Great seats!

Got free tickets to an Indians game ... these seats are better than the ones we paid for a few months ago!

My PVC niddy noddy

Originally uploaded by mzundercover
Some of you wanted to see the PVC niddy noddy that my fella made for me a few weeks ago. Here she is! She works really great for me. She's made from 1 18" piece of pipe, 4 6" pieces, 2 "T" connectors and 4 end caps. Right now "Nita" (that's her name) is holding some bright pink wool that I spun. There is more of that fiber to spin up but I needed the spindle to spin up some fiber that will become a scarf for my fella's mom (either birthday or Christmas gift).

Hopefully one of these days (soon!) I will have the money saved up to put my dream spinning wheel on layaway. Until then, Liesl (my Louet spindle ... maybe I should give her a Dutch name rather than a German one?) is worth her weight in gold!

Back to the studio to make some more goodies for my brand new etsy shop. Check it out, and tell me what you think!

Announcing ...

... my new etsy shop!  It's still *very* new (there's only one item currently for sale!) but stay tuned for more goodies to be posted soon.  Also, check us out on Facebook.  I plan to spend lots of time in my studio this weekend, making pretty stuff!  I am also hoping to experiment with dyeing yarn using the Kool Aid method ... Can't wait to see how that turns out!

Meantime, this will have to be a short post.  Gotta focus on my "day job" ... maybe the more I focus, the quicker the day will go and the sooner I can be home experimenting in the studio!

Ciao for now, amigos :-)


... this has been a QuietStorm production, dahling ...
