Happy 4th. of July!

I hope everyone is having a good week! I certainly am, and just have to share my excitement!
#1) I sold 3 rugs on Etsy within one month. Now, call me crazy, but I felt that people tend to 
      purchase wool stuff when autumn arrives. Guess I was wrong! Mind you, I'm not 
#2) My son is moving back home!
#3) Today I found out that I won a $1000 shopping spree at Macy's in Providence, RI. I entered 
      online not really thinking anything would come out of it. The shopping spree will occur the 
       day before my birthday, this month. How's THAT for a birthday present! Hubby said he 
       will pay the taxes.  They will film it to make a 2 minute clip, so that it can be shown at a gala 
      event that RI Monthly Magazine is having, and they're giving me two VIP tickets to the 
      event. Should be fun!!!

Projects I'm working on:
#1) I'm weaving a second scarf on my Cricket Loom. It's amazing to see how bad I was weaving when I started my first practice scarf, and you can see progressive improvement all the way through, with a darn nice looking ending. Weaving is so much fun, and I'm  happy I started, after wanting to weave all these years.
#2) I'm hooking a horse project. I need to get moving to replenish my Etsy store! Wriggling my nose to fill the shop just isn't working!
#3) I keep practicing my spinning. I love my wheel, but I also love the hand spinners. I received a kick spinner this week, and it's great having two free hands to draft the wool.
#4) Cleaning my home (BIG you think I have time for housework after doing all that other stuff?!?! )

Wishing whoever reads this (if anyone reads it...LOL), a wonderful, safe 4th of July.

  1. Congrats on that super win! What fun you'll have with that. And what great news about your rugs! I've been spinning a lot too. But, I really need to dye up some wool today for a rug I'm working on. Have a happy 4th!
