Cascading Leaves Card – Special Reason Bundle

I am in LOVE with the Special Reason bundle in the Occasions catalog! There are so many possibilities from feminine to masculine to neutral!

I was playing around with the leaves and cut WAY too many… or so I thought! I started building them onto the Woodland card front and POOF! My card was transformed into a wonderful cascading waterfall of leaves!

Stamping Saturday Session 2

I held my third Stamping Saturday on August 6 and had such a great time! Thank you to those that joined me! And if you haven’t joined me yet, head over to my Facebook page and give it a like! I have my next Stamping Saturday event scheduled for September in the Events section.

In Session 2 I featured Thoughtful Branches, an August exclusive while supplies last! This stamp set with coordinating thinlets dies is AMAZING! I love the versatility. So many great things from flowers to trees. The first card we made used the Woodland TIEF and Whisper White Craft Ink to create a raised background. We used several greens on the accent leaves and cut out our sentiment with the Layering Ovals Framelits. The second card we made is a SHAKER card! So much fun! I used Emerald Envy as my main color, and added some Whisper White words on a banner cut out from the Duet Banner Punch.

Handspun Happenings

So, I’ve been spinning quite a bit lately, and I thought I would share with you some of what I have in my stash.

Handspun Yarns

From bottom of picture to top: Spinning Sister’s Superfine Hand Dyed Merino Wool 2-plied, Targhee Wool Single Ply, Miss Bab’s Sock Yarn 2-plied, Unknown Artist Wool 2-plied, The Soap Lady’s Autumn Merino/Alpaca 2-plied, Spinner’s Choice Corriedale Wool 2-plied, Abstract Fibers Corriedale 2-plied, Alpaca Wool Blend Single Ply, Unknown Artist Coopworth 2-plied, and finally Natural Merino all 2-plied.

Natural Handspun

This is a closeup of the Natural Handspun Merino Wool. The three on the left were from the same bunch, the one in the middle is Superwash that I picked up from the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival (OFFF) the year before last, and the three on the right came from Woodland Woolworks in Carlton, OR.

Ashford Joy with BFL

Isn’t my baby precious!? My Ashford Joy Double Treadle with Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) from Frabjous Fibers also picked up from Woodland Woolworks.

Singles on Bobbin

My singles on the bobbin. I navajo plied this (3-ply) so that the colorways would stay together and my finished knitted project would be verriegated. I’m making a scarf with a waffle texture and it’s turning out LOVELY! Can’t wait to get some pics up!

That’s it for now, tune in again for more great fibers!
