Today was as close to perfect as it could get . Gorgeous blue sky with puffy white clouds, a little breeze, Sweet little children to play with on the porch. First thing this morning we threw our pretty springy skirts on and went outside.
Last night I finished these crocheted rainbow scarves. I've only ever learned a basic stitch which I picked back up with the help of my Mom.
I found the blog Childhood Magic recently and it lit a fire for me to give crocheting another try. Just like a good book I could not put it down. So addicting! I didn't stop crocheting until I had used up 2 skeins. The girls were thrilled to see this morning that their scarves were finished. They wore them as scarves, hung them in their hair, around their tricycle handles and used them as curtains in their pony's palace.
And as we were drawing the ponies their own pool on the porch with chalk, a surprise! The mail lady came and delivered our much anticipated first ever batch of Merino Roving.. from Spinning Awesome Good.. We've been wanting to make some felted beads and dolls and so much more..
We talked about where it came from and Valencia was so excited that there were such things as " rainbow sheep" ..... So we still have a bit explaining to do :)
Luckily Shelby (owner of SpinningAwesome Good) has a blog Evolve to Joy that gives some insight into her roving.The girls played with it a few good hours until we came in for lunch.
They kindly turned down my "rabbit food" lunch and requested pancakes,
To make it fun we added some food coloring.... pink, purple, blue and green. The girls called them Rainbow pancakes, but they actually turned out blue.
And to make this day even more exciting you can see not 1 but 2 of my Etsy products in 2 different Storque articles.
The first being my rose garlands in the Article Woodland Woo Weddings
And the 2nd feature is in the Guest Curator on etsy Storque Article Thoughts from Alice
