It's My Party And I'll Ply If I Want To!

Last month (April 20th) I celebrated my Birthday in style. By that I mean I spent the entire day in the yard spinning and knitting, while listening to podcasts with my sister. It was fabulous!

The sun was shining, the magnolia tree was in full bloom and we had been gifted with Summer weather. With beignets and coffee in the morning and delicious coconut Thai that evening I was thoroughly pampered by my lovely family.

My family gets along strangely well, so spending the whole day doing nothing in our yard is my ultimate treat. We are just as quiet as we can be loud. We play games so enthusiastically that it's sometimes frightening to newbies. And we're all a little weird (in a good way). 

But how do you like to celebrate your birthday! What special traditions have you cultivated or who makes your day perfect. 

I like to pick dandelions that have gone to seed and blow them like a naughty child. 'Cause that's my jam.

With the addition of the spinning tools I received for my birthday I can continue to spin and ply to my hearts content in and uninterrupted flow of fiber, to dye, to yarn without stopping.

Because outside of a good curry and coffee there is no faster way to my heart than feeding the fiber beast within.
