This is turning into the month of weekend outings that include horses. Not mad about it.

Madder root produces some gorgeous rust and orangey-red colors for sure, but my favorite shades are on the lighter end of it's color spectrum. Give me these peachy pinks every time!

The kids went with white pumpkins this year. Does this mean my aesthetic is rubbing off on them or is this a fluke? 🤗

The most lovely fall morning in our backyard. Even the church bells agree! #dyegarden #fallcolor #backyard #naturalcolor #ozarks
I've been hunting pokeberry for weeks with no luck, but today....today! My friend Kelsey of @o.m.flowerco introduced me to her sweet neighbor who was more than happy to let me help myself to hers! I put Smith on garden snake duty (he yelled enough to scare any away) and went to work. Can't wait to share the results from this pot!

Real talk: I've been dealing with anxiety and mild depression issues for the last three years and have learned a lot of ways to manage them, along with being on a low dosage of medication. It's not something I felt comfortable sharing until recently in this space but I'm there now. When I talk about how weaving is a form of therapy, it's because it really is one of the healthiest methods I've used to help bring me to a more calm place when my anxiety gets triggered. It's been a balm and a tool at the same time. It's helped me stay connected when I'd rather withdraw and it's offered solace when all I needed was a quiet thing to keep my hands busy.
I'm so thankful for this medium and this platform to share both our creativity and our humanity. I hope in sharing, it encourages someone else that may be feeling the weight of life to be extra heavy today.

Currently sold out of almost everything in the shop but I'll be restocking looms and weaving kits on Thursday! I've got some beautiful roving and soft pink wool that are going into a fiber pack and dyeing up the next batch of naturally dyed wool to have those available early next month. I'm also working on my next two e-courses that will be ready for the holiday gifting season! .
.
I'm taking a short break from workshops for the next few weeks to keep all of these plates spinning but there are talks of a Boston workshop on the horizon!!! 👐🏾👐🏽👐🏼 It's finally feeling like fall here in the Ozarks. Are you feeling the siren call to hibernate and make things after the sun goes down or is it just me? Ha!
Up high where the kitty can't get them. Repotting my pretty pilea peperomioides as soon as the planter I made at @springfieldpottery is finished. If you need your own pilea pepperoni plant 🍕🌱, @fernshopcincinnati stocks them but they go quickly! .

Weekending pretty hard over here. Mini horses and all. #rutledgewilsonfarm
My finished project for @theknitshow was a hybrid wall hanging with a double-crocheted base that I added rya knots to for the fringe. Then I threw on some roving with a soumak stitch and then added plain weave with a chunky fiber c/o @makersmercantile. I am interested to see what other ways crochet and knitting lend themselves to woven pieces in the ways their structures work together. If you don't own a loom but know how to crochet, head over to the @theknitshow's YouTube channel and click on episode 108 to see how it's done!
Only one Natural Dye Fiber Pack left in the shop! I'm so tempted to hold it back and weave something with it instead...
Well, hello! Mama got some weaving time yesterday and suddenly the ideas are flowing! Ever feel stuck? I get that way when something feels overwhelming...in life, in work, in the world. I had to sit down anyway and wait a minute to let my mind settle and then I was ready. Weaving is one of those practices that lets things slow down long enough to reconnect with yourself...something I've been needing so much lately. What does weaving do for you? Samesies?

Finishing up their plain weave on top so they can get those wall hangings off the loom. These girls from last week's Dallas class were speedy new weavers! Wanting to FINALLY learn to weave this fall? I'm now sharing all of the information I've been teaching at my workshops organized and fleshed out even more in my new video e-course, Woven: First Steps. Designed for the absolute beginner but it includes tips and techniques those more familiar with their loom will enjoy. There's also a bonus necklace tutorial at the end! Enroll now at Racheldenbow.com.
A limited run of naturally dyed fiber packs are now available in my shop! I used three types of beautiful 100% wool and thoroughly enjoyed using Coreopsis, Marigold, Goldenrod, Madder Root, Avocado Pit, Onion Skins, and Annatto Seeds to dye with skein. Each fiber pack includes roughly 350g of yarn and was designed with weavers in mind. Click through to grab yours before they're gone!

Sharing my hand-stitched solution to a store-bought pouf over at @abeautifulmess today! This one only cost about $35, friends. You're welcome! ✂️✂️✂️
Aren't these ladies adorable? This is the forced "now look at a friend" pose I made them do but now I think it could be a PSA for how workshops are a great way to make friends as adults. 👯👯👯 I love you, Dallas!
