I wonder if any of you remember the gorgeous silk/tencil fiber that Sandy had dyed. There was just enough to make this richly colored skein and tada....

.... an experiment that evolved into a fire spitting snake "Boa-Belt". Using ribbon for the core of the (straw) woven belt and later adding knitted bands and strings. The actual colors are correct above but not near as dark as they appear below.

Now it's time for you to "strut your stuff".

Enquiring minds want to know and SEE

You are all in trouble now...

Thanks to Carolyn who remembered my Blogger name and password I'll now be able to post.

Just to bring you up to date, Carolyn and I had a great day in Jax (Jacksonville FL. for you guys out west). You can guess the topic of conversation. We worked hard at inspiring each other and succeeded with several knitty/spinny ideas but it was agreed that she wouldn't infect my mind with "weaving" and I'd return the favor concerning "sewing, as in machine".

I will try to get some pictures up before we (hubby Bill and I) leave for Arizona on Saturday to see daughter in Mesa and son in Bullhead City. On the trip back we'll visit friends and family all the way to Kentucky. Must get home by the end of October......so much fun stuff happening this fall. We'd love to run into some of you enroute .....let me know where you are/will be.

OK now to see what pic's I can find.

Hugs to all, and just so you know.........my time at the Red Rooster rated as one of the highlights of the year....decade....OK lifetime.

It's not fiber......



Since none of you have posted in a while, I feel honor-bound to write something. I got myself into a new hobby. I didn't mean to and I didn't really want to but there it is.
It started like this: baby pictures and the need to put them into somethning I could carry around and force people to look at. I'm a Granny, it's my job. So I got myself a book (archival quality) and some glue and some cutesy baby stickers and voila! I now scrapbook. (digging toe into sand, head hanging down) See, my problem is that when I start something new ( and most all of you saw me start to spin) I go hog-wild and pig-crazy. How'd ya llike that Tennessee talk? So. I now feel obligated to buy everything I will need to be a successful scrapbooker. Even if I don't know what it is I need. I am such a sad case. Or, my bad, whichever fits. I could be spending my money (such as it is) on fiber goodies, but they are my Quad Squad and I love to look at their pics. I'm a Granny, it's my job. And speaking of the Squad, they are doing great. Reagan has slept all night 3 times. They are all growing and now they are 3 months old. Zachary and Reagan still cry a lot and no one seems to know why. Maybe when they are a month older and start to get a little solid foood it will help . So now that I have told y'all what I have been doing, it's time for someone else to do so.
Is anyone going to SAFF along with Caroline and Bill and Paul and I? Lets do it!

I'm Back!!!

Hi everyone! I am back from a most perfect trip. In fact, so perfect, Pam wants me to pass along my itinerary. I have never hit so many yarn and fiber places in one trip as I did on this trip. I am journalling my adventures on my regular blog, if you care to see. (There is also a link to a picture of one of our own group having a good time at another retreat - not me, by the way).

Twisted Friends

Vacations always count. I love the quilt. I also love the typo. It fits really well in my world. Still slogging through the shawl. I will "git 'er dun"! Send me your blog addy again. Since I lost my addy book on AOL (ya gotta love them) I don't have a single addy left that I can find. Well, duh, I guess you would like to know it's Kandy I am talking to about the blog(blob)addy.

Angi, puppies are just MEANT to ruin whatever is near and dear to your heart. They are precious, but oh the aggravation. You do beautiful work and whoever gets it will surely love it no matter what it is or when you started it. How do you get into these exchanges anyhow?
