New diapers

I got back to some diaper sewing this week since the trainer coop is all finished.

This owlie one is a custom for a sweet mama on Hyena Cart.  It is one of my favorite David & Goliath prints!

This Boys Rock one is make from one of the new Kumquat prints that I just bought. It is such a cute print!

This last one is Icky Baby Tiny Tools. I love this print as well!

I'm learning to spin!

My wonderful husband bought me a spindle kit for my birthday in November and I have just recently found the time to learn how to use it.  I am thankful to the lady that I met at a local fair who gave me some tips!  It has taken a while to get the hang of drafting and spinning at the same time, but it is coming along.  The green/silver/black skein is some fiber that I got out of the Phat fiber box. It is a mix of mohair, merino, tencel and silk. The one next to it is some superwash dyed in "Lavender Lollipops" by Blushing Ewe.  They were both really nice to work with!

This one is Mosaic Moon's "Ceilidh" colorway on 80's superfine merino. The photo doesn't really do the colors much justice.  It is a really beautiful colorway. This is only 2.5 oz and I have a total of 8 to spin. Once it is done, it is going to be an SMSS Handspun Pinafore for one of my daughters!

2 down, 2 to go!

I have been working so diligently and am about half way done with trainers from the trainer coop. Whew!  I haven't had much time to work on other things, but I do plan on stocking a custom trainer slot this week. Here are the first two batches.



I am stocking a new product this week. They are just small bits of fluff, but I have found them very useful in my own home.  I love them because they are so soft on my face and they put to use all of my pretty scraps that I hate to throw out! So, here are my new bamboo velour/sherpa cotton balls.
