Hey, Maybe I Should Have a Giveaway...
A Cat in a Box! Who doesn't want one of those?! Just say MEOW in the comments, and she's all yours! Add a few purrrrs, and you can have the cat doing the photo-bombing in the upper right hand corner.
Just kidding. Molly Cat not available. But since I am so lucky to be living close to the West Friendship Fairgrounds, site of the fabulous yearly Sheep and Wool Festival, I thought I'd share some of my happiness.
2 ounces of alpaca/wool/angelina, by Little Barn, inc.
(Clematis not included)
The recipient will be decided next Friday in a random drawing by a stranger I will accost on the street and ask to pull a piece of paper out of a jar. To enter this drawing, leave a comment in which you name your favorite color of Crayola Crayon ...and write it in all caps with an exclamation point: CERULEAN! for example. That way I won't inadvertently draw the name of a non-spinner for the giveaway. So, get out that crayon box and choose a crayon!
Here's what I've been working on:
Er, let me try this without Edgar Cat in the picture.
THERE. I'm going to do a 2-ply of each color.
These are my favorite Zebisis spindles. I adore them. They are just the right weight for just about everything.
Anyway ... here's what else I've been doing. Harvesting a ridiculous amount of chamomile. Everything in my herb garden survived the winter. So now it's barely into May, and I have enough herbs to last a few years. I've snipped off the flowers and I'm going to dry them for tea. I love chamomile tea ... so relaxing! It's like a sedative.
So that was my week! I have another 5.3k tomorrow (Friday) ... this one is sponsored by my workplace, and electronic devices are not allowed where I work, so there will be no pictures to share.
****update from work: I ran the 3.3 miles in 40:58. About a 12:24 pace. Now I'm ready to come home and drink wine and relax!****
I won't be blogging that one, but my friend has just written part two of her 1/2 Marathon adventure from this past St. Patrick's Day Rock-n-Roll 1/2 Marathon. So if you're interested, stop by and take a look!
Happy Fiber Arts Friday, all! Don't forget to stop by Andrea's!
