The 10 lb estimate I gave for the Allons-Y! Fiber Arts fiber stash turned out to be 24 lbs. Next up is what you see in this photo. The bottom shelf is easy. Those are 1 lb bags of fiber, all seven of them. The two baskets and the plastic bin contain samples of fiber from a variety of vendors from my days with a Facebook fiber group. The two bags to the right on the top shelf are unfinished spinning projects that I need to finish. Everything else on the top shelf is from various suppliers. All of it needs to be inventoried and is next on the list.
After that I will tackle the four bins on the top two shelves of this shelving unit. One bin contains cotton, one contains silk and silk blends, one contains a pound of superfine Merino and samples of Down Breeds, the fourth is full of alpaca, bison and coarser wool. The pillow case on the top has a scoured BFL fleece in it.
When I’ve finished everything on the two wire racks I’ll get back to that top shelf on the wall. For now I’ll stick to the more easily accessible fiber in my inventory.
It’s been a slow, lazy day for the both of us. The colder weather arrived a bit earlier than projected and we’ve had the heat pump on emergency heat since this morning. It’s been sprinkling rain and temps have been hovering at freezing all afternoon. It’s down to 28° at 7:40 pm. Brad stayed home from church giving his meds a chance to work. The antibiotic is kicking his butt, but it’s working. I’m glad he was able to do what he wanted on Friday and take it easy this weekend. He’s enjoying his retirement from forty hour work weeks and being able to put his health first instead of working until he’s exhausted.
The kitchen is clean, dishwasher set to come on after we’ve gone to bed. Brad will be hitting the shower soon and then it’ll be my turn. Even though I had a long nap this afternoon I’m looking forward to getting to bed before 11 pm for a change. Hope your Sunday has been a blessed one.
