Well they say spring is here, but after the snow we had a couple of days ago and now yucky cold and raining I sure want to know where it is or when it will get here!! I am hoping soon since I will finally be on spring break starting later this week!!
Sorry I haven't posted in over 3 weeks, it has been hectic here and just plain ole lack of motivation didn't help!! Now I did take a fab and fun spinning class for 3 days, as I posted in my last post, on the 5th, 6th, and 7th and had lots of fun and I posted LOTS of pics on my flickr!! We all had a great time and we all learned a lot! I also signed up for a class in Oct with Jacey Boggs and I can hardly wait for that now!! So lots going on there! in my little fiber world!! I will also be doing a demo of me spinning my art yarns as I know how to do them out in Chardon, OH ,at Knitting On The Square , on the 8th of April! So any of you that are near there and want to join me you can bring your wheels and I will have lots of fiber for sale, goodies to add in, as well as new yarns etc!!! I hope to have some fun!!
We also did a family dinner in honor of my FIL ,that our son had Jurgen set up, out at the Gatherings in Lakewood! The chefs were amazing and the food was absolutely fabulous!! We all had to pitch in and make something and then the chefs served up everything afterwards! It was a wonderful way to honor dad and all his times of cooking for us and making all the fun meals he did!! Pics on flickr as well for you to see!!
So nothing else new right now, but an etsy shop update will be in the works for Sun the 4th of April, so come to check that out and I will post pics hopefully, if the weather cooperates, of the garden as I get it ready for SPRING!!! I hope to plant some lettuces and radishes now and then get the rest of my beds ready and hubby wants to do 2 new ones for me (or should I say, I WANT HIM to make me 2 new ones), since he wants the one we have by our deck to be all flowers! So since we have to move that veggie bed I want an extra one right away so we have a bit more growing space to work with!!!!! Planning on lots of cukes, tomatoes, peppers, squash, and whatever else I can find!! Now for a summer like last year where not hot and humid would be ideal!! hehehe! Yes I know chances of that are slim to none more than likely but nice to have some wishful thinking!
Well that's it for now will post a few pics of the spinning class and our dinner! More soon!! Can't wait for my break to start and new stuff to do! Oh yes new fleeces on the way and will be posting new locks as soon as they are washed and dyed!! so be on the look out! Wensleydale, Teestwater and some more Leicester Longwool! have a great week all! Hope we get some nice sunshine this week!!
