Where did the time go?

Well, here it is, January 26th already so how did we come to be at the end of the first month of 2015?

I began this year travelling as I visited my parents in Colorado. When I got home I prepared for my first fiber fest of the year, the Yellow Rose Fiber Fiesta in Seguin. It seemed a bit slow between the weather and the fact that this year it was in January where it has normally been in April. I was still very happy to take part in it and look forward to coming back in 2016 when it returns to it’s normal time of year. During Yellow Rose I met some neat people. I bought some yarn from Undead Yarns and knit up these wonderful mitts over the weekend to help keep my hands warm.2015-01-25 17.11.28

After coming home from Yellow Rose, I did more travel as I took a road trip with Hubby to deliver Baby K to Nana in Kentucky for a brief visit. That was a long weekend but we had a good time and will be returning shortly to bring Baby K home again.

So what have I been doing this past week? Trying to catch up on housework, developing my website and begin dyeing again. It seems like it’d be easier without a little oneunderfoot but I miss her and that makes it hard to concentrate as I’m wondering about what she’s up to at Nana’s. I have accomplished getting my website up and running so now I’m online at http://www.theBarbedDragon.com.

The dyeing is a bit slower but I am done with the pre-orders from the Iron Dyers December challenge. Now to let them finish drying and mailed out by the end of the week.2015-01-09 17.57.01

The other new thing in my life is Jamberry. I love all the designs and having cute nails. I love them so much that I decided to becoming a consultant. 2015-01-24 11.04.37

So now that January is almost gone, I’m finally settling down and will be working to get to a regular schedule. I’m crocheting a baby blanket, knitting a cowl and a sweater, and finally getting some of my pattern notes together so I can present you with some of my concepts.2015-01-17 11.01.55

Stay tuned for some fun happenings this year.
