March 31, 2015.
So much has happened since last fall, not sure where to even begin. As many of you know my mother was diagnosed with cancer just after Christmas and she passed away this month. I miss her so very much, especially our daily phone calls just to chit chat about our everyday lives. She was a powerful force in my life and there is a very large hole in my very core without her.
My job at the local Waldorf school has kept me tremendously busy. Love the job, but it is tiring and my energy for posting on the blog is fairly non-existent! That being said, I still have the energy to make things when I return home, which is most important. So, here are some things I worked on this month...
My first Waldorf doll using the instructions from the book Making Waldorf Dolls by Maricrsistin Sealey. Her hair is hand dyed wool I bought in Taos,NM (to make socks with, I think I still have enough left!) I am very pleased with her and will certainly be making more.
This little butterfly doll I just finished this morning, having started her (and her sisiter) last night after my daughter went to bed. She is a gift for a dear friend and came together quite quickly. The tutorial is here.
And I have been spinning quite a bit on my trusty Louet S70 spinning wheel. This gorgeous hand dyed merino top is from Yarn Rescue. The colorway is "Aquarium". I still have another 4 ounce braid to spin but not sure what the finsihed product will be. Perhaps a knitted cardigan using the handspun as colorwork around the yoke?
