What I got accomplished today

Well I am glad that I got more accomplished today than I thought I would or had planned to. I still have oodles that are really on my to do list though that I have not done, :P. However I did get this done...

I sewed binding to the charity quilt that I am like way behind on, will get it sewn down by tomorrow afternoon and mailed this week. Which is good. Will post pic when done.

I sewed binding onto a wall hanging that I have had AROUND FOR YEARS. I found it while reorganizing and playing etc. I plan on hanging it in the bathroom for it will create a theme and I have fabric for a curtain picked out already, also had it around or a good bit. I will post a pic and more on that when I hang it up.

I did laundry...yes yes FUN!

I bought tickets for the movie tomorrow night.

I got three more plastic bins of fabric reorganized and to be taken downstairs for keeping. That makes 9 so far and I need to purchase two more and I have three sitting in the floor in the dining room still.

Yes..while reorganizing, I picked fabric for a new project (sigh). It is going to be a New York Beauty, and I am using some perfect pastels by Robyn Pandolf. They are many years old now. So although a new project started, will be all fabric from the stash! :D

...I think that is all the major stuff. OH AND I BLOGGED :P

Drop Spindle Class

I had a drop spindle class last month and made my very own yarn from wool roving. At the moment it is hanging over my sink in my was drying and I have yet to move it anywhere else. It actually looks nice there. :) I enjoyed it and am glad I took the class, I do not think I really could have got a handle on it on my own. I have not however done anything else with it since. I have a bit of wool roving left over, but I want to use it to felt over some handmade soap and try that out. So I need to get more roving, but I am trying to no overload myself with buying all this new stuff that may sit there forever, like so many things right. :) I have found in the last few weeks that there has been a lot on my mind and work has been seriously stressful and physically tiring. I have been left with little energy when I am home to even muster the strength to do anything. Which is very sad, which is a hard spot to get out of. With all the thoughts lately of whether to go back to school o try and have kids, it is very frustrating. And eh it gets pretty deep with past issues of trying and what nots etc so I will not get into that, but to say the least I am as of late, just not sure what to do. And my husband saying what will happen will happen etc attitude is all good and well, I know he means well but you know when you have hard time conceiving, well that just dos not cut it, you have to give it some help! Anyway, enough on that! I will share my pictures of the first yarn I made!

It is a bit clumpy here and there, and that is all about drafting, which defiantly takes practice to get it to go the way you want it to every time. I do want to practice on that because I would like to make a overall thinner yarn. The pink bit of yarn is jut where I had it tied together when I was soaking it so it would not fall apart.

a bit of an update

Well I really have been out of it. I do have a good few many things as far as quilting, and the yarn I made in my drop spindle class and some paper I made to post, but I just have not. I will try to do that Monday morning when I get off work. I could use the holidays as an excuse but that really only took abotu 2 off my days. I have been moving a bit of furniture and unpacking a bit more but really I slept too much and watched way too much tv. SO bleh. I was really trying to be more productive but it seems after two days of that I got stuck in a bad mood and found that I was happier in the bed or watching a movie. I so dislike it when I get like that but once I am there, it is indeed so hard to get out. SO I do hope to get some pictures up of the things I have been doing. Plus I have many things I HAVE to finish, on a deadline, that I hope to get all those done.
