New in the Shop: Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

New in the shop, Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows. Broken toys, faded colors; graveyards, old pawn shops; broken hearts, dirty windows. Some things are just filled with sadness. With loss. With souvenirs of a life. If it's one person who could write about life, it was John Prine. In his passing, we are left with the souvenirs he gave us. Beautiful moments forever encased in music. Each note a stitch in a greater story, a greater project. What souvenir would you make with this yarn? HaldeCraft HandDyed yarns started life in 2007 in a small yarn store in Gainesville, Florida...

Whoo, what a week. Troublesome gave me a bit of a scare yesterday; apparently he got in a fight with something, some time between 10 PM on Monday and 8 AM on Tuesday. I knew he was acting weird (sleeping really heavily and not coming to me when I called) but I didn’t realize how weird until he finally came down low enough from the shelves he was on, and then he growled at me when I picked him up. He has *never* growled at me before, so I rushed him off to an emergency vet visit (after losing Wilder...

I’m catching up on a lot of things this week. Not getting ahead, mind you, but catching up! And I’m heading out of town tomorrow morning — I’ll be bringing some writing work with me, and of course I’ll have access to email and social media, but I won’t be in the studio so anything ordered after about late this afternoon will have to go out Monday. In ceramics, I’m recovering from Socks breaking a bunch of hard work. I’m trying to shrug it off - everyone’s a critic - and focus on more, better work. I have a lot...

These days at HaldeCraft I either feel completely on top of things and that everything gets done, or completely overwhelmed by things and that nothing gets accomplished. And those kind of days can happen back to back! In ceramics, desire for the WTF mugs seems to have calmed down, so that’s allowing me to get some other work done. I had a whole bunch of things I wanted to add to the Colorful Collection by the beginning of October, and hopefully I have enough time now to get those done. It is kind of fun sitting down and doing a...

Just a quick post today - I’m firing the kiln and then as soon as it’s done, I’m heading out of town for a day (maybe two, depending on how tired I am by the time I’d need to decide between driving back tomorrow and going to sleep, haha). There is a lot going on in the studio, though, even though I forgot to whip up a graphic for it. Uhm, have a random photo as a spacer? (tries to distract you with jazzhands) Photo is of Troublesome and Wilder; I mentioned this in the HaldeCult (the HaldeCraft community page...
