Neither of us slept well last night, neither of us is feeling well. Brad is napping and I’m about to. Sinus congestion, joint aches, headache. Yuck.
On a positive note…the mowers were here yesterday and the place looks great. First time I recall them coming so early to mow and it needed mowing. Grass was knee high on a grown deer in places. The trees are leafing out and it’s definitely Spring in our little corner of Texas.
I’ll be back to posting regularly when I don’t feel like crud. Have a wonderful Saturday and a blessed Palm Sunday, ya’ll. Holy Week is upon us!
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.
