What Happened to January?

It was a dark and stormy night…..and day….and night.  Living in Southern Arizona, I should NEVER complain about rain.  We need it badly, it’s much better than snow and it will make for the most beautiful wildflowers this spring.   BUT, it can stop.  Anytime.

On more important things, I am slowly getting my tapestry weaving started.  I realized that I needed more yarn to be spun.  This is some mystery roving I bought at a weaving clearance sale.  I think it is merino.  I blended it on my drum carder.  It will get spun soon.IMG_2336I made straps on the inkle loom for a Western themed tote bag as a gift to a friend who has a ranch.  She has house concerts in her barn that we really enjoy.IMG_2340 IMG_2345  A couple more project bags were made and given to fellow “Yarn Babes”.IMG_3386IMG_3387My sister, Kay, received another “Bottle Sweater” for her hand sanitizer.  I even got the “sleeves” to match.  I used some left-over sock yarn.IMG_3375 IMG_3383Duffy is waiting to play “Wubba”.

See ya,
