New Demented Creations

I have some new yummie creations for LunabudKnits......

Demented Spinning Batts!!

I have been playing around with the Strauch Mad Batt'r and it has definitely been a dementedly fun time. So much fun that they're going to take me away he-he-ha-ha-ho-ho-hum-hum! It's all about fun art battyness with these lovelies! Fiber is loaded on in droves of chunky goodness with spots of sweet lucidity. The demented batts are all wool based, but have some of the most spectacular add ins I have. I will try to list all the madening little bits, but you might get some other fun hidden stuff as well such as mohair locks, flax, hemp, bamboo, glitz, angelina, firestar, cotton, silk, silk noil, sari silk, ribbons, wensleydale, lincoln, merino, tunis, etc.

A Long Walk

A friend of my Dad's has the good fortune to live on a 300+ acre farm with a multitude of paths and old grown over roads. As time allows, which has not been very often as of late, I like to take a carefree walk along the dirt, gravel and black topped paths.

Roads Leading to far away barns

This lady bug should tread lightly!

Because danger lurks below

Ant Swarms

Old dilapidate buildings.

View of the main compound.

It's a game of cat and bird.

Or raccoon and bird.

Winter Wheat before harvesting.

Yarrow a local wild flower.

Barns with silos.

The city creeps closer day by day.

But it does not seem to effect the sparrow population.

Wild Black Berries.


Queen Anne's Lace.

Dirt Road.

Flower from the tree above.

Old machinery under the evening sky.

Geese flying off in the sun set.

And as the moon shows it's face you know the day is done.

Kitty Snack

Yes, our Little Kitty is not quite so little any more and definitely spoiled rotten to the bone. Bill always has a late night snack before going to bed and Little Kitty is always right there to beg for a scrap or two. And Bill has grown rather fond of Little Kitty, can not seem to resist the charm of our fat little furry friend when he comes begging.

Last year, we had an absolute blast at the KY Wool Fest in the Wool Tent. This year is gearing up to be just as fun for the whole family! There are tons of arts & crafts, demonstrations, a petting zoo, music, and of course an entire tent full of fibery goodness. Mark your Calenders for October 1-3 and come visit us in Falmouth, KY!

Lunabud Knits at Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival!

It has been a long time coming for my post about the Kentucky sheep and Fiber Festival! I have to say it was an absolute blast and I will definitely be back for more next year! About the only draw back was that on set up day, I pulled a muscle and probably tore a ligament in my arm and am just now to the point that I can sit at the puter with out pain. Other than that, it was an absolutely fabulous week end!

Here are a few pictures for you:) I have a ton more and hope to get them up soon! If you couldn't make it this year, I sure hope you do next year!

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
