Stash Report – Week 45, 2017

Nothing in and Nothing Out. Last Sunday I went to a Weaving and Fiber Festival in Torrance, CA.  I loved all the colors and fiber.  But I didn’t spend any money other than my admissions fee.  Which is very strange indeed.  I’d like to say that I’m learning to control my impulses and buy things for projects when I’m ready to start working on a project.  But that would not be true.  Really I have a ton of yarn and like my fabric space do not have room for more. I would have found space for the fiber though but I do not know how to spin on my drop spindle.  I’ve watched a ton of YouTube videos and I’m just not getting it.  I think this is something I need to take a class and learn.  I would also love to get a spinning wheel and start playing with that.  But I’m afraid to get into another hobby or have another project.  So, I’m leaving that alone and will happily watch the spinners and yarny folks on YouTube.  I did find some sort of collective that does semi annual workshops or retreats and teaches this sort of thing.  The fall one was this weekend and I was not able to attend.  But I will try to attend the spring  event.  Maybe I’ll discover that I truly enjoy spinning and maybe I’ll be able to rent one a bit before forking out the cash.

Slow Stitching Sunday

I was not able to work  on my Sunday Project, A Rainbow Garden last Sunday and I will probably not work on it today either!  I’ve got a number of projects I need to get done for Christmas so I’m working on those first.  The plan is to get it done by the end of this month so that all my crafty projects in December are fun projects for me.  Unfortunately, this project has to be put aside until I get to it.
