Spring fever

Spring comes, and a girl's thoughts turn to .....fiber arts?

This morning finds me alternately writing bits in the next chapter of EIMH while tieing heddle strings for my inkle loom and the stacks of unspun fiber I have sitting around the house are starting to look mighty pretty to me...and I am starting to find pictures of Japanese spinners from back in the day and thinking about creating a period correct spinning wheel....


And my box of silk embroidery threads is calling my name...to embroider pansies.


Now this is a weird case of spring fever.  What's next, Temari balls?

It's not by accident one of the characters in EIMH is a weaver...LOL.
