Okay so I haven't posted for two weeks. I am busy doing Day care for Shelby who thinks people shouldn't be allowed to sit for too long. I have sent out 30 some siggy blocks and am moving from knitting all the time to quilting and knitting with a little spinning. I really need to figure out how to do it all. I was much more organized when I worked.
Yesterday I walked about a mile to Shelby's school to pick her up and then we walked home. This is a really good distance for me but boy was I tired (also had a blister on my foot ).
Bill just phoned and he is going to pick me up so we can go get my car. He had the body work done and the car painted. Will post a photo when I get it home.

new addition

Yesterday I went to Fibrefest at the Tradex in Abbotsford. I had a great time. Bought a new top whorl spindle that is gorgeous, a shawl pattern that is gorgeous and some fibre which is guessed it .. Gorgeous. Met lots of friends and did some spinning but them I phoned DH (in future referred to as the Enabler) about this Louet S 45 spinning wheel.
I had been looking for FOLDING WHEEL that didn't take too much room and was easy to transport but ...................................... I really loved this wheel and the Enabler said "Get it". Hannelore made me a Deal I couldn't refuse, Bless her. So here are photos of my new LITTLE wheel that is not very heavy, very portable and will sit on the shelf when not in use.

Please note the yellow guard lizard (plastic) on my new wheel is called "Anuil Likit" It is a Mother's day present from DGD Shelby.
I told my family the only thing I wanted for Mother's Day was the stuffed green Dragon from Ikea. Shelby said" NO you are getting a yellow lizard with black spots" As she ran out the door giggling she shouted " AND YOU WILL LIKE IT " Thus the name for the lizard is' Anuil Likit'.

p.s. I also bought 1 ball of sock yarn. LIFE IS GOOD

Well can you believe it. Two posts in one day. I just had to tell someone about my purchase today.
I was in the second hand store and found 28 yards of 36" wide silk for $25.00. Then DH went back and got the 28 yards of red and black for $30.00. Now I need to figure out what to make out of this lovely fabric.

Well it has been almost a month since I wrote anything here, but Life has been busy. Cory wanted help with pillow cases and cushions for her bedroom. Jill moved and needed help cleaning and unpacking. I went quilting one Saturday and spinnning last Saturday. DH STILL has my car as the truck still isn't fixed................... not that I want to go anywhere most days. It is just nice to know I can go if I want..................quirky right. Oh yes my friend Molly and I went to Ikea one day and then to the pub with my DD and her friends. I spent the night at Cory's but Molly went home. We are both invited to go again with them.
Time will tell although she is talking about having a girls night at her house..................
So after a lot of static from several friends I have added new photos. Shelby even modeled the pink scarf with a smile on her face. (Please take note Sharon and Gail) I finished 2 bookmarks and a shawl. The shawl was designed by Jeannie Townsend .

I still have about 10 knitting projects to finish and numerous quilting projects.....................we won't talk about the mess my craft room is in. I will have to break down and do the laundry. DH likes to have clothes to wear when he goes out.

Fibrefest at Abbotsford this Friday and Saturday................going both days if all goes well. Lots of fibre to feed my addictions.....yummy
