The changing of the seasons.

September 25, 2013 I just love when the season starts to change into winter. The crispness in the air at night. The smell of fireplaces in the air. Kern County Fair and Halloween. I love all of these. I was at the fair this week taking some photos. It is such eye candy to a photographer. Here are some of my pictures from the fair. I hope you enjoy them.

I had such a good time. I am looking forward to going back and taking Vincent this weekend.

This past week has been so crazy

June 23, 2012 I had actually fallen asleep in my computer chair around 630 pm because I was tired. I woke up 30 minutes later checked my phone and had 2 urgent messages. I check them and my mom was like our house caught on fire. I was like OMG! I made my way to their house as calmly as I could drive. The fireman had the fire contained when I got there. It was still quite smokey though. My mom spent the night at my house because of her COPD. She could hardly breath and was stressed out. It was good for her to leave. Here are some pictures from that night

the bottom three pictures are damage from the fire departments hoses and equipment.
It was such a crazy night. My parents have 25-30,000 dollars in damage to their home. My dad is a 100% disabled Vietnam Veteran who is living off of his Veteran's benefits. I started a donation fund to help them out. If anyone can help we would appreciate it. here is the link to the donation site
or if you would feel more comfortable doing it through paypal here is a donation button for my parents. if you would like to send something directly to my parents in the mail just find me on facebook as Victoria Barton and I will private message their address to you.

Vincent and I went over to Lowe's Monster's University Build and Grow on Saturday with Vincent. We had a great time.
here is my knitting project. It is for the Knit with Love group on Ravelry

and ending with the Super Moon.

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. IMAG9227 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. IMAG9237 IMAG9232 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. IMAG9225 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. IMAG7242-1 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. IMAG7050-1 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. IMAG7052-1 Make sure you hope on over to Sosae Caetano's wonderful blog. She is the one who started WIP Wednesdays.
