We had a new instructor today. Her name is Wendy. She is a hardcore spinner and weaver. Ah yes, the exact person I want to absorb everything I can from! She pulled out the spinning wheel this afternoon. Love at first sight, let me tell you!
We did Fibre Science today. How to identify various fibres, their feel, what they’re used for, what they may be blended with and why. She had us set up a sample book. I thought that was genius! That will be so handy to reference when the time comes. So we did that for most of the day.
Tomorrow is going to be spinning and weaving. I am SO EXCITED!!!! I just knew I was going to fall in love with felting. I was right. I have the same feeling about spinning and weaving. I KNOW I’m going to love it! I was joking around with one my classmates today, saying about how all of the stuff that I was really pumped about has come up within the first week. So what are we going to do for the rest of the course? Lol
As for the weekend, it was pretty amazing. I probably should have stayed in and kept things low key. But what fun is that? Sleep deprivation all the way! Little man and I joined the bestie and her man at the sculpture forest in Haliburton. It was a beautiful day. Little man had a blast running around and climbing all over the sculptures. One was a rocket ship according to him.
Yesterday Mom took little man and I to see my bro and his ladies. It was a really nice day. On our way home, little man needed to use the potty. So we went into Tim Horton’s. There were 3 police officers sitting in there having coffee. Mom wanted to take little man over to introduce him to them in case they knew my brother (who is also an officer). I love the look of pride she gets on her face when she talks about my brother and little man 🙂
So is it tomorrow yet?
