no more hiatus

I'm back from every where, but i just don't feel like blogging, I've been knitting some socks, and made some stitch markers, making some beaded frogs and in general feeling like not doing anything I should be. we're still struggling with picking out a name for the baby brother. only about a month to go! I have a lot of house cleaning to do!

shop update

OK so I updated the shop at thedyeingarts.com/shop on the 11Th but I didn't have pictures for some of the rovings I put up. I hope to get pictures taken tomorrow afternoon while the light is good, hopefully the 2 year old child will cooperate as well. I also hope to get some pictures of the new yarns I got to make baby socks. other than that I've just been traveling a lot. so far I don't have anywhere i have to go in August so I guess I'll get caught up on some stuff then?

Happenings

It's been a bit hectic around here, a lot has been going on. I got another order for The Loopy ewe, then a few days before memorial day my mother in law passed away. then we had a vacation planned to go to Lilies war(an SCA Event) friends of ours came from England so we wanted to see them. I forgot my camera so hopefully I can get some pictures from someone. We just got back from that and I shipped out the loopy order yesterday. On Saturday we are having a memorial service for my MIL, and then we are traveling out to the east coast to spread the ashes in the ocean.

Bad blogger,

I have been a really bad blogger lately, sorry. I have some easter pictures I finally put up on flickr. I've been pretty busy with another order from the Loopy Ewe and of course we had to go to Reno for a Tattoo convention while I was trying to get stuff dyed, so now I'm a little behind.
Reno was pretty fun there were some screw-ups with the hotel room(s) but it all got straightened out (with upgrades). Babygurl liked the convention and met a lot of "new friends" as she called them. Pretty much anyone with tattoos was her new friend. She had such a blast going to the big parties (NTA members banquet, award ceremony) and she did really well on the airplanes to and from Reno.

O.K. so here are the easter pictures first:

Easter morning we had an easter egg hunt Grandpa Thom came over to help.

After that Grandpa Bill, Grandma Jane brought Tante K down to spend a few days with us. We went out to dinner with them and then dyed eggs when we got home. After grandma and grandpa left Tante K dyed some yarn with the leftover egg dyes(but I didn't take a picture of it.).

on Mon we went to the Zoo.

We got new swimming suits so we could go swimming in Reno. Unfortunately they were doing construction so the pool was closed.

shop update

Well I finally updated the shop with some cultivated silk and merino tencel rovings. I have a couple more yarns done but have yet to take pictures of them. I still feel kinda yucky until about 5 pm-ish and by then all the good picture taking sunlight is gone. On another note I finished the 24lb roving order for the Loopy Ewe and got it sent off on time, it should be up this week sometime. Yay!

travel, dyeing and rabbits.

Morning sickness (read all day nausia) really sucks and needs to go away! I haven't had the energy to do much of anything. the dishes are piled up and so is the laundry. Babygurl and I went up to Vermillion for an SCA event 2 weekends ago. I got to do some visiting and she got to play with some kids her age.

I got a new respirator, and the dyes (some of them)that I ordered got here last tuesday. On Thursday and Friday I dyed 12 lbs of the 24lb order I have to fill, now I'm still waiting on the rest of the dyes to finish . Hopefully they will be here tomorrow, keep your fingers crossed.

I created a tutorial on how to get your rabbit to like your 2 year old, it's very easy!

Give 2 year old a sliced apple. It gets results.

The main reason for not getting any dyeing done....

I need a new respirator....
I'll get into that more in a minute, first I want to show some pictures. I've been trying to get some of these posted since Christmas!

OK, now back to the reason I need a new respirator. The one I used the last time I was pregnant is covered in plaster gunk and dust from remodeling the Bathroom.

We found out the day after my birthday that goblin-baby #2 should be arriving sometime in September. I have a Dr. appointment on Tuesday and should have more info then.
