It Pays To Tidy Up

I was emptying out a basket yesterday evening, removing a couple of ziplock bags with fiber and bobbins in them, and found this little bag in the bottom of the basket. I can’t remember where the bag came from, if I bought it or it was a gift…been too long…but as soon as I sawContinue reading “It Pays To Tidy Up”

Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks

This photo is a reminder of what I can do when I put my mind, and hands, to it. All of my 4 ounce bobbins ready to ply. I really enjoyed that summer. I can do it again as long as I take care of myself and stay on top of things. Age really isContinue reading “Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks”

Spinning Hacks: Changing What You Do When What You Do Hurts!

I am a self-taught spinner since the mid 1980’s and after all those years of spinning I have terrific muscle memory and rarely stop to think about how I handle the fiber I’m spinning. That didn’t used to be a bad thing, but the older I get and the more my left shoulder bothers meContinue reading “Spinning Hacks: Changing What You Do When What You Do Hurts!”

Time To Slow Down

As you may have already figured out…I love to knit. But the lace patterned green socks took a lot out of me and with the change in weather factored in it’s time for me to slow down a bit and stick to something simple like the stocking stitch cowl. I’m using a 16″ size fourContinue reading “Time To Slow Down”

Rearranging. Again.

Now that my studio/workroom is de-cluttered I decided it was time to move the Kromski spinning wheel and the baskets of fiber and spinning wheel accessories out of the bedroom and back where they belong. I still have two wheels in the bedroom but they are more decorative these days. With this arrangement I canContinue reading “Rearranging. Again.”

More Storms and Our Search for Doggos

We had another round of storms last night about midnight. I really, really, really hope we are done for awhile. In any case, a cool front came through with that band of storms and it was 51┬░ this morning at 7:00 am. I let Brad sleep in and after he got up he went inContinue reading “More Storms and Our Search for Doggos”

Inclement Weather and Indoor Activities

It stormed off and on most of last night and kept us awake for quite awhile. Just about the time we’d drop back off to sleep we’d wake up to another clap of thunder loud enough to shake the house. It was a wild night to say the least and we had less than anContinue reading “Inclement Weather and Indoor Activities”

Hump Day is Here

Hump Day for most folks means the work week is half over. Even though I haven’t worked outside the home in decades I have to admit that Wednesday is a reminder that the weekend is on the way. As a spinner and fiber enthusiast it reminds me of some yummy fiber in my stash. Namely,Continue reading “Hump Day is Here”

Just When We Thought The Problem Was Fixed…

So. New battery in the F-150 and all is well. Except, it’s not. I go out to the garage last night to get something out of my SUV and notice that the dash lights on the pickup are on. Hmmm. It started right up this morning and Brad took it back in to the garage.Continue reading “Just When We Thought The Problem Was Fixed…”

A Blessed And Peaceful Sunday

Since neither of us is up to going to church yet we are enjoying a quiet day at home. Brad just checked the thermometer outside the living room window and at 11:00 am it’s 94┬░outside with very little breeze blowing. All in all it’s a good day to stay indoors and enjoy the A/C andContinue reading “A Blessed And Peaceful Sunday”
