The sun is out, it’s 9°. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. I’ve gotten nothing done yet for our meal, still need to make my cornbread and thaw the turkey breast but that won’t take long. Brad and I both are battling bursitis, his left shoulder, my right one. Hard to sleep when you hurt, but such is life. It could be worse!
My shoulder bothers me to type much so this is it for today. Hope to do better tomorrow. Have a blessed RED Friday, ya’ll. Stay warm.
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.
