Welcome to Moonlight and Laughter! My name is Marilla O’Brien and I am a dyer, knitter, spinner and all around fiber enthusiast. Inspiration for dyeing comes from the landscape surrounding me in the beautiful St. Lawrence River Valley and Adirondack Mountains. It seems that every drive or walk brings to mind a color combination I can’t wait to try on my next dyeing day.
Please visit my Etsy shop if you are interested in purchasing my hand dyed fiber and yarn.
A visit to my Facebook page will allow you to check out the latest Moonlight and Laughter news. I also post special sales and discounts just for my Facebook friends, so please stop by and become a friend.
I have a Moonlight and Laughter blog where you can find out about what is coming out of my dye studio, as well as a bit about what is going on in my life that is not dyeing, knitting or spinning.
I have listed some of the sari silk ribbon I recently received in the shop.
Silk ribbons are a versatile product that can be used for knitting and crocheting, weaving, rug hooking, embellishments in both art batts and scrapbooking, and anyplace your imagination can take you. I intend to cover a lampshade with the ribbons. I think it will make a big statement in the decor of my shop. Now I just have to find the time to actually do it. I always have more ideas than I have the time to accomplish these ideas, the fate of many an artist and crafter, I know.
