Welcome, come right in!

Blueball Mountain Spindle & Needleworks, the Yarn and Fiber Shop in Historic Downtown Elizabethtown KY, has become the focus of the activities of All One Farms. The Farm, itself is still where the Sheep are raised, Gardens are kept and large dyeing and processing takes place. We continue to live simply, still seek to be self sustaining and remain conscious of our role in the universe. Every day is an adventure and it doesn't always take me where I plan. Come journey with me and share my experiences as I continue evolving my dream. Email me at luna.headhearthands@gmail.com.

The view from here.....

It is November 1 and undeniably Fall.  The rainy spring and summer has created a most spectacular display this year in Kentucky to rival any I've seen in my life in the North East.  Whatever season I'm in is my favorite, I admit. The lovely Earth as she changes her costume through the wheel of the year is a reminder to stop and take notice, to breathe and reflect on the joys and blessings in my life here at All One Farms. 

Soon after their Fall shearing next weeek, they will be selectively bred and carry their new lambs till the spring .

As the business of Blueball Mountain Spindle and Needleworks continues to grow, the farm has changed and developed as well.

The house renovation took a big leap a few weeks ago with the painting of the living room. I finally found a color that I didn't get tired of before it got onto the new walls. 

and does double duty as the shop till the cottage is done.


As the house is more and more finished, I've been able to host a number of Spin Ins and Knit Ins as well as GurlFrenz Craft Gatherings with local friends.

One guest room is now ready and served as accommodations for visting Spinning Teacher, Jacey Boggs (www. Insubordiknit.com) during an early Fall Workshop which I had the honor to fascilitate at our local Extension Office. 

and relax during down time
and share good food and good company in the cozy kitchen, comfy porch and sunny side yard.

Finally, since today is Dia de Los Muertos, I remember and honor my Mami, who passed away this Summer after a long illness. Her gifts to me include personal strength, perseverence and steadfastness in your goals, creative energy, and a love of beauty.  Blessed be.


  1. Luna, I am so glad to have run into you on Ravelry! It looks like you are really getting going on things! The pic of the cottage shop is so very pretty! Looks like it ought to be a post card! I love the green hutch! I want my hubby to build me one someday! Everything here is crazy lately! I am getting ready for an Art Show in 3 weeks and we are moving in a few months! Thank you for sharing your pics!
    One of these days, I am going to have to get one of your fleeces! They look incredible!

  2. Thank you Monica! So goood to be in touch again! It sounds like you are doing fabulously well too. What show are you doing/have done? Wish we could chit chat and compare notes.

    Found that hutch....at a local flea market! yowza!


  3. Hey there Luna,

    Thanks so much for coming over to visit me. :0) The sheep are all so fluffy and warm looking. I can already see the wonderful wool batts and roving and all the beautiful things you do to it with the dyes.

    I continue to ponder the idea to purchase a nice wheel and have our local spinner teach me. I so love crocheting and don't use much other than wools.

    Everything is looking really nice at your farm. All of the changes are part of the journey...I know you are enjoying it. I've been in our mountain home for 6 months now and still don't have the painting done on the main level and still much to do in my studio. I, like you, had a hard time finding a color that didn't bore me before it made it to the wall..hehe

    Oh, and the singer machine is not mine...I ran across it in a business and they let me take a photo of it.

    Stop by again and I'll do the same.
    Scatter Bliss...

  4. Thanks Steph....as you know life is a work in progress and we just keep a'traveling through it. Didn't know you moved...which mountains?

    Spinning is addicting and creating your own yarn to crochet or knit is just amazing. I continue to learn to knit....slowly! But just love making yarn as an end to itself.....Stay in touch!


  5. Luna - everything is just beautiful - you are such a talented and sweet person. Your farm looks gorgeous and I know it is - 'cause I've been there!!! Good luck with your "cottage" - I know it will be lovely - like you and your work! Cathy

  6. OK, Now I really need to come out for a visit:) I'm having a touch of envy over your cottage shop, but then again, who wouldn't!
