whoa .. hello! 
i have been spending the last couple days dyeing up bunches of fibers in prepping for a shop update that is coming soon. This will be a large batt update consisting of chunky textured Cobbler batts and some smoother but still textured Pinwheel batts. I have decided to no longer make the Betti Confetti batts and instead I am using my carder morsels in the Pinwheel batts along with top and locks.

and for fun - here's a photo of me, emily (bricolage studios) and dani (pumpkinhaus) at Midwest Fiber and Folk show we did together in June!

today is a shop update!
just put a load of batts up and will most likely not be having any more fiber updates for the year.. there is a slight chance i may have one more update in december of handspun yarns. so feel free to pop on over and scoop up some goodies to get you thru the woolly season of cozy spinning! here's a sneak of some batts that i listed :

 lots to love!
the blog may become much more silent as i switch over to my new site .
not quite sure how things will work themselves out regarding 'hands and notions' ... it's all still a bit up in the air as i am embarking on a new venture with my handmade!
