I have a doozy of a cold. I would like to sleep all the time but the coughing wakes me up. And if I sleep too much I start feeling sore all over. Last night I slept sitting up in the living room until 7am and then went to bed until almost 11 am.... Read more

The village where I volunteer is having a fund-raising soup supper so I got friends together to "paint" bowls for an added incentive. It is the 50th anniversary of the village, hence the initials and dates on the bottoms. We had such a fun time... Read more

Yarn Geek Fibers is a fabulous dyer of yarns and spinning fibers. When she does festivals she has samples of her yarns both knitted and crocheted but she did not have anything woven. At her last show in the fall she gave me two different colors... Read more
Finally working on my loom at home
Monday, February 25, 2019      3 comments

It is so easy to weave at the village but for some reason my loom at home has sat empty for far, far too long. But today I started on a project that I hope I can finish by Saturday morning. We will see. Then I will have a good post showing all t... Read more

Last night was the spinners meeting - even though we were to have snow. We live in Iowa and get used to bad roads during the winter. It just means slow down and pay attention as you drive. ... Read more
Hat repair

This is the one I could not do last night because of no connection to the photos! A friend of a friend had a hat that was loved. But, like all loved hats, had developed a hole. ... Read more

Final finishing
Wednesday, February 13, 2019      5 comments

It has been so dry in the house that if I wash a knit and pin it out, or even just pat it out, it dries in less than 24 hours. That has spurred me on to get a stack of washing done! ... Read more
