Three "Bleautiful" Things......





This was the sky last weekend during the heat wave - it was the most beautiful color of blue.











And here is my beautiful blue yarn - (that won a blue ribbon)










And here is the BIG blue ribbon that I won for my crocheted "hobo" bag. I used all the yarn that I spun "learning" to spin - including some Pitt Island Merino and some Gottland from New Zealand from Kathy, and lots of different samples from my teacher Yvonne (check out her "chicken house adventure"!) including alpaca (- a dream to spin), some Correydale and and a whole bunch of colored Angora locks that I hand carded and plied with the Correydale and some other pretty white wool which escapes me now. (the reason it escapes me is because I DIDN"T WRITE IT DOWN, ok, there I said it!) Anyhow, I still got a beautiful Blue ribbon even if I (oh, how embarassing) forgot to tie up a few loose ends...

Congratulations again! What wonderful spinning you do now! I'm still searching for the perfect project for my skein of "fiber samples" from Kathy.

What a wonderful way to use all your samples! And congratulations on all your blue ribbons!

Kathy said...

I am so happy for you, Tina! What neat yarn and bag! You go, Girlfriend! :)

Oh so good on you Tina. Congratulations. I laughed out loud at your blue sky picture. A bajillion years ago I was moving back to the west coast from Florida and when we saw blue sky in Arizona at a rest stop, we shot the camera heavenward but it was the days of film and the shop didn't develop our shot, deeming it a mistake.

The Last Rose of Summer
(1)

Tis the last rose of summer

Left blooming alone;

All her lovely companions

Are faded and gone;

No flower of her kindred,

No rose-bud is nigh,

to reflect back her blushes,

Or give sigh for sigh.

(2)

I'll not leave thee, thou lone one!

To pine on the stem;

Since the lovely are sleeping,

Go, sleep thou with them.

thus kindly I scatter

Thy leaves o'er the bed

Where thy mates of the garden

Lie scentless and dead.
(3)

Soon may I follow,

When friendships decay,

And from Love's shining circle

The gems drop away.

When true hearts lie withered,

And fond ones are flown,

O! who would inhabit

This bleak world alone?
