Youer than You...

 "Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You", a quote from Dr Seuss' Happy Birthday to You.

This is the theme of today's Corner View. I had to do a little thinking about this. Just a little, though.
I am obsessed with making things in general, but Iespecially like making things with fiber. I love to spin, dye, knit, crochet and have even been known to weave a bit.
I am often found with yarn or fibers of some type in my hands. I have told people it is my own form of Prozac! If you were to ask most people who know me well, they would probably mention how my hands are rarely still. My hands are almost always busy in some way, shape or form. When they aren't, I am probably sleeping!
Corner View is a weekly appointment with bloggers all over the world, hosted by Francesca. Visit her Corner for links from other bloggers all over the world.

226 yards of bliss

I attended the Arkansas Fiber Arts Extravaganza this past weekend. While there, I taught a class entitled, "Drapable Crochet". I didn't spend a lot while I was there, as it was a working gig. However, I always like to have a little something to remind me of an event. I picked up a lovely batt, composed of Finn wool, silk and Firestar. It's hard to fully appreciate from this photo, but it has both a halo and a shine. It also has some sparkle. It spun up into 226 yards of fluffy, silky, sparkly two-ply yumminess. I purchased it from Woodenspinner- Fibers by Brenda. You can email her at She had many lovely batts in assorted colors, but I am a sucker for tonal ivories and whites. This colorway is called "Ice Princess". Get yours now!
