Ever wanted to learn how to spin yarn with out a spinning wheel? great! … because humans figured it out before spinning wheels were invented! 

Drop Spinning!!!! 

When I was in college I started being a foster mom for angora rabbits for just the winters. I knew I wanted to try making yarn with their fluff. I looked into a spinning wheel but that totally wasn’t an option at the time due to space and school loans! After going to the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival I picked up drop spinning and bought a simple bottom whorl and practiced and practiced. With the help of some library books and the internet I was a spinning master! (ok not master.. )  it was so soothing to just pick up and create something when I came home after class or just while watching tv. 

So now I’ve decided to make a kit for beginners who want to try drop spinning for the first time.. or maybe you just want a really hip drop spindle.

check em out here!

The pale blue in this wool was dyed from old blue berries in the freezer. I had enough to spin 66 yards. Not sure what anyone could make with that. But it’s cute and pretty :) #handspunyarn #artyarn #natrualdye #barnyardsaintsart #marthasvineyard

The island life is bustling with summer. I cant even believe its july already. The great thing is I have been busy working freelance. Its strange living in a place that is so busy at this time when I grew up in a town that became quiet around this time.. they are all here! 

I miss big trees though.. and mountains. 

Im also about to put an add out in the paper for a buddy to hang out with. I art so much it might be best.. 

I took these pics driving to and from a photoshoot gig I did thats in the works. enjoy :)

My first experience vending at the Chilmark Flea!! This was the first time I have ever been a vendor like this. it was so fun and great to see people are still buying art. This was no ordinary flea market though. There were so many talented artists selling goods along with some amazing antiques. so much variety! And of course there were adorable Baerental German Shepherd puppies (www.bearental.com) .  If you ever find your self on Martha’s Vineyard on a Saturday this summer make sure you stop by and chat with me!

Tried a new felting technique with these crazy #karakul sheep fleeces i got that will most likely become some crazy creature costume. For now Walker and I demonstrate the many fashionable uses. 

Taking a walk with the ladies. So beautiful today.
