I would stop and look simply because your wall is so incredibly colorful!  Congrats on your new wheel!

One last picture of my "wall of colors" :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:


And my new wheel is a Schacht Spindle. Although it came with a brake on the bobbin, it can also be used as a double drive which is my favorite kind of wheel for easy tension adjustment! Si it is now a double drive and will make it's debut at this week's show.

Love the fish Sandi!
Sorry about the bees Larissa, it sounds like that wasp nest I had, it was paper and I waited til spring to go spray it, when I looked it was gone completely, no wasps, no nest, nothing! Maybe a rodent feasted all winter??

Our show was lots of fun. I took a flax wheel and demonstrated on that, it drew a lot of interest and Cliff sold a lot of wheel hooks. And I made enough to invest in a new (to me) wool wheel. Sheldon approves of it as you can see in the picture and it spins nicely although the bobbins are a little smaller than my louet! And just a teaser for Larissa is a picture of my dyeing!

Moving is simply endless...  Once everything is packed, you would think that the light is on at the end of the tunnel... just put it away.  NOT!  The address changes, the insurance, the bank accounts....  I am just brain dead and so tired of all of it.

So today, I got the fabric out and played.  There's this image in my brain.  I figured if I could get the fish out, the rest was doable.  Nothing is sewn in the first picture.  But the fish is cut out - at least the first draft of the fish.  I think the whole thing will come together nicely!

Yet again, our weekend didn't turn out *quite* as planned.  Most of it did - all of our gigs went really well, especially yesterday afternoon when we were face painting and balloon twisting at a "Taste of -" in a town near us.  What an amazing event, and the weather was perfect!

But we were also supposed to do our first bee cutout - there was allegedly a honey bee hive that had taken up residence in a hot tub in town.  We couldn't go Saturday morning as planned because of rain, so we went yesterday afternoon after the gig, only to find zero bees.  No hive, even.  We have no idea what the exterminator who told them there was a beehive was talking about.  So disappointing. 

Today is just work and then tonight spinning.  E may or may not be going to a wood turning meeting, depending on weather.  The topic isn't something he ever plans to do, so if it's still raining he'll stay home.

You.  Are.  Evil.

But I hope you have tons of success anyway!

Thanks Sandi and Larissa, we have a good location and for a first year show they've done a lot of advertisement, so keeping my fingers crossed. And my new rack is holding 6 large totes of roving and top! (I'll take a picture so Larissa can drool :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Have a great show!

Sandi,

Bunch of colors; I'll get photos.  And mostly, if not all, worsted (4).  I'll keep a bit for tying skeins, but don't see the point in keeping most of it, y'know?

 :laugh: save a little of your acrylic yarn- it's great for tying skeins with or making gifts that you know will be thrown in the washer :laugh:

The trailer and suburban are loaded, all that's left is to hook up and go to set up! With this morning's temp of 40 I'm happy we decided to drive back and forth instead of camping ;)
Have a great week-end everyone!
