Yes !! Finally with Dave's help i got this comment situation straightened out. Thank you Dave !!!
So, comment anytime about anything :)
Otherwise not much new around here. I finally finished the order of black socks going to Germany. I know they will be appreciated once winter rolls around there.
It's been some what cooler here this last week ( only in the upper eighty's , lower ninety's), which one of my friends in Germany just thought funny that i would describe those temps as "cooler". But if one has endured months of 100+ degrees it feels cool .As a matter of fact it has been down right beautiful the last three days. Upper 50's in the morning, cool enough for a long sleeve shirt, haven't worn one of those since end of April.
On another subject: i acquired some beautiful chop sticks on e-bay a couple of days ago .
I've got very special plans for them.
i will post on the finished project at a later date.
Here on the home front the Goats are finally getting along much better.
Lulubelle still sometimes gets a good lick in to Clyde but at least now she doesn't actively chase him any more.
Also, here is a new pic of Tom , Bib's kitten.
He has grown tremendously ( bigger than Bib now) and speculating on the size of his feet he will be a huge cat.They are twice the size of his mama's .
After no less than 11 tries to take a picture of his face i got this.
At least one can see his face on this one , the other eleven are either of his butt, back, side or top, no face.I don't know how Dave takes all these beautiful pictures of his cats. they are very well behaved. Tom is just camera shy. i even tried to hold his head while taking a picture and all i got was the back of it since he twisted it around just at the moment the camera went of.I love the little white moustache , he looks like one of those " Got Milk ?" ads.
This afternoon i will try to hook my sewing machine to my carder in a try to motorize it. I have probably about 150 pounds of fleece accumulated . I need to get to processing it but i really don't want to crank that carder handle by hand.If successful, post on that will follow.
I also will post on my new addiction ( and boy, am i hooked and just after one try!!) sometime next week when i have some pics to go with it.Thank goodness it's not illegal :), and No,it's not fiber related at all :O
Im another one of those middle aged women who has seen it (or almost)all.
Originally from Germany i came to this beautiful country 35 years ago.
I have two children and three grandchildren, two boys and a girl..(Yickes! I'm really getting OLD!)
I am also a 8 year breast cancer survivor.
During my treatment for this nightmare disease i started knitting again after several years break.Since then i also started spinning, preparing my own raw fibers(dyeing, carding),and my newest addiction:weaving.
I opened up my etsy store in 2006 .
