Couple of new things...

I've been busy lately, so I thought I'd share...

Fairy Sock Silver wrap


This was a wrap made for a friend in exchange for her inkle loom, using Puff the Magic Rabbit Fairy Sock Silver hand dyed yarn. She loved it and now I need to figure out how to use an inkle loom. After I get shuttles and a tension peg for it. Heh. (Weaverbird, I'm still interested in yours as well, just need to wait until I have the spare money for it.)


Xiane's Violets


This gorgeous habotai silk scarf was inspired by a friend's recently hand dyed roving. I saw her roving and knew I needed to do a scarf in similar colors, it was that stunning. Thus, it is named for her. It is available HERE.


Melancholy Skies


This gorgeous silk charmeuse scarf reminded me of a stormy sunset. I loved the way the two dyes played off of each other. While shibori remains my favorite silk dyeing method, this comes a close second. It is available HERE

And finally...

Green Snow Rockstar


A new handmade bag was listed today. It features a handwoven outside using gorgeous handspun Rockstar Art Yarn from Threeravens Fiber Studio. As well as a handmade raku bead from Smoking Turtle Studios, which has been in my stash since early 2008 and it appears, the artist no longer sells online, so is a rare piece. It is available HERE.

And that's it for now. I have a few smaller pieces in progress that need to be finished, then a couple more bags and a couple more cuffs. Hopefully by the end of the month, I'll have some more finished. Doing everything by hand can be slow going, but oh so worth it in the end.

Busyness

That's what it's been like here.

Been busy with making up mini keychains, pendants, etc, as samples. Been busy weaving all the things- seriously, 5 scarves/table runners now. And now currently, I'm working on something for a mock up of a project I have in mind, since I'm not entirely satisfied with my original idea for it.

Currently, all items in my Etsy shop expire the end of this month. There is a 10% off coupon code for Etsy items only. Use 'TENPERCENT' at checkout and get 10% off your entire purchase. It, like the items, will expire the end of this month.

Etsy items will NOT be renewed. Focus will be spent on the Big Cartel shop instead, from here on out, with minimal promotion of the Zibbet shop as back up. The Artfire shop is closed as of Jan 1, 2014 and will not be reopened.

So. That is where things stand as of right now.

Back to work I go!

I made that!

So if you don't follow me over on Facebook, then you'll likely not have seen my first ever finished scarf.

Mark claimed it immediately. Even wore it to work today. Heh.

Later this year, I hope to offer handwoven scarves and the like, hopefully hand dyed as well, in my Big Cartel Shop, so stay tuned!

My second scarf- all Lion Brand Wool-Ease in the Fisherman this time, 6.5" wide x 24" long, not including fringe, in a neat basketweave-esque pattern, just came off the loom today. After I wash it, block it and photograph it, I'll have photos of it up somewhere as well.}:)
