April 10, 2013 This has been a good week. Lots of stuff going on in the Barton Household. Vincent is taking his school pictures today. He will be graduating from head start this year and starting pre-k in the fall. Vincent is excited to start big boy school because he will get his Bumble Bee backpack. I always have a lot of WIPS going on at one time. This week I am plying some beautiful yarn from atomic blue. She is on etsy by the same name. I am also making this lovely shaggy bracelet from Unkamen Supplies(etsy) This lovely little bracelet has purple miyuki drops down the length of the bracelet. It is a delicate and lovely bracelet which has been so much fun to make. Last but certainly not least and this would be mother natures creation more than mine but I have been nurturing it and feeding it some good organic plant food. My little basil plant. I love the little leaves. They are so delicate looking. I hope everyone has a wonderful WIP wednesday and make lots of neat stuff.

March 6, 2013 Hi Everyone!!! Happy Wednesday! I meant to write my post last night but I was distracted by a movie. I am currently still spinning my pixie wings. I is a very thin spin. I have been enjoying spinning the pixie wings. I am now ready to ply and am almost to the plying stage. This week has been an interesting week but I will share more on that on tomorrows blog. I am loving the weather today. Mixed sun and cloud intervals. I just saw raindrops and it was not supposed to rain till tomorrow according to the weather man. I love the weather. Anywho Happy WIP Wednesday.
February 6, 2013 Welcome back to WIP Wednesdays. I might actually have some knitting to share next week because I have an order to fill for Easter. 20 little Easter trees in pink yellow and green. Should be cute. This week I am spinning Pixie Wings. It is a Merino bamboo blend from Sosae Caetano. I so love her fiber. It holds a special place in my heart.:-) Anywho. On to fiber my fiber picture. I have also been dreaming of gardens. I can't wait to get my seeds planted so I can have little seedlings. I have been researching alternate planting techniques, i.e. container gardens, how to fertilize and so on and so forth. It is going to be fun. Can't wait. :-) well that is all for now and be sure to check out the other blogs under WIP Wednesday in my sidebar.
January 30,2013 I am trying something new with my blog WIP Wednesdays. Every Wednesday I am going to be posting one of my works in progress. If I was to post them all I would be here a couple hours. This week I am working on some spinning some heavenly cotton candy merino tencel fiber. I am absolutely in love with this fiber. I am spinning this for a shawl I will be knitting soon. Here is another lovely shot of the fiber drafted. I think it really looks like a Thnead. If you have seen The Lorax you will know what I am talking about. Make sure you hope on over to Sosae Caetano's wonderful blog. She is the one who started WIP Wednesdays.
