Right? Aha. Yeah. So I really have been doing things. In fact, lots. (Which is why I haven’t been blogging). Thing one: This is really what’s been taking up my time. I’m having company soon, and my house needs cleaning, … Continue reading

Whee. Yay for non-consistent blog updating. Or something. Anyway. Life is huge right now, and I’m sort of unmotivated (trust me, you’ve fared better than LJ, which has heard me whine pretty consistently lately). But I did stuff. I have: … Continue reading

More fiber? No, thanks.
I have accomplished much by spinning, plying, and washing my first handspun. It is lovely. However, this bit of accomplishment is dwarfed by the sheer amount of roving I have left over (which compared to some is not a lot, … Continue reading
Real fiber news!
So. I did much fiber stuff this weekend, although I had planned to do more. Yesterday was blissfully unproductive. I sort of sat around all day in my pajamas, and got nothing real accomplished. But Saturday? Saturday was quite productive. … Continue reading
