Solar Active Yarn!

Today I spun the yarn on the top left and plyed it with solar active thread! The thread looks inncocent and white, basically blends into the yarn…UNTIL…you go out in the sun! Then the thread turns a nice bright pink. Sadly the sun is sinking fast and I couldn’t get a good picture of it while it was pink. I will try again tomorrow!

I have a bunch of other colors and plan to play around making some more yarn with them. I also have glow in the dark threads, though I have no idea how I could photograph the yarn glowing. Just think your hat or scarf could look a little different inside vs. outside! Fun!

I’ll be adding the new yarns to the shop tomorrow. I have one more drying that I havent been able to take a photo of yet, so should be four to update.

We are in the midst of potty training right now (day 3) And I cannot believe how well he is doing with it! He has been able to wear regular underwear all day accident-free, its actually kind of mind boggling…but very very awesome! We even took a trip to the library and then out to eat at a cute little italian restaurant. He was able to tell me in time everytime he needed to use the bathroom! Hurray!!

Post Xmas…

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday! Or, if your celebrating Hanukkah I hope your having a lovely time right now! We had a really good Christmas here in the Kenney house. We actually have three Christmas’s around here. On Christmas eve my family came over for food + fun. Christmas morning we celebrated amoung our own little family and then later Christmas day we head over to Tom’s parents for yet another bit of holiday feasting + fun.
Everyone seemed to have a really good time. We all probably ate way too much food, opened far too many presents and played Jenga many many times!
Now the scene at our house looks like something you could call a Toy Massacre. Toys all over the livingroom in various states of assembly. Its actually kind of grand! I plan to lay about reading my new books while the kids play themselves silly. Tomorrow, back to a little bit of sewing! I did however reopen the shop today with everything that was leftover from my holiday shows. new items coming soon!

Sleigh Bells Ring..

I have been so unbelievable un-crafty this week. Not one spool of thread, nor any stitch of fabric has crossed paths with my hands. It feels weird, really weird. Instead I have been baking, shopping, wrapping gifts, and all things holiday!
Tonight however I have to make room on the sewing table and get some Christmas gifts made! Stay tuned!
