I’m about as happy as these colors are today!
That’s a lot of happy, huh? 😉
Things are pretty busy right now. I have two jobs I’m keeping up with at the moment and one that I just got that I’m still pinching myself about! OMG! Somebody needs to just pin me down to the ground or I will float right on up to the sky one of these days! Anyway, things are moving right along…
This weekend, I was able to get to the spin-in. I felt like I hadn’t been there in ages!
It was a pretty intimate turn out this time with the usuals coming through.
Natalie, Bob and Laurel were all set up when I walked in. We all found out that we had all purchased the subscription to the new spinning magazine, PLY. I think Ms. Boggs would be really pleased with our little community, lol!
My buddy, Natalie, has been a pretty busy spinner.
I love this orange! I believe she said she has gotten a lot of the fiber she’s spinning now from a club that she is or was part of at one time. Bob chimed in about being part of a fiber club too. I’ve really got to get into one this year. I need a fiber fix in the worst way! It’d be nice to pay for a club and just have it automagically sent to me once every season or something. And because it’s usually picked according to someone else’s influences, I’d probably get things I wouldn’t normally set out to buy but would spin up into a dream.
Yum! See what I mean?
I imagine getting into a club and spinning up other fibers and colorways would expand my own personal set of “likes”, so that I can be even more risky when I am choosing for myself. I like that idea.
I finished up my Kool-Aid spin while I was there and I did get a pretty plump chain-ply. I like it, but I don’t know that I wouldn’t have liked any ol’ spin after the news I got last week. I could’ve spun up spaghetti and still have been over the moon!
Fortunately, I had this from the MDSW still left to spin up.
What about the cotton spin, you say? I’m working on it. But, after getting hired last week, I’m still kinda giddy. Cotton just wasn’t hitting the right spot…
But, this is 50/50 BFL and Tussah silk-and it definitely was! It needs a little bit of a tug when drafting. But it’s pretty soft and I love the mellow color.
After the spin-in, I had a birthday girl to see about. 🙂
So, it seems, cake + ice cream + Sponge Bob Crabby Patties candy + popsicles +musical cards+ a new bike = a brand-spanking new, happy eight year old! That bike must’ve flew around the house at the speed of sound. And now I can rest assured those growing knees won’t go through the handle bars anytime soon…She’s growing up so fast anymore.
Yesterday, I also got to visit a very special place…
This is the school where I will be working this upcoming school year as their permanent Elementary School Art Teacher!
This is my classroom. I’m SO excited!! Can you tell?
This is firt time I will teach art on a permanent basis! I’m ecstatic!
They’re in the middle of moving some things out and other things in…it’s summertime. But, I was so surprised at how bright and coloful the room was! And happy too. 🙂 I haven’t had a formal tour yet, but I was allowed to walk around and see a few of the important places and I don’t think I’ll get too lost the first day. This is going to be such a great learning experience for me too. I can just feel it!
Next up is this wall where I will be planning a mural. I was told that I can do anything I want on this wall. Did you read that? ANYTHING I WANT!!
Got a few ideas. We’ll see what goes up next!
