Welcome

Towels on the loom.
We moved from town to the country in 1994.  I called our transition from a tiny town lot to 40 acres of aggressive wilderness 'rurification'.  We got to know the land, the birds, the trees [and the local health department really well since we had to put in a hugely expanded septic system right away.]  We raised sheep for a while.  We started our businesses.  We had two children.  I became a dyer and weaver.  In 1996, I started writing stories about our adventures and they've been saved on various generations of floppy discs and hard drives ever since, waiting to be read.   It's time to share them.  This blog is my adventure in sharing what goes on in my tiny corner of the rural south central highlands of Indiana.   Note: 'highlands' is a subjective term.  We Hoosiers take what little altitude we can find [800 ft above sea level max] and celebrate it by giving it lofty names.

My days are spent gardening, homeschooling, running a business, making fiber art of all kinds, and teaching.  I teach many things, at fiber festivals, the LYS, at my studio:  dyeing, weaving, spinning, crochet, color theory, and creativity    I write about everything. 

Make yourself at home, and feel free to comment and ask questions.
