weeelllll...still no blog pic posting, wassup? So read...

I promised pictures and I found the camera and now I can't download them to the site. I am seething at this point in time. Not sure what is happening in the technical field, as you know I am computer illiterate. ANyway, when the pic part works I will post them.

Now, I have silk thread from recycled saris that I got from ebay in abolutely gorgeous colors. I shall comb these into my roving and give them a spin. Please keep your fingers crossed for me while I attempt to conquer this task. I am definitely reaching beyond my comfort zone with this, but gotta live a little. I am feeling fairly confident, because I went to the Spinning Guild meeting today and had encouraging words about my wheel and spinning. Sooooooo, I shall implement the tips I was given on the Spawn of Satan and see if that makes a difference. I did find out that the previous owner of my wheel made quite a few changes with the tension and brake bands, bearings, treadle, etc. and that is part of why I was having difficulty. Of course, the other part was me :) But I have been shown what to change the bands to and given some drafting and tension tricks to use and think (key word...think) this will work. I have implemented them, but haven't bit the bullet and tried it yet.

See, I work for a living :) and it is getting in my way of fun right now. Like an idiot, I decided to open up my Nurse's Nutrition classes to all grades at my 2 schools. Stupid, stupid, stupid...not thinking this meant a different lesson plan and activity for each grade. Duh!!! Now I have 10 classes to teach tomorrow, dressed as a big banana!!!! What a hoot that will be. Next time I think all gung-ho just slap me. The good thing is career day in a few weeks. I will be talking about nursing, BUT ALSO have been asked to bring my wheel and demonstrate. Cool beans! I must say that the guild meeting was great and the ladies were wonderful and I am hoping they will have a sock workshop to teach me. Because I can't figure out my pattern. It is foreign and my sock kind of looks like something the cat would wear on it's head. Ick!

The guild meeting was in another town, that has some great stores, so of course I had to shop a few. I found this beautiful cake stand shaped like a heart (how sweet!) and it was on CLEARANCE!!! Magic words!!!!! Had to buy it. I couldn't just walk on by, could I? Could you walk by yarn. Nope, didn't think so. Anyway, I have it on the table, where I can admire for a few days. And just for the occasion of a new cake stand, I have an Obscene Chocolate Cake in the oven right now. In 48 more minutes I will be eating cake and drinking a cold glass of milk. Come on over!!!!!
WEll, I will go back to trying to fix the pic part. I think the wheel has rubbed off on it!!!!
