Chatty Month!

Well I have been chatty this month, I am amazed how much I enjoy talking here. I put up a link showing who follows my blog and a place to subscribe. I have 1 loyal follower, thank you, but it is looking alittle empty so if you are so inclined to, please subscribe so it doesn't look so empty!

I have been trying to keep busy this month, but I really feel yucky physically it's hard. Isn't it interesting what your mind can do to your body? I know my only problem is knowing the 29th can't be avoided, and I still relive that day like it was yesterday. I still have so many questions I will never get answered. Not seeing the kids is getting harder too. I was in Sam's the other day and all the Christmas things are out and looking at the girly and little boy things is very hard, I will always remember how Jeffery and the kids loved Christmas. It was his birthday too, Lauren always was amazed how daddy had the same birthday as Jesus! :) I still have 4 more days so I really need to put this off as long as possible so back to fun stuff!

Yesterday was one of those days and didn't really get anything done, I want to start on some weaving and quilting, but I need to get ahead in some of my fiber prep so I have something to put on my Etsy store. So today I'm taking some pictures.
Here is something I am working on right now, it is a Rambo mix, blended with Silk. unusual colors you say! Yes, it's pretty don't you think?

I am hoping to have atleast 4 oz of this and then I will have some solid fuchsia to do with it. I blended it on my hackle, I just love that thing!

We have been talking on the new list about batts that look so pretty and bright and then when you spin them up they loose the distinction they had before. I have been trying to spin up a sample of everything I do so I know how it looks and post a pic of it. It is surprising sometimes!

I also need to get the dye pot out. I haven't gotten very experimental with that. I need to throw caution to the wind and go for it! Okay, you convinced me, that's what I need to do today! I think I try to do to many colors at a time, maybe just do several wools in several colors. It really isn't much trouble to get set up to do it.

So Hi Ho Hi Ho Off to dye I go! :))

LOVE your batt! Makes me itch to spin it. Alas, I have NO spinning time right now; maybe after I get my fleeces teased and off to the processor.
