So before, I get into taking all of the cool sheepy and fiber picstomorrow; I thought I would share some of the before pics.
Yarn color naming is always a fun part of the process and this year my favorite was zombie apocalypse. I do love me some zombies!
|Zombie apocalypse on the skein winder with hello bunny. That just cracks me up.|
|The blue yarns are from the same dye pot/ 2 different yarn bases/also went all Jackson Pollock on some yarn.|
|Three of the same color way. The back skein has not been reskeined.|
|Some new fiber cards from my photos|

Early June found fellow weaver Kathy of Riverweave Studio and I sharing a booth at Artspire in LaCrosse, Wi
Friday night kicked off with the unveiling of La Crosse’s newest art piece, by nationally-known artist, This is on the west wall of the Pump House.
With 5 different stages of music, performers and storytellers, there was a lot going on. This was such a fun event that I will look forward to doing it again next year and it was even more fun to share a booth with my talented friend Kathy.

While exploring the area with my hubby, tornado sirens went off, and listening to the radio it sounded like we were right in the path of a severe storm,with tornados sighted. His solution was to head north and try to get out of its path. Who hoo...nothing like a little danger to spice up your yarn shop hopping. Our little carriage house B&B had a note warning you to take shelter in their basement tornado shelter if sirens went off and that they would check on you but not until there was an all clear. ....does this happen here a lot? And no way was I going in their creepy tunnel shelter.
I hope you enjoy the pics of this quaint little, former Cornish mining town, in southwestern Wisconsin.
