While I've been diving head-first into a massive squishy yarn pile this week, there on my desk sat this gasp-inducing #fibreshare package from @fiberratic. Amber generously put together all of these scrumptious yarns and fibers, PLUS some seriously coveted scissors, a rose stone from her home state, and a face mask for some self care after a long day at the #loom . She's simply the best☺️ // Any yarn-y folks out there who haven't joined the #fibresharetribe yet, go on and follow @fibreshare before you miss the next round. You'll thank yourself later.
WOW!! Opened this amazing package of #fibreshare love from Julie @teaselhill I feel so blessed. Handwritten notes with details and history of all the beautiful items too. Thank you so much Julie! ❤️🐑❤️

Since we started vending st stitches shows three years ago we've met some amazing people and made tons of new fiber friends and family. At our first Stitches we did I started going around and taking pictures with all the cool people I met. Knitters, spinners, weavers, designers, even the XRX staff! I came from a LE and music background so the fiber industry was a whole new world to me!! Two people that I have managed to snag pics with at every show we've done is @mondragonrick and @diana_w_baber! The two, along with everyone else I've met have shown me what a wild and woolly (ha!) world this is that were involved in! HUGE thanks to everyone!! And if we haven't taken a pic with you or gotten to meet you then come by booth 515 and say hi! Abby is the pretty one, I'm the bearded ginger smiling like a fool at people! #twistedowl#twistedowlfiberstudio#stitchestexas#imwiththeband#handdyedyarn#indydyer#stitchestexas2017#fiberfriends#fiberfamily

Daisies are the best flower 🌼 I modified @persialou 's sunglass case pattern just a tiny bit to make a little mini purse for my MIL who also loves Daisies. She has a small remote of sorts that she has to take with her everywhere she goes so this was kind of exactly what she needed #persialou#craftblogger#crochetpurse#ipreview @preview.app
Yes, Kris and Oz were away, back to New England. Not only did they get to celebrates Kris's mothers 91st birthday, her aunt, Kris's mothers twin sister, also turned 91! A great time was had. We have more stories about some of their other adventures in New England, but we wanted to share this photo of their old knitting group! We had a lovely afternoon catching up with old dear friends as well as meeting new friends. Fibers friends really are special friends. #cambriayarn#knittersofinstagram#knittingfriends#fiberfriends

Was meant to upload this the other day haha whoops! This is my first time participating in @fibreshare and I'm having so much fun with my new #fiberfriends @yarning_mama and @hookedonfibers 🎉 #fsasks me to share some facts about myself so here we go!
1. I was born in Australia and moved to the Netherlands when I was 1 and we moved back to Australia when I was 5! I really miss my Uncle and the snow! ❄
2. Ive been crocheting for 17 months and im loving it more and more each day 😍
3. I love reading books (real books! 📚 ) My favourite genre being fantasy! It's been a while since ive read though! I cant listen to audio books - the narrators voice always gets to me! 🔇
4. My mum tried to teach me how to knit but I sucked, I would always drop stitches! Id love to learn how to weave and I wouldn't mind trying to hand dye yarn or giving spinning a go!
5. I was lucky enough to be able to travel to Japan for a week! It was the most amazing and beautiful place, I learned so much about the culture! 🌸 I'd love to go back one day.
6. I used to weigh 110kgs now i weigh 62kgs! 💪
That's a wrap! Two creative days of fun with a magnificent bunch of friends! Thank you all for coming, sharing, laughing, pom pom making and chicken whistling at UNWIND 😂😂🐔. Xoxoxo to you all! #romneyridgeyarnsandwool#fiberfriends#create
