My nephew is home from Iraq! Yes! We are so happy that he is home safely. I'm sure he is even happier to be home!
R decided that I needed to learn how to spin, so she taught me the other night. She has some silk caps that she wanted me to try. They have a very long draw, so that made it so much easier to use than wool. However the silk sticks to everything! If your hands are rough - forget it! Luckily mine weren't too bad.
We decided it was time to clean out the fabric stash. Man oh man! What a mess! It looks like a fabric store exploded in my bedroom. Quite a bit of what we found belongs to R. Remind me never to take her to another fabric store.....ever.....again.....as long as she is alive! I found a kit for a quilted wall hanging that my sister gave to me while she was cleaning out her stash some time back. So, I've been working on that too. I've really enjoyed working on it!
Oh, R got her first notice that she might be called for jury duty. Poor kid! She's 22, so technically she's not a kid, but she's still my kid and entirely too young to have to go! I don't think the county court system agrees with me though. We'll just have to pray that her number won't come up.
Well, that's about all the news that's fit to print at the minute. When I'm finished piecing the wall hanging I'll share a picture. Meanwhile I have to find something else to knit! Gotta keep busy!
