!

In addition, I have also been crocheting and weaving. I'm not knitting much as of late, but I'll pick it up again soon. I always do. However, check out my latest thready crocheted creation...

She's my version of a little matryoshka. I plan to back her in felt and make her into a pendant as she's only about 2 1/2" tall. My daughter (who is 19 now...can you believe it?) has claimed her already. Some things never change!


  1. Awww...Matryoshka is adorable! What? Lena is 19? How did that happen?

    We're having our Stitch 'n Witch at the WeHo SnB, F. Mkt. on 10/25. This year's theme is "Haunting Britain." check our group on the Rav! We'd love to see you there. :)

  2. That's awesome! I love those dolls.
    The colors are beautiful together.

  3. Thanks ladies! She has sassy look on her face. Even when I try to do cute, I cannot quite get it. LOL

    Ellen, maybe it's time for me to hit SNB!

  4. Oh yes, Lena is definitely an adult now. Blows my mind!
