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.

Ravelympics - Craft or Bust


This week I was able to keep my pledge to Craft or Bust: I started a new yarn with the help of this wonderful COLORBombIts Kit custom made by the ever colorful Ms Velma.  Now I am also a COLORBOMBer in the Ravelympics, an annual fun event on Ravelry.  My challenge is to spin a fabulous yarn from all these gorgeous goodies combined with my own hand dyed cormo and firestar roving. Yesterday, I spun a thick and thin single with the cormo roving.  Another single will be made with the goodies wrapped and coiled around it.  These will then be plied to create a bulky yarn that will be knit up into a thick cowl  during the Olympics.  Fun!   

This week's farm picture:

What was your week like? 


  1. Can't wait to see your yarn! I love the colors!

  2. Hi Luna! Love, love, LOVE the combo of your singles with your new BOMBits kit!! Glad to have you as part of our Team. Go, Team, GO!

    Cutie-patootie sheep, too. :)

  3. Thanks Kelly, they are some of favorites, too.

    And thanks, Ms Velma for the creating such a fab miz of colors and textures. I can't wait to see what I spin up either!

  4. I love the colors in that kit and can't wait to see the yarn and cowl when you're done! I also love the photos of your wooly guys. It is my sincerest wish to have some land and a small flock someday soon. Maybe you'll be up for me "picking your brain" for tips?

  5. Thanks Jill. And I'm always happy to help with getting started with sheep or anything else.

  6. Beautiful photo! And beautiful sheep! It's funny, the sheep around my area just don't seem to have very wooly coats this year. Does that have something to do with having a mild (not so cold) winter?

    You asked about my small photos lining up on my blog - I use a program called Windows Live Writer. It's a free download. What I do is insert a table, and then put my photos into the cell spaces of the table.

  7. Beautiftul colors! Cant wait to visit the farm again someday. Please let me know detailed info about any classes or workshop you are planning. I have a friend that would be very interested in coming over for a beginning spinning workshope if one was offered before her gardening starts. She has a home business Gardener Girl.

  8. Hey Luna, sorry it has taken me so long to check out your blog. The page looks as beautiful as your artwork :). I have started to draw a few things for you. I can't wait till your shop opens. Congratulations and three cheers to all your hard work.


    PS. I am a woman of color, it is the essence of life and I am glad you are too. The pink and orange colorbombits kit is gorgeous.
