I have recently returned to my Ashford Country Spinner 2 wheel and decided to spin some rather fine singles on it. I know that “they” say you can’t do that but I decided “they” were wrong. Read more to find out what happened…
I just signed up to take a new course. Journey for the Golden Fleece Fiber Creativity Certificate. I haven’t done any recent schooling as with the move and all been way to busy. This course will take about 10 months to finish and will be focused on Fiber and Weaving and everything fuzzy and fun.
I will get a cool new loom designed by Majacraft specially for this course and a neat coloring book as well as the 8 different Modules.
I am excited as I haven’t done anything like this for a while. I am also worried that it might be one to many To Do things, but at least it will be an enjoyable To Do thing.
We get our first module on November 15th and will have 6 weeks to complete each module. It will involve spinning and weaving and probably other fiber art things as well as reflection and thinking. Are you going to expand your creativity and take this course?
Alba Ranch has moved to Michigan. This has been a very long and tiring journey over the last 4 months. We are in Michigan and unpacking. We will most likely be unpacking for the next 6 months or more!!!
I, Melisa, am just back online tonight for the first time and the connection is slower than my usual as I am tethered to my cell phone. Soon I will have my proper internet installed but first I was hoping for my hot water heater and maybe my washing machine. I have been boiling water in the kettle for hot water and going to the local laundry mat. However that will not be happening again as someone stole my laundry from the dryer tonight. I now have lost my blankets!! I think all the other blankets are in the semi that we plan on unpacking in July. sigh…. so you have to bear with me as I try to get all these things done and not forget my name or my new address in the mean time.
We have springs, a stream and pond. 20 Acres of woods…sugar maples, beech, birch and bramble berry everywhere. Grass for the critters, studio for both of us artists, garages, barns, and a wee little house that I just love. Now I have to figure out how to condense enough stuff for a small country into a 1250 sq foot house. But it is MILES bigger than our 12×18 cabin. Wahoo! more to come later.
