October 2nd, 2010

Dear Blog,

I have been away for a while. This is regretful.

This summer ended with many changes in my life. I believe they are all positive, but the process has not been easy. Nor is it over.

One of the momentary benefits has been the freedom to get back to one of my true loves: All things fiber. My spinning wheel has been watching me with longing eyes. A few new knitting projects have crept into my lap. I've been dreaming of new garments, hungry for the process of pattern drafting. I want to design fabric, lots of fabric. The are new tools in my arsenal that are fueling old ideas for layering, creating depth on the yardage surface. I'm fighting the urge to jump into it all at once.

Instead, I will start in one small corner. I will sketch. I will order fresh dyes. I will make luscious fabric. After that, who knows?

With Love,
Funky C.
