SPINNING:
I’m spinning again! I don’t know why I ever stopped! My lovely wheel is a Majacraft Little Gem 2.
Currently spinning Tempted Handpainted Cheviot in Persuasion.
I’m thinking of plying it with a Tempted Jacob braid called Coal in Your Stocking (club shipment)

I’m also going to spin my bin! (Fabulous Michaels bin too!) This is a spin along in the Completely Twisted and Arbitrary group.
I pulled out my giant bin of fibre and picked a few things out. I’m also going to use it or lose it!

  1. Tempted Hand Painted Cheviot in ‘Persuasion’ – 2.6oz (that’s the unruly, unbraided red stuff in the photos. I have some on a bobbin, but 2.6oz left still to spin)

Giveaway-a-day!
The little photo app I’m using to record my giveaway-a-day journey is Project 365 Pro. I created an account and set it to automatically upload, so it creates this page for me to share with you!
This week I found yet MORE wedding magazines, craziness. I’ve also edited a few more pieces out of my closet. I feel like now I’m starting the challenging part of it, I’ve gotten rid of all the stashes of obvious things, now I have to really consider if I need something.
