spin and thrift

there has been a little spinning lately. celebratory and de-stressing fleece artist merino/silk done yesterday at knitting group and home (finished the papers!)


a bit of blue green bfl, washed and ready to knit- from this roving, and here’s a sister yarn. such a hard colorway to photo, but here’s my most recent attempt. i must say i’m so tempted to write poetry about how much i enjoy spinning bfl. it very well might be my favorite


and on the thrifty front, we’ve been hitting garage sales looking for furniture and the such lately. last saturday i walked into a church sale and the first thing i saw was this tin

new button tin

i would have bought it had it just been a tin… but it wasn’t. it contained buttons!
here are some of my faves


and i couldn’t resist photographing this darling one still on its card

lady washington baby pearls

happy wednesday!
