Time Flies!

Wow! It's been a while since I posted anything. With the increase of my hours at work I'm having a hard time keeping up with everything non-work related. Good thing this only lasts 6 months of the year. I don't think I could handle year round madness. LOL

I do have a few things to show for my efforts lately. First up are my new Starfish stitch markers. If I can get these done they will be headed to Jessie to be included in the Phatfiber box for April.
Next I have some finished handspun cotton to show! It's a bit lumpy but that's ok, I still love it. I'm sure I will get better with practice. After all, my first wool handspun was pretty lumpy too. :)

I stared with this cotton that I cleaned & dyed...
Then handcarded into punis....
And ended up with approx. 58 yards of sport weight yarn.
I'm sure it's destined to be a wash/dish cloth. And I'll use it until it just falls apart! :)

I hope everyone has been doing good & has had a fabulous weekend!
