Beautiful Man

Spinning yarn for a man is always a challenge. But luckily, this yarn is like this wonderful man - Ken - beautiful, eclectic, solid, kind, generous, wild, tall and a good soul. We met over a beer and some Shakin' it Fast music... yup... I had on the good jeans. Next thing I knew we were going for food with a group of folks and laughing until my ribs hurt. Oh yes, the way to my heart is food, beer, and dancing in Wysteria. But I fell in love that night with a wonderful human being. The reason these two yarns took so long to transpire is that Ken is not to be contained and is definitely not one sided or black and white. He is multifaceted, very Prada and Dolce, but not snobby and definitely not boring. And while he is the wildest ride you have ever been on.... he is rich and deep and pure inside. You will laugh until you cry but he will always be there by your side and if you are lucky, there will be dancing.

Memorial
This first wild yarn was started almost a year ago when I went to my very first LGBT Memorial Day weekend here at Pensacola Beach. It was wild and fun and a day I will never forget.

So, the first yarn is inspired from our Memorial Day extravaganza.... jello shots, cute boys, flags, silk, topless girls, drama, and that one straight guy that just got out of jail - oh my.

Upright
The second baby lock yarn is inspired by a beautiful soft, long lasting, kind friend that is tried and true. Upright but not uptight! Like a good friend, it will last a lifetime.

He left me, as they all do, and headed to the Big Apple for a new life but I know he isn't far and home is on the water.

And in other news.......
I did not renew my website for now. I may change my mind because looking at it today it made me very sad to see "website suspended". On a positive tip, the lack of pressure has inspired some good work and classes and fun things that take me back to my art. While I am always HollyEQQ, I am no longer an official business. I am simply an artist who enjoys working with wool and people. I have no idea where I will be selling but I am sure I will find a way. :)

p.s. I miss LJ so I thought I would post here. But most of me is now on Facebook - Holly EQQ

New Year, New Day Sale
So, it is a new year at HollyEQQ.com and things are moving along nicely.  There is change on the horizon and honestly, I am taking it one day at a time.  I love being HollyEQQ and I love playing with yarns, locks and fiber and yet lately, life has taken me away more than it has pulled me towards.  And we know with art, it isn't an on demand kind of gig - it has to come from within.  I don't know what that means for HollyEQQ but I do know that I am still here and I am not going anywhere.  That said, it is time for some out with the old and in with the new - letting go of the past and moving towards the future.  And around these parts, that here means we are having a sale. 

20 percent off everything made by HollyEQQ and 10 percent off on spinning wheels

Refund after purchase or if you want me to send you a corrected invoice, just email me at HollyEQQ@hotmail.com

Happy Thursday my friends.  Happy New Year my friends. 
And to myself, Happy New Life.  I feel so renewed at 41 years old.  After 15 years of pain, surgeries, and just a crap ton of bad luck, it is nice for once to look forward to this next year, to look forward to the next 40 years!  I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings, good or bad.  And I am daily blessed. I am most amazed that I can go for a jog or dance all night long again.  Without most of you, that wouldn't be possible. 
I am forever grateful in ways that I will never fully be able to describe. I thank you, I thank you, I thank you. 
Happy 2012!
Holly, Mr. Ass, Damn Lil Dog, and our newest addition is a cat named Dawg (she picked me and she follows me around like a dog and won't leave the yard)
 
 
 
 
 
 
SO, I am sorry I haven't been posting here lately. With moving to using an Iphone at home and only using the laptop to update the website at wifi hotspots, it makes it hard to use Livejournal. But I am still here! I am still working. And I am on Facebook regularly with my normal crazy self! Just add me - Holly Eqq

Sunday Updates should be back in effect now that school is out.  Todays UPdate is loading to Flickr now but I am running out and I am not sure what time I will be getting back... hopefully today though!
And I post regularly on Facebook these days.  I keep trying to post here but since I can't access it from work, it is a little harder.
