Rosebud and Dirty Grapes are making me drool with excitement! I know that sounds horribly unattractive, and it most likely is, but I love these!

P.S. : This Rocks!

Wow, these are beautiful! Rosebud and Scrappy especially - I'd snap those right up if I saw those in a store.

I love gravel and Texas springtime.  These are beautiful.  I hope I can someday spin something half as lovely.

OK, gotta ask.  How do you get such wonderful pictures??  Do you use a photo box?

I'm loving your yarns!

Had a bonus day at Farmer's Market today where I sold 4 skeins of yarn!  I'm stoked!!

Thank you!

So, I use a sort-of photobox. I made one out of a cardboard box and freezer paper. I don't use any lightbulbs, I just set the makeshift photobox in the window and use natural light! Making a photobox is pretty easy. Much less scary than I originally thought. (and cheap too!)

Congrats on selling the yarn!

I live in San Antonio and the wildflowers are gorgeous this year! Last year there were almost NO flowers! So bumming. Im glad to see there are more this year Smiley

I took several pictures of the bluebonnets this year! I had to make a yarn to match. Im glad you like it!! Smiley
