Well, I slacked pretty bad online this week. Ops!
I recently joined a place that holds groups and meetings. They do crafts, excersize, dinners, movies, games etc. Each day there is about 5 different events at all times of the day. I went on tuesday to the 10am tea to meet everyone and then stayed for the 1pm crafts. I met alot of lovely ladies ( I am the youngest member all other members are 40 or over ) and knitted with them. I went to the 7pm quilting last night and met and chatted with a crazy bunch of elderly ladies. Oh what fun it was! I took the wedding quilt for mecca to start quilting it and got about a block finished while I was there. Of course I was running late and looked like a crazy person ironing everything and pinning it and running late.
They are very friendly there and even gave me one of the donation looms. I am leaving it there and a 88 year old woman is going to teach me how to use it on craft tuesdays until I understand it all and then I will be taking it home. Shes a frisky lady who has been with the place in 85 and gave me homework of reading 3 chapters of the ” weaving bible ” to read before I go back to crafts.
Ive also been knitting away at the kitty ear hat that sheepblue asked me to knit for her sisters birthday. I am just starting to decrease at the top.
Mark has been busy the last little while building me a spinning wheel in the garage, in which he completed this week! The first night he brought it in and taught me how to use it I plyed 87 yds of wool.
Things slowed down, so I can finally get back to my regular routine. ( and blogging haha )
Heres pics of the spinning wheel ( withg out the pedal as he was waiting for the hardware to reopen so he could reattach it )
