And Another Thing....

So I'm still running out of daylight every day. Don't know how to make the days last longer.
This post will be lots of pictures. Again it's been too long between posts so there will be no apparent theme....
Oh, but did you all see this? I'm pretty excited about it:-)
Can't do anything about it but lookee what came in the mail yesterday. That there is 3 chocolate bars and a hand spun, hand knit scarf from my friend Elsiedeluxe. It is a beautiful scarf. Warm and lovely. The chocolate all had to be tasted. So I did that today. Pear with dark chocolate, Orange with dark chocolate and really really dark chocolate. All delicious. I didn't bring them home with me because I am on yet another weight loss program. This time I will lose the weight and I will learn how to keep it off. Determination. But the chocolate will be tasted periodically.
I got some new Polwarth top in a beigey whitish color and moorit. love. Also some new sparkley stuff there on the floor for the blending.
The Tsock Tsarina made me this little cutie from leftovers of her first handspun. She sits on my desk though she does like to hop off once in a while.
And a scarf that I think is beautiful. Woven with Louet Gems Merino yarn in a log cabin design. There's a class coming up at the shop for this design. It will cover lots of basic weaving techniques and at the end of two days you get to take home this beauteous scarf!
Oh and Briar Rose BFL is here. This is a crap picture of it but there are better ones in the webstore. I am so impressed with Chris Roosien's dyeing abilities. The stuff spins beautifully and you get those Briar Rose colors Chris has become famous for.
We took a quick trip to Pennsylvania to see my parents and Grnadmother last week. As usually my parents' house looks fantastic. This is the suspended tree in the stairwell.My mom has a handmade Santa collection and this is one of my favorites.
Of course there were the little hams. I have aobut 20 picturesof them posing in front of all the trees.
Before the trip there was that Abby class and as usual there was trashing of the shop. It was a huge mess that I was in no state to deal with right away. But the classes were great as always. I learned some new things aobut blends and had a load of fun with all the participants and the sleepover was CROWDED! But so fun.



Those are just soem cute things I have in the shop right now and I am having a hard time not taking them all home with me.
I gotta go to bed and I will do my best to get back on a more regular blogging schedule. Promise.
