Oh happy day!!!!! I just have to call Wendy to arrange a pick up time for my brand new spinning wheel!!!!
It’s funny how the timing worked out! I know if I had got it any sooner, this course would have been harder to get through. I know where my focus would be! So on Monday, December 19 when I’m looking around because I’m lost from not being in class, guess what?!
It may not get action then either though. My little man has been waiting a very long time for a “Goober and Mama Day.” Most mornings when he gets up has asks me if it’s going to be a “Goober and Mama Day.” All that consists of is us spending time together. He doesn’t care if we go out anywhere. Most of the time he would rather stay at home. He’ll snuggle me for a little while. Then he’ll play with his cars while I work away, perfectly content just knowing that I’m there. I know there may come a day when he doesn’t want to hang out with me (unless he’s like my brother who still enjoys his days with is Mama too 🙂 ). So I’m enjoying every second of this 🙂
So I have some pencil roving ready to warm me up. It is easy to spin, but it’s good to get in the groove. I have a bunch of fleece ready for practice. There’s the one bag that I have that is purple wool top with silk. That’s going to be nice! I’ve got so many ideas! I think a drum carder may be in my future too.
On Wednesday, the Spinner’s and Weaver’s Guild is meeting a stone’s throw away from school. I’m going to pop over there on my lunch to meet everyone. I can’t wait! One of many positive things about going to school in your own backyard is that the contacts you make are the ones that you will be working with in your area. I’m really excited about meeting everyone!
Well, I’d best be on my merry little way for now. I plan on posting about my business card and the awesomeness that was the Portfolio and Marketing class at some point. I shouldn’t have even wrote this out because I’m SUPPOSED to be working on a paper for my innovations class. I’m stuck in the mud with the paper, so of course I’m going to procrastinate! With that said, unfortunately I’d better get at it. I’ve been waiting for it to write itself and it just isn’t.
