Feedly

There has to be a better way. A long time ago I used to use Google Reader to keep up with all of my favorite blogs. Then Google did away with Google Reader and I couldn’t find another way to keep up with the blogs I love and so I gave up. Well, not really. If somebody would post their […]

Changes….just a little, or maybe a lot.

I’m in the midst of changing some things. Some of them I’m not ready to tell anyone about yet. But I’m working on some new things and I thought I’d let you know. I can tell you that I’m adding some new classes and taking away some of my offerings that I think are a little tired or less popular […]

Endings, New Beginnings and Even More Questions (as usual)

  Here is the summing up of the whole Blue Faced Leicester Dress process. I began spinning this yarn in January of 2016. The intention was another skirt with 2 ply warp and weft but things changed and morphed over the whole time. Mostly because there is a lot of time to think while you spin. Also because some new […]
