I am totally addicted....

to beautiful yarns.  I see them in the local shops, online, on Ravelry and I just gotta have some.  I have two entire dressers full and the top of a closet full of yarn yet I still buy more.  I'm going to share some of them with you and then maybe you'll understand.
Blues, purples and khaki green....wool & acrylic

Dark blue, burgundy, browns, golds - Australian Wool

Silver blue with a metallic touch - cotton & acrylic

Deep Teal with a metallic touch - cotton & acrylic
Then I started a new cowl for myself for Christmas and it's a beautiful green Baby Alpaca and so so soft.
Now do you understand?  And I have 2 more packages coming with yarn in them.  I think it might be time for a sale.....or a trip to a therapist.
What I did want to show you was something I saw at Joann's the other day.  It was sitting on the cutting counter and it's for pressing fabrics.  Yesterday was the first time I used it and I think it's a great product.  I used it on the linen I'm using for my new project and every wrinkle was gone in a flash.  It's a little pricey at $7.99 but if you use a coupon then it's pretty reasonable.
It comes in clear which has no fragrance and a light blue (which is what I purchased) and it has a nice linen aroma to it.
I also forgot to show you a finish I did for a friend who has a Halloween tree.
It's by Val's Stuff and it was a fun stitch.  Just in case you can't read it "Said the Spider to the fly".  Love it!  It's done on perforated paper but it just as easily could be done on fabric.  It's in my shop if you're interested.
Okay now I'm going to finish laundry (blah) and get some good stitching time in.
Blessings, Barbara

I know now how this love of yarn starts and I am trying to resist having yet another stash for a new hobby. I have started knitting in earnest but also spin yarn so I can see having lots of unspun fiber around the house..I must resist..I must..aaggahhhahh!!
