" One day is spun in gold..
Another day seems red hot or icy cold..
Passing storms clear the air and change the tide..
Each day a new sun!"

Inspiration

Good morning my dear friends...

I have been away from the blog universe for a while, the past several months.....My inspiration to write has been at a standstill...

With that said, good things are happening in my world...

Earlier this year, I found out that I am a new grandmother to be...Her name is gonna be Caroline Elise :-)

Caroline is due later this month...Happy dance!!!

I meet with my two best friends often! Together we can talk the day away!

I am learning and practicing some fun skills with my drop spindling and crochet...

I have also learned a new lesson or two about Photo Shop and logos..I launched my new photography website..

Photography of Lisa

All in all, a good break!



A new creation begins with inspiration, a dream...........






Talking takes inspiration to a new level






So does experimentation




And then just do...



I love the smell, the colors and softness of wool top and roving...The yumminess puts me in a good place!



"Coral Clouds" being spun into a single using the Z twist, my drop spindle spinning clockwise...



"Coral Clouds" two singles plied together , wound,  ready for a 20 minute soak in hot water....

Once this yarn is dry, it can be made into a project ....




I always start my creative journey with coffee






I learned some new crochet stitches this summer..
Some of those stitches are used in this project pictured...Shawl in a Ball is the name of the yarn I am using..
 "Community Coral" is the colorway..




About halfway finished









  Do you have a favorite way to wear a triangle shawl ?                                                                





I gave this shawl to my sweet daughter in law, Melissa, for her birthday




May each and every one of you be blessed with  happy Happy inspirations!

  1. Lisa, It's so good to read your words and study your photos on this chilly early morning in CO. That coral color makes me feel warmer. I can almost feel the soft yarn of the shawl around my shoulders! Your photos are an amazement. That first takes my breath away. I'm trying to figure out where you saw that scene and how you composed the photograph. The spin one is so creative. I love the look of your new web site. Congratulations - you've been a busy gal!
