Of course my favorite Pair of gloves sold! Also one of my favorite scarves. Its hard to be an artist sometimes when pieces sell.

Its been a long Year.

So… I realize I hadn’t posted in a bit. This was due to a multitude of things.
My computer failing. Going through three phones. I now have a great phone.
A strong Instagram following @goldenhares.

That isn’t the same as post with a story….

So, how to sum up this last year…
I have on going Kidney problems….
IVs hurt like a you know what.
Sometimes you leave the Hospital as in much pain as you went in with.
I raised way too many meat birds.
I learned to dye with mushrooms better.
I started making mushroom dyed and eco printed gloves..

. ( keep checking the shop or local events for them, as they sell out quickly.

Got Killian ( An angora rabbit, at the Humboldt rabbit show last year)
I found beauty in southern Humboldt, as I had a job down there last year until my kidney trouble.

Mendocino County fair and Apple Show is a blast!

I think no one knew my scarves were for sale so I am going to try to get more done for the next market. I also had one scarf that sold that I didn’t have a picture of.

 

Then I had this great cotton shirt that I dyed with the cannabis dye then also eco printed.Up-cycling and being able to reuse the clothes that re in the community I live in are as important as how ecological it is.

Here is the flyer for the next one!

Humboldt Handweavers and Spinners Guild- Ace in the Hole Romneys

 

Ace In the Hole Romney’s spoke at our Guild this month.

The Meeting started off with sharing. I snapped this photo of one of my favorite ladies knitting a signature hat!

 

Then of course on with the Show about Ace in the Hole Romney! 20160310_195756 - Copy

His talk was very interesting. Even though I have known him for a bit there were lots of parts of his past in agriculture I hadn’t known. We are very lucky here in Humboldt that people come here to cultivate what they love. This man loves raising Romneys and you can see from how his animals are cared for. Humboldt is truly gifted with these type of artisans who keep small scale breeding alive.

Here were some of his products. You can always find his fleeces at the Humboldt County Fair too!

 

 

 

Ganjier Spring Kick Off Mateel

I happened to go to the Ganjier Spring Kick Off, after the rabbit show. I ended up leaving early because I won the rabbit from the rabbit show.But from what I saw it was awesome.

These are flavored but not artificially its flavored with the terpenes from the plant I REALLY wish someone up here would carry them.

Humboldt Rabbit Show- Spring Hop

If yo never grew up in 4-H maybe you don’t know, but you can show rabbits. This is an excellent place to find a pet if you are going to get one, or a papered animal too. I went to the Spring Hop in Humboldt this year.

 

I went because as a child I showed meat rabbits and then Angora rabbits. This is what you usually do when you under 9 in 4-H.

 

Of Course there was a raffle table. With An Angora Rabbit!!! That I later took home.

 

Can not forget the cavies either
