Over the last year(s), when I've been unable to finish a color on a bobbin- I've added it to a 'strays' bobbin.Well, today I decided to ply that on itself. I only have one more color way from my big order from Barry last year so I'd decided that one wouldn't be added to the … Continue reading Plying project
I'm down to my last three batts of roving- and I'm at 98 (ish) hours of spinning and 19 (ish) hours of plying. My phone died so I lost my hour tracking data. My last 3 batts I'm going to try to do them on my new Louett wheel. Wish me luck!
I ended up with the task of getting Susie's house empty. The developer that one of the heirs had offer came in 200k under market. I've had to clean and paint the house. It goes on the market next Wednesday. I'm getting another resident- short term I'm told. I'm looking to buy a house so … Continue reading I haven’t posted because…

Susie died a little over a week ago. Usually I'm done with my role after the body is picked up, … Continue reading Updates and funerals

JoAnne of Bridle Valley … Continue reading Spinning update
Before I started taking care of the developmentally disabled, I was a hospice nurse. One of my resident's (S) has an aunty who was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer- and it's spreading. Fast now. So, naturally as Aunty was diagnosed I've been more and more involved in her care. She has no children, no … Continue reading Moments of waiting
51 hours of spinning 10 hours of plying Still working on the pink.
There is a chance that winter has finally arrived in Colorado. Maybe is has something to do with the fact that I watered the garden yesterday- starting to build soil moisture so the little microbes would wake up (assuming it stayed warm). Kendall loves the snow, and is tolerant of me putting doggy clothes and … Continue reading Winter in Colorado
