Look At The Pretty Wool Roving!


I got some mail yesterday!!

Isn't that some pretty wool? I'm going to try my hand at felting around some soaps. Since I apparently need help learning to spin, but I still wanted some of this Spunky Eclectic Wool from Amy! My picture does not show how great these colors are. You should go to her site and see them. Pretty stuff! I really want more. It's so yummy!

Here are some more pictures of my walls. This weekend all the stuff is going back where it belongs! I will be so glad to be able to use the dining room table, and to be able to move through the middle of the room without something in the way!


When the mirrors (thanks Cindy!) and my kids' school pictures are back up, I'll feel so much better. I only like having dinner (supper or whatever you call your evening meal) at the dining room table. We can finally do that again! Clutter be damned! If we hadn't gone out of town last weekend, it would have been done long ago. I'm just really glad it was taken care of before Thanksgiving. We won't be here for the celebration, but that was my goal.

I've been knitting on the blanket. I can't remember if I posted this; but it's a girl! Yay, so if the blanket turns out girly, it's ok!! I have a couple of Christmas gifts that I'll show off later. You know, after Christmas.

Ooh, and in less than two weeks I get to teach knitting to some 3rd-6th graders. I've been doing that a couple times a year for like four years(?) Before doing the knitting, I was teaching friendship bracelet making. Remember the bracelets made out of knots of embroidery floss? It's only for four weeks at a time, unfortunately. I keep thinking about starting a knitting club at the school, but I am busy enough. I don't want to start something if I can't keep up with it.

Well, I guess I've rambled on enough. Real life is calling. I keep looking over at my knitting. I probably have some time to do a little before the housework. hehe. I'll make time, anyway!

Have a great weekend!!!!

I may have to try felting around a bar of soap. Looks like fun. Thanks for the link.

That is the most artsy living room I have ever soon. Good for you guys! Will you help me with a color for my living room?

Oh, Amy's stuff is just gorgeous! My spinning sucks (granted, I haven't given it much time and effort yet), but her rovings are so pretty I just have to squeeze them sometimes! (I'm going to have to get some uglier rovings to practice on - I hate the thought of messing those up so badly!)

The dining room looks great! It's all sunshiney and happy!

What is felting around a bar of soap?

I know how happy you'll be to get your house back in order--we're going to paint soon, too, so I'm trying to get in coping mode.

I saw some felted soap recently and thought it looked like a perfect gift to give and recieve. That roving is going to make some mighty pretty felted soaps.
