It's Good To Be The Queen!

This is a small next wrap, dyed in fuchsia, reds, and purples. It is very similar to the small neck scarf shown on a previous posting. The wool side is a blue red and an orange red. I think it is kind of fun to have things that are designed to keep you warm also "look warm". I hope that the color combinations here will accomplish that.

We are trying not to turn our furnace on and as the temps drop out of doors, it gets more and more difficult to find ways to keep warm without the furnace. We have three "hot spots" in the house, the bathroom and my studio/dining room/office and Jim's office. We have little space heaters in these rooms to chase away the chill, and I, of course, keep a felt hat on to stay warm. Our little "QUEEN" Frankie, the chihuahua, has found the perfect solution to keeping her skinny self warm...a full fleece of Icelandic wool. Oh yes, it is good to be the QUEEN!

My brother, Jason, remains in the hospital, is having trouble with speech, balance, has passed out or possibly another stroke. Had a rough night. Please continue your prayers on his behalf. We appreciate them and pray that God honors them all.



ps: Nice article on felting...enjoy!

Smart doggie! And beautiful scarf. I guess I will have to get you another fleece so you won't have to leave Frankie in the cold.

haha Laura, she is just so spoiled, isn't she. She also has a small skin irritation on her back and I think she finds the lanolin to be soothing to the area as well. Yeah, she is pretty smart...when she wants to be...other times, not so much. But she is loved!

smart puppy!!! I hope your brother get well soon to celebrate the holidays.
Beautiful colors! what kind of dyes are you using? I am not happy with my jacquard acid dyes :(
Not getting vivid colors at all! If you sell I would like to buy it.

Dear Iona,
I am using the Jacquard Acid Dyes. Might I suggest more citric acid, or more dye. I do a lot of over dyeing to achieve the depth of color that I want. Might try that as well. Feel free to call me next time you are dyeing and I'll help you, okay?

Yes it is good to be the queen.

I hope your brother recovers and or at least is comfortable. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Ah, I would love to curl up on one of those fleeces too. Love the felting. The fushia is gorgeous.

You do such lovely work. I have been following your blog for some time now and am so sad for you and your brother. I hope you have had some better news by now.
