Welcome to my blog!

Hello to all, and welcome to my blog! If you are a knitter or crocheter looking for one-of-a-kind natural fiber handspun yarns, this is the place to be! I am an award winning spinner and offer for sale, as I make them available, my lovely handspun yarns. I specialize in worsted weight thru lace weight yarns in exotic or luxury fibers such as alpaca, angora bunny, mohair, silk and more (not to mention wool, of course!) I can CUSTOM SPIN anything you might be looking for. So feel free to contact me and tell me what you need. I purchase all of my fibers raw and wash/process them myself. I do NOT purchase commercial fibers that are imported from outside the U.S. I support the American Farmer!

I also custom spin pet hair including cat and dog. I have spun many breeds of dog including Golden Retriever, Shetlie, Australian Shephard, Samoyed, Great Pyrinease......just to name a few.

I am also looking for good quality fibers, especially angora. So if you raise any quality fibers, please contact me via email! Visit my complete profile for my email address.

My pencil art

I wanted to share some of my pencil artwork that I have created. Most of these were drawn when in my early 20's. Some were commissioned portraits. Obviousely my specialty is horses. These are all pencil (graphite). I'm self taught and don't remember when I started drawing. I haven't drawn anything for a number of years because of eye problems that I've suffered; inflammation causing retinal vasculitis, vitritis, gloucoma and cateracts. Surgery on my left eye has left me unable to see close up (less than 4 feet) so makes working with small things very difficult. Am hoping to overcome this setback and try to do some work in the near future. I do appologise for the quality of my photographs of my work. They survived our house fire back in 1999 and many are smoke damaged. They were also taken with an old 35mm camera, then scanned to my computer. All of these pieces were sold except the two Arabs in motion. I have that original, but was damaged in our fire. I didn't burn, but was water damaged. I did loose other originals, that burned away and could not even find the frames. I hope you enjoy my work!
