Happy New Year Out There!
I meant to blog on NYE- Which is my birthday but, things got weirdly busy…And then something broke in my ipad pro- which is the device where I hold all my blog content- images, links etc. It was full of stuff to show up. I’ll see what I can do via this ancient desktop.
Here comes updates!
I received cash gifts before my birthday. I spent a few weeks making online purchases of yarns and crystals and some random items I decided to gift myself with. I set aside all the packages to open on my birthday.

I loved opening everything up. My purchases included a few mystery yarn packages from new to me Etsy shops.

We should go directly to the first Mystery bag of yarn, it’s from Crystalskye’s Hand Dyed “One Skein at a time”

Crystalskye’s Hand Dyed pet oriented packaging was extra fun. A little bag of treats and a handwritten note were included.
I am very pleased with this mystery purchase.

I have already been into this yarn. If you follow me on Instagram, I have posted images of my latest “work in progress” you will see how it’s coming together, as I go along.

The yellow yarn from Crystalskyes Hand Dyed used for skulls and hands in my “Aunties” canvas.

My 2nd package of yarns off the Etsy website was from A Girl and her wool at https://www.etsy.com/shop/agirlandherwool
This was a cool little deal- $3 for a “mini skein”.
Each 23 yard mini skein is of 4 ply fingering weight, 75% SW Merino/25% nylon

Ten little skeins from A Girl and her Wool.

Most of the rest of the packages were assorted crystal beads to add to my yard project….which is getting bigger and bigger and extending across 6 trees now!

Before I tear out of here, I have a canvas over at the “Here and Now” exhibit happening NOW thru February 21st, 2021/at Marin Museum of Contemporary Art.
Well, hey, here’s a link to it! https://marinmoca.org/exhibitions/event/129.
Thanks for checking in on my blog. As soon as I get my poor ipad fixed, I will be more at home with blogging. Stay cozy and safe!
