Woodland Walk

This is one of the things that I’ve been working on lately.  It started out as a roving that I bought from Edgewood Garden Studio on Zibbet.  http://www.zibbet.com/EdgewoodGardenStudio I just “happened” to be perusing spinning fiber purveyors on Zibbet. And I came across this roving.  After a few days of visiting it, I finally bought the roving on April 3rd.  I started spinning it on April 14th and finished on May 12th.  Out of 4.2 oz of wonderful fiber, I managed to squeeze out 1,115 yards of a 2 ply lace weight yarn.  NOW the big question is…what am I going to do with it?  Make a lace shawl?   Make a lace dress?  Sell it as a monster skein of yarn?  I just don’t know at this time.

Time for the close up.

Buy One, Donate One

Help me out with my project.

The small community of Indian Springs is about 50 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada.  It has around 900 – 1000 residents, around 250 are children.  Currently, there is an 80+% unemployment rate. The Pre-K through 12th grade school is the focal point of the community.  Every year there is a Christmas party given at the school for underprivileged families in the community.

At my store, Susie Rose Designs, http://www.zibbet.com/SusieRoseDesigns, I’m doing something a bit different.  For every item at my store listed under “Buy One Donate One” that is purchased, I will donate one similar item to the school benefit the Indian Springs Community.  This also includes any custom orders. 

If you want to make a direct donation to help the community, please contact Vicki Johnson, the banker at the school, at (702)879-3201.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

On your mark! Get set! GO!!!

I finally made the plunge.  I started my own blog.  Some of the things I hope to do is:  the fiber stuff I play with (weaving, spinning, lace making, quilting and a host of other things) include some tutorials of the fiber arts stuff I do, business mentoring and a wide variety of goodies.  If you want to see some of what I do go to either one of my stores:  http://www.zibbet.com/SusieRoseDesigns  or  http://www.zibbet.com/MountainRose Foods .

Not much for a start.  But it is a start.
