The Loom's ETA is ......

Hi y'all,
Boy has this been a busy time for me lately. I have to do another bunny butt cleaning and then tomorrow trim the area and that should take care of any future problems. I also have pictures of the flooding in local areas not far from where we live and it was mind boggling to see how the water has risen in these areas that we normally drive thru!! Look at these pictures.

Now I have to rearrange the furniture in the front room. I think I will move the rabbit into my fiber room/office and the sugar glider into the guest bedroom hmmmmmmmmm. Then this way I will have plenty of room for the Loom. I am so excited I think I will get 5/2 perle cotton from tracy and dye it a beautiful color to use first on the loom then graduate up to using the tencel. Anyway here it is the loom, I am just so jazzed, excited tickled every color of the rainbow over this new venture that I have been blessed with. I want to come up with at least 2 signature colors that only I have and a certain way to weave a design so that no one else can copy it and then that will be my unique mark! I have been getting ideas for color set ups by looking at pictures I've taken of flowers. Plus I have been working on some new batts that are unique in color as well.

Notice the draw in th bench I can keep the small things and shuttles & bobbins in there for now!

Well I have to run so y'all be good and try to stat dry if ya live in this here area.

She is now completely finished!!

Hi all,
Well today was a lazy day for us, we over slept and got up at 1:30 cause we talked till 2:30 Sunday morning. We ran an errand had lunch and then came home and I had a doozy of a migraine starting so I took some meds and laid down and got up at 8 p.m. Then I started to put the wheel together and let me tell you it was easy at first until it came to the upright and the darn bottom and I thought I was gonna have a fwe choice words. But alas, I got the power drill and asked for hubby's assistance and got it done. I call her Walela which is the Native American name for "Hummingbird". I hope the pictures come out nicely on here:

Well it is late and I need to get some sleep I have a busy day tomorrow and I need to have a clear head for thinking things through. So everyone have a great week and be blessed, and for those of us how Spin, spin happy and knit on!!


Crazy Times

The past month and a half has been the most craziest and stressful time ever so far this year. I hope I do not experience it again. I have not done any spinning in 48 days and I am so glad to be getting back to the fiber world. I stenciled my new wheel, it's a Adiandre wheel. The front side of the wheel is stenciled with hummingbirds and flowers. I will put the high gloss sealer on it after I come home from church . I had my hair cut an dyed and now a couple of weeks later my hair has fallen out. I was over processed and it will take about 2 to 4 months before I'll attempt a different color. This time I want a color that works with my complexion. So I will go to John Michael and let him find the right color for me. In the mean time I will have to deep condition my hair and let it grow out. I received serval fiber packages since I was away and will show picures in the next post. I did finish another project for a friend and I have knitted one gauntlet for myself. I seem to have a certain problem with the cable part for some strange reason. I will be spinning up some new fiber and also will be sending out some fiber to be processed as well. I have to sort through Tunis fleeces as well as the Lincoln Longwool fleeces. I think I will sell some of the as well. Any how it is rather late 2:27 in the morning and I have class in the morning at 9 before morning service, so I best end for now. I must do much better with my blogging, I need to make at least on entry a week so as not to have such big gaps in my entries and also include more photos. Well everyone have a great Sunday and a awesome week.
