I got nuthin'

So this is going to be a little disjointed. I realize I have been slow in updating this little bloggy. Things have been very busy and Lou has been travelling a lot and well, I've been going to sleep at a semi normal hour so....now I have so much to post about that I can't even organize my thoughts and tomorrow morning at about 6AM I am going to hop in my car and drive to Columbus Ohio for the last two days of TNNA so I thought I'd better catch up here before I have even more to say and be excited about.

So I guess there will be mostly photos and some words.Amy of Spunky Eclectic fame is dyeing silk for me now. Both Tussah and hankies. I had big plans for adding all of these to the on line shop but then they started selling. I need to go back and see what's left and I will be putting in what I have left in the coming week.
I promise - These hankies are called Chocolate Covered Cherries. I love this one. There was also one called Flowering Kale. Beautiful but it's been bought and already spun.
Amy is a fantastic dyer and fiber girl. I have big plans for going to Maine to visit her in person sometime soon...like by 2010 for sure.
Here's what the Abby Batt shawl looked like on Wednesday. It wasn't going the way I had pictured in my head. I've cast on again. The colors will be in a different order and I'm hoping it will be better. The problem is that none of these fibers were ever meant to be together in one project - but I'm a rebel.
Here's a teeny tiny picture of my anniversary dinner last Tuesday night. Yummy. 3.5 pounds of lobstery goodness. I ate it all. Plus Creme Brulee.
Next I have some other things that are tempting me. I truly am thinking about hiding these in the closet. The one above is Finn. Love it. I need another one already.
CVM. Just look at that crimp. I'm looking forward to washing some of this and spinning it. The color looks good too. AND ! Teeswater. You know I'm a longwools kind of girl and this fleece does not disappoint. Long and shiny and pound sand pounds of combable loveliness.
K. Abby Batts came. Again. I had big plans for posting these and it didn't happen. I think I've already sold about half of what I got. Those up there are the Evergreen color.

I love them. These are sock batts and I have like 12 of them .

Anyway, I gotta figure out how this alarm thingy works and then get to sleep. I promise there will be TNNA details. I do. I promise. Yes, before the end of the week.

Oh, and remind me to tell you about the Summer Solstice Celebration coming up. Fun!

You are darn lucky that you didn't post any of those beautiful hankies that I saw last week and am still contemplating buying... even though we all know I'm not supposed to spend any more money this month. But seriously, how can I say no when so many of the things in your store want me to provide them a happy home?
