What a fun afternoon

What a cool afternoon. Roggey came in to see the Fiber Underground space and we put together one shelf, one coat rack, watched my DH work on the walls, played with fiber, ate an awesome lunch at 2nd street ( HEY MUSH, THE LASAGNA IS GREAT TODAY ) and then came back to the space, did not put together the shoe and boot and coat rack, but I did become proficient at my drop spindle ( Big thank you Roggey )
Sent her home with a bunch of crack yarn and fiber.

Busy doesnt come close

Ok, so been busy helping friend get her pottery gallery and studio open. And now, it's time to hyper focus on the Fiber Underground.
Opening May 5th, I can't wait!

YAY, they go back to school

Who are all these kids and why are they calling me mom? Today, the last day of spring break, I actually had 3 hours where there were NO teenagers mulling about ( ok ok so they were dying yarn and fleece and making stitch markers and knitting needles and other stuff ... but still ) and DAMN , it was quiet!!!!!!!
So the countdown begins.. yes, that's right, the surprise is beginning to unwrap!
Any guesses????

The teenager makes use of her spring break

For those that don't know DitzyCadet is selling oodles of hand dyed yarn and rovings. A little background for those of you who haven't heard...she have been invited to participate in seminars and caucuses in Washington DC this summer, a program generally reserved for juniors and seniors, and she being a sophmore makes this honor all that more important.. She is selling yarn and rovings that are HERE to raise money for the tuition and airfare.
The yarns and rovings below are all hand dyed by her. Please EMAIL ME for availablility..She takes paypal, checks and money orders.
