No blue, just green and yellow. The one on the left is my favorite, too. Its the one that started the quilt design.

I dont think it has to be plyed but Im pretty new at this. Im plying mine because my singles have lots of twist and are very fine. Apparently, the more twist you add to your spun silk, the shinier is will be. Beck When I stop learning, Id better be dead.

Hi, Lucie! I havent really had time to think about it. Between my vacation and the bathroom redo, I havent had much time for anything else. Once I start thinking about it, Im sure Ill get excited. Tell every one I said hi. When I stop learning, Id better be dead.

Its Merino/bamboo. I cant wait to see the finished yarn, too. If I keep going at the same rate, I should be done spinning in a couple days. Then a couple days of plying. Hmm, I may not get the Finn spun in time for Maryland. We shall see. Snorgle the babies for me! Beck When I stop learning, Id better be dead.

Far as I know, theyre built the same as every other sheep. There are a lot of Finn bottle babies. When I stop learning, Id better be dead.

The rain came down in buckets and the thunder was continuous. I havent seen a storm that big in a while. Now I just need to clean the litterbox sludge out of the basement. The reall annoying thing is Id planned on cleaning the basement tonight or tomorrow. Now, not only do I have to wait until the floor drives, but I have to clean up the litterbox sludge that before I would have just vacuumed. Grr. Beck When I stop learning, Id better be dead.
Our temps in the mid 70s is about 3 months ahead of schedule. Its been so warm here, if we get a freeze, its going to wreak havoc with the flowers and the trees. It could kill the fruit crop. The tornado in Dexter was only a street away from my girlfriends house. They lost a few shingles and some of the siding on their house is loose but thats about it. The neighbor across the street lost his garage completely. Becky When I stop learning, Id better be dead.
When you charge your phone, Ill post again. Its all on you, baby! When I stop learning, Id better be dead.

I'm working on the decluttering myself and I have a date with my sister (who lives two states away) for the end of March to do a Clean Sweep on my condo. I have crap everywhere and it's a source of stress for me to come home and see everything laying around. I can't wait for the end of March. My treat to myself when we're done is a trip to IKEA for bookcases and storage boxes.

I keep making quilts and I literally have no place to put them. Im sure theres some kind of sickness in there somewhere, but I cant not make things. Being creative and the kittens are just about my only joys in life. I may have to put a quilt storage chest in the trunk of my car. Happy creating! Becky When I stop learning, Id better be dead.

Pretty and soft: what a wonderful combination. I think I'm going to have to knit a pair for myself. About what weight was your yarn?

Much as I dislike Michigan winters, they make the return of spring that much more spectacular. Becky When I stop learning, Id better be dead.

Hi, Elizabeth! The tail is unusual for her. She usually sleeps with her nose tucked under a crooked paw. She so damned cute when she does that I have to restrain myself from going over and kissing the heck out of her. I really love cats. Becky "When I stop learning, I'd better be dead."

Yup, she's my girl. We had a vet appt. Saturday and he said she's in great shape for 18. She celebrated with a nap. Becky "When I stop learning, I'd better be dead."

No more blog?! Darn! I like reading your blog! Why did you give it up? Becky "When I stop learning, I'd better be dead."

Hi, Gayle! Three gallons!? Wow! What did you make with them? I haven't picked elderberries in a long time. Of course, I don't live in the country anymore. Becky "When I stop learning, I'd better be dead."

I've been wanting to start weaving for a while now but like you, I really don't need a new hobby. I've held it at bay so far but seeing other people's weaving is hard on my resolve. :-)

Thanks, Val. Shopping for fabric at quilt stores is a lot of fun. They have such beautiful designs. My favorite is the blue batik. Becky "When I stop learning, I'd better be dead."

I'll look into it but I think copyright only applies to written things: music, fiction, non-fiction. It's a good idea, though. Becky "When I stop learning, I'd better be dead."

Hi, Val, It'll take a few days for it to darken a bit - it's kind of orange when you first wash the henna off - and then find someone to wield the camera... should be able to get a pic on Friday. Becky "When I stop learning, I'd better be dead."
