Butterfly in the Sky

March 24, 2014 by Jenny | 0 comments

The Ides of March involved five friends heading up to Magic Wings, the butterfly conservatory in Deerfield, MA.  We piled into the car – five people in a Prius is what we call “cozy” – and made our way up to see the pretty fluttery things.  I’m still working through all my pics, but here’s a sample of what we saw.  I’d love to go up again to spend more time there.

Finally got a pic of the necklace that Sandra made for me; it’s a huge labradorite cabochon with two pearls wrapped in copper wire. My new favorite combination!

I love this combination!

It makes me feel like a princess

Crochet Beret

Crochet is one of the yarny arts I CAN do but rarely actually do. I’m not a huge fan of the fabric appearance (while I adore the look of knit stitches) and I find the effect with variegated yarns to … Continue reading

Shiny New Yarn

I have been busy spinning in general, probably because I got re-energized by going to MA Sheep & Wool last week. These past couple of weeks have seen a huge increase in my production, prompted partly by the VERY warm … Continue reading
