I had such big plans for this years Tour de
France Fleece. I was going to dust off my bicycle spinning wheel and dedicate myself to getting in shape turning all that wool from my sheep
into lovely yarn.
But then June happened with it's sorrows and delights and my heart was focused on relations and emotions and the page turned to July before I even thought about getting that dusting rag out.
As it should be.
So I am a week late for the tour.
|Spinning in motion|
But working hard today and catching up nicely.
Just as soon as I get another three hundred yards of Carnie in skeins, I will hopefully be carding more of Mac on the Paul Brittan drum carder I picked up From the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.
My plan for the TdeF was to spin this roving along with some mohair I won in last year's tour.
We will see.
Not quite sure if that's the best course.
One secret project is ever so slowly coming along.
The other is hibernating so well that I am not even sure where it is.
My indigo plants are doing well. Doubled in size already. Big bunches of leaves should be ready to harvest in the fall. You good people will have to remind me to save time to play with dying what with this happy event going on and all.
I hope you have a fun and productive day as well
Happy Friday to all.
