catch up

Today is a day that the housework will be done...dishes washed, laundry folded, budget laidout, filing done, floors mopped, or vacuumed, old sermons that were missed are being listened too, batts made, spinning of the alpaca roving named "dr.pepper" shall be done as well. It is a beautiful gray with black flecks and I am attempting to spinning a superfine lace weight! (yes this may be the final straw on the psych eval). Especially since WH and I are considering a mission trip to Haiti this summer and one to Africa next spring....LOL!!! But seriously the dusting will NOT get done today. (I can't justify spinning while fiber is flying afterword). Dust bunnies rule!!!!

spinning demo

This Saturday from 11-2 I will be at the Ellis Public Library giving a spinning and dying demo (refreshments will be served). I plan on doing a little crockpot dying as well as microwaving some roving. Most of the demo will be on explaining the different fibers and where they come from and drop spindling demos. I will have two wheels present and numerous fibers for the touchy-feely in all of us. Just a basic primer for those interested in learning a little more about spinning. I will also have some hand-dyed yarn and roving for sale if anyone is interested. A couple of ladies here in town have also expressed an interest in getting a knitting circle going in this part of western Kansas. If you want to know more or need directions please email me for info. Hope to see you there!!
