I am glad that you like everything.  The california red is not coated, but there isn't much VM in it and it is not too greasy.  The california red is supposedly to be a rare breed.  I read it online, not sure how true that is.  The cormo is very soft.  I am having the fleece processed into rovings right now.    

I am not sure how many batts are considered medium items and I like making them.  So I send you quite a few.  I like making crazy batt, but I try to make them in the colorway that you like. Smiley

I name each batt.  The red/orange/yellow batt is named "tequilla sunrise".  The green/brown batt is named "woodsy".  The multiple color batt is a non-named crazy batt.  The blue/brown batt is called "alaska".  

The orifice hook is a sheep.  I try to make a sheep and my bf agreed it look like a sheep. Cheesy

Knock it off you guys - you're giving me a big head

I just love the apron and wore it every day for the homesteading weekend (except when I was painting roving)

I kept the original dyed roving I was going to send to Lissa because it matched the mimosa blossom yarn/roving she sent me!  Now to get the yardage and figure out a special project using these yarns!

Can't wait for PH to get her package!!!

Oh yeah...the orifice hook definitely looks like a sheep! I used it today  Cheesy  The cormo IS lush! I just washed the raw fleece today, not much vm at all , and the california red had very little grease. I'm trying to finish off some spinning so I can clear my bobbins to play with the batts.

Sooo I received my package the other day from RhymeswOrange! I was headed out the door to our local farmers market to do some spinning with some friends and low and behold there my package was. I was really excited and opened the top but stopped myself so my friends and I could see what was inside together Cheesy I was amazed at how much she spoiled me! A pretty card, TONS of hand-dyed roving in NEON colors just to my liking! And a cute hand-sewn reversible project bag made out of an asian print that MATCHES my kimono I made for my senior project!!! I am so stoked to receive such great gifts and now I feel like I don't match what I sent!!! ;_;

On to the photos! I realized I forgot to take a picture of the beautifully spun ball of yarn she spun for me but trust me, it's amazing!

These are all millends, I love how BRIGHT in real life they are!!!








Thank you sooooo much RhymeswOrange <3!

I've since made 3 more of these bags.  They stitch up fast!  The pattern is the ditty bag from www.anyonecanquilt.com.

I love that reversable bag!

I'll keep that in mind UntouchableFace, you might find one in your IYP package. lol
