This week my daughter will have had three Cross Country Meets. Yikes! We have been all over the countryside (seriously, they run through parts of mowed hay fields) and I am finding that it's not the best environment to knit or use a drop spindle. You know what? It's totally worth it. I am loving the fact that I can be there to cheer on my darling children.
Now, never fear because I have found a bit of Fiber Arts time. I managed to clear off my Cricket that has been holding my spa cloths that I started back in May. The fabric is off and I have a bunch of squares that now need some loving care on the sewing machine. They don't look like much now but once I get them on the sewing machine (gasp!) they will take on a whole new look.
I managed to weave another 10 inches on my big loom. I need another five inches or so then I am going to take off the fabric I wove for an experiment. I need to change the reed to a smaller size before continuing. It's just a little too open for the remaining projects I want to make with the remaining warp.
Finally, I have been winding down at night with some lovely Polworth Wool dyed by Briar Rose that I bought a couple of years ago. It's been delicious to spin. I guess when you look at it, I did manage to get a lot done. How about you? Share your adventures in Fibers Arts!
