Four Months in One Day

This afternoon I found myself dressed and ready for a happy hour event with time to spare.  There I was with a whole hour an nothing to do.  I sat down at the computer and realized that this would be a good time to finally get back to my blog!

I've taken such a long break from blogging that I was stumped as to how to make my comeback.  Four months have gone by.  How could I possibly make up for four months?  Then that Crowded House song popped into my head, "Four Seasons In One Day".  I jumped into iPhoto and grabbed pictures from the last four months.

Here I am with four months worth of fiber arts in one day.  Since my last post I have traveled to Alberobello, Italy where I found a  counter balance loom on display in the Trullo Sovrano.  I made scarves that I wore through the grottos of Grottaglie.  In the spring, I entertained myself by making other people's patterns like the sleeveless vest in the upper left hand corner from PartPixyDesigns.  

I also indulged in a few Doris Chan innovations.  I wore the cute, lacy black sweater over a tank top while in Stockholm, Sweden.  I savored castles and countryside in this beautiful place and also discovered some fiber folk art, but I'll save that for another post. 

I've also been spinning and I have my first skeins of German Milchschafe prepared.  I used the Navajo ply on these and I enjoyed refreshing my muscle memory on this technique that I have not used in some time.  

There it is.  My last four months, not in great detail, but it feels good to finally post something on my beloved blog.  If you like details, my facebook page tends to be more up to date.  Until next time... which will be less than four months...
