Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

Mill Creek Run is now on the website as a pattern AND a kit!  The pattern alone is $14.00 (if you have ever purchased one of Jan's patterns in the past, you will know why the cost ..... her directions and graphics are PHENOMENAL).  The kit is $90.00 which includes the pattern.

Here is the link ......   http://shakerwoodwoolens.com/mill-creek-run/

We've had torrential downpours today in the Piedmont region of SC with another band headed our way. But that doesn't mean we can't have fun in the dye pots!

Introducing "Mill Creek Run". We're taking orders for the pattern which should be here by the end of the week. Look on our website on the Crane Design page. We will start dyeing the kits tomorrow and will have an availability date and price withing a few days. So excited about this one!!

Wool dyeing? ..... I think not .....

No wool dyeing yesterday or today! I'd rather have snow than this icy/freezing rain/sleet stuff. Prayers that our power holds. We don't have a good track record for keeping the power on with this mess!


We did have about of inch of show this morning but that sneaky little ice pack is hidden underneath.  Think I will call a snow day again!

Back in the saddle .....

I usually take my birthday off (it was last week) to have a day with no phone, no Facebook, no "web-surfing" ..... just me and my Bernina humming along .... watching Criminal Minds marathons or PBS Masterpiece. But the weather on that day was PERFECT for dyeing wool. Soooo, since last Friday was cold and raining, I moved my birthday to Friday and spent part of the day hooking instead. 


This is a project that has been sitting in limbo for 13 (yes, THIRTEEN) years. It is also my first ever hooking project.  I plan on taking lessons (again) because there is ALWAYS something I can learn.


It's supposed to be cold and raining again this Friday.  A coincidence  ....... hmmmm.
