I'm working on updating my etsy store tonight with some new goodies, I'm partricularly fond of these mohair rovings! I've spun some of my hand dyed roving up and will knit a shawl for myself for this winter.

A loop for the button to tie down the flap and a strap and this little gem is done. I made it to hold a cell phone, however, mine is bigger than the bag. I"m thinking it'd hold a small pair of scissors an a few needles and some thread for stitching. The yarn is cotton and was dyed by hand.
I'm working on finishing this pair of socks for myself, they will be quite toasty when all is said and done! In the meantime I'm skirting and am dyeing Jacob fleeces for spinning that will also be made into socks.

I'm destashing my studio, whilest getting my next project together and decided that it was time for the large collection of beads to find a new home. These are from mixes I had made for various projects a long time ago and don't feel like sorting them into "solids" again.

I made it to the front page of Etsy.com tonight in Fringe's Treasury More Lust for Rust!!! I was so excited to find the treasury there. Unfortunatley I have no pics to share, at this point in time because thumbilizr wasn't cooperating - again! I managed to get a screen shot and it's saved in Word but I don't know how to put it here.

Some of this I plan to sell in my store as an attempt to destash, there's about 50 pounds of silk scrap fabrics in this tub, no kidding! There are a few pieces, very small ones actually, that I plan to use in a quilt because they look like the horse head nebula in Orion. I may take a few of the fabric pieces and spin them into yarn.

the flowers were in a bag marked a dollar at the local fabric store! Sign me up they are bright and cheerful and a wonderful addition to any project I might have in mind.
Ink painted cotton fabric ironed to fuse a shade, I think the size is approx 2.5 by 3.25 inches (ATC sized)
I stitched the edges using my machine and laid down a bed of organinc stitches using free motion stitching.
I then stitched a silk flower to the tag using my machine and couched down some scrap bits of acrylic yarn in complimenting colors.
