Brad is continuing to recover from shoulder surgery and I am dealing with the aftermath of kidney stone surgery so neither one of us is up to doing much. It’s mostly pain control for him and dealing with side effects from medications for me at this point, but we are doing pretty well all things considered.
Not being in the mood to write I don’t plan on daily posts for a bit. I skipped yesterday and wanted to keep it simple today. I’ve got a couple of household chores that need my attention and I really should work on my knitting later.
It’s raining again which is a bit of a bummer. Some sunshine would be nice for a change but we take what we get after all. Have a blessed weekend everyone.
I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl.
I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles.
In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s.
I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
