When Charlotte Brontë was thirteen and her brother, Branwell, was twelve, they designed and wrote a series of tiny books: “Measuring less than one inch by two inches, the books were made from scraps of paper and constructed by hand. Despite their diminutive size, the books contained big adventures, written in ink in careful script.”

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 :)
This set of extensions is sewn to a clip, so it’s easy to take in and out of hair.
Using my new machine. I am so in love with it!!!
So much envy. It looks great!
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 :)
Friday is Creative Friday, a day to try new things. Today I learnt Celtic braid :).
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.
