There’s 10 pounds of wool roving on its way to me, and the shipping status just ticked over to “out for delivery”

I grabbed this photo a little while ago, while I was working on this pendant. I think it came out looking pretty cool :)

Progress shot of a Terezi Pyrope inspired journal I was working on the other day. It’s got teal silk bookcloth, red and gold dragon skin paper covers, and a pocket on the inside cover. 
I’ll try and get a picture of the finished book up soon :)

Let me not to the marriage of true mindsAdmit impediments. Love is not loveWhich alters when it alteration finds,Or bends with the remover to remove:O no; it is an ever-fixed mark, That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;It is the star to every wandering bark,Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle’s compass come; Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom.If this be error and upon me proved,I never writ, nor no man ever loved. 

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no; it is an ever-fixed mark, 
That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks 
Within his bending sickle’s compass come; 
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, 
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

Remember this mystery spinning project? These double ended dreadlocks made their debut at the great blue heron music festival, and they were such a huge success that I’ll be offering them online as well :)

I am home! I had an amazing time and met a lot of wonderful people. I’m already excited about next year :)

Sadly, my camera was either forgotten or packed somewhere weird so I don’t have pictures for you, but a few other people took some and should be sending them to me soon. 

I’m off to vend at the Great Blue Heron Music Festival! Local folks should come and say hello :)

Everyone else, I will see you next week, with pictures :D
