My Cherie Hibiscus, always a ray of sunshine! 🌺 ☀️ 🌺 #tropicalhibiscus #hibiscus #flowers #flowersofinstagram #flowerstagram


My Cherie Hibiscus I got 7 years ago from our neighbor we kitty sit for is doing incredible this year. There are currently 8 blooms with 6 looking like they’ll bloom tomorrow and many more on the way. This beautiful plant always provides me with so many smiles. ❤️🌺❤️ #tropicalhibiscus #hibiscus #flowers #flowersofinstagram #flowerstagram


I know I’ve been pretty quiet lately on the Ravelry upgrade issue front but rest assured I’m still keeping a close eye on the status of Ravelry’s upgrade and the functionality of my theme. I’ve been finding it difficult to continue spreading the word on the theme so I’d you are using my theme please pass the word on so we can make sure as many as possible can browse the site safely and comfortably. If anyone notices any issues with my theme that need addition please do not hesitate to reach out. I do have an minor update waiting but it’s only a few extremely minor adjustments so I’m waiting to push that update. Considering how poorly the official Ravelry team is handling this upgrade I will continue to keep this theme up to date for the foreseeable future. #ravelry #ravelrypro #ravelrydesigner #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #knittersofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #weaversofinstagram #newravelrydesign #knittersofravelry #ravelrycrochet #ravelrydesigner #ravelrydesigners #ravelryupdate #ravelryknitter #ravelryknitters #crochetersofravelry

Last photo for now of the extremely luxurious blends from @spottedewefibers. I’m looking forward to seeing how all of these spin ups and how they knit up. Each one has such different fiber characteristics so it’s going to be unite fascinating to see and feel the fabrics produced with each one to be able to determine best use cases for each blend. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #spottedewefibers #luxuryfiber #customblendfiber #wildsilk #wildsilkblends


Super fancy luscious fiber arrived to test out from @spottedewefibers. Becca is exploring custom blends and these are super luxurious!!!!! All of the fiber is high quality, beautifully blended, and the prep is top quality. I’m looking forward to spinning these up and seeing how these blends look when Becca dyed them up. The blends aren’t completely locked in yet. The Optim/Camel/Silk in particular is needing some percentage changes to help it hold together better. Overall I’m extremely impressed. My top two favorites are the two bottom braids. More photos of individual blends to follow. ❤️❤️❤️❤️#handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #spottedewefibers #luxuryfiber #customblendfiber #wildsilk #wildsilkblends

Day 14 of Tour de Fleece: well this day didn’t go as expected. I accidentally sliced my thumb while fixing breakfast. I tried to spin a wee bit on Magpie which didn’t work out as the bandaid made it difficult to draft. I spun at least a gram on my Juniper Phoenix and then spent the rest of the day making rolags. Thumb injury is all healed up ❤️ Fiber is @hipstrings #base12sal on Phoenix and Capture the Flag by @threewatersfarm on Magpie. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #TeamAkerworks2020 #teamdaedalus2020 #TeamJenkins2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #akerworks #3dprinting #teedeehedgie #daedalusmagpie #magpiespinner #jenkinsturkishspindle #turkishspindle #twftdf2020 #twfjul20

So um... yea I fell off the Tour de Fleece wagon quite harshly. On July 13th we lost Petrie one of our Sugar Gliders and are currently trying to help our last glider left Teemo who is suffering from the same unknown toxin. He’s currently on medication and we are hoping for test results that will give us a better idea of what the source might be. . .
