I went to my first FiberGuild meeting at Greenbank Mill last night!
I met a lot of new friends like, Gerry (pictured above in blonde), Heather, Dee, Sjon, and Lucy. I have to warn you, I could be mispelling these names…but since I intend to do a little featurette on all of them as I get to know them…I’ll get the details all figured out for you guys. Also, I saw some friends that I met at the last spin in…Laurel (pictured above in redhead) and Natalie…who actually isn’t pictured above in anything but is represented by some wonderful handspun below all my yapping. 🙂
Gerry actually has a farm of sorts. She just had two baby goats! She showed me photos of “her babies” as she called them. Apparently, baby goats are real sweethearts! Nice to know. Gerry also raises angora rabbits and a few other animal known for their spinability as well. When I retire, I want to be Gerry’s neighbor! 🙂
The meeting was a lot like having a little get together. We ate. And we at some more, lol! Then, we worked on our projects. Completely non-intimidating! LOVE that!
As I mentioned above, Natalie showed me her handspun from last time.
She finished her bobbin. Look how fine that is! And she’s going to navajo ply it! This is getting good y’all!
She showed me some of her completed projects too…
Now, let me just interject here. I really don’t know how she could stand me! Seriously. I kept taking her stuff and running outside with it for some better light!! LOL! She was a good sport about it though. She has seen the blog (hi Natalie!), and I think she knows that it’s really a sickness I can’t help at this point. But how could I help it? Just look at that!
Oh! And I met another friend there too…
This is Lewis.
Lewy is one half of Lewis & Clark (the other cat on the premises that has thus far been anti-social…). Lewy kept giving me looks like this until I stroked him a little bit. Then, we became good acquaintances. I think I’d better strengthen this relationship and give him some more pets next time, lol! I love cats!
I spent so much time yapping and taking photos of everything else, I barely got around to taking photos of my spin. I’ll show y’all that next time. 🙂
When I got home, all was well and as expected. Girl Child was jumping like a wild thing on the bed. That’s actually normal. Boy Child was watching a movie…meh.
So, the next meeting is in the fall. See you in September!
No, not you. I’ll see you all soon. 🙂
