New Handspun!

Turquoise singleI've been getting a bit more even in my spinning, finally. I've got about half of this luscious aqua-turquoise-y corriedale spun up and it actually looks like something that will come out nicely once it's plied. Hurray for practice. Now that Chelle has been bitten by the spinning bug too, we are planning a possible spinning weekend sometime later this year... doesn't it sound like fun? (The idea blossomed when we both were lamenting that we couldn't afford to go to Yarn School this fall.)

Off to spin some more...

Cute little carSo, the Jeep has been sold & we turned around and got a smaller, more fuel-efficient car for Ali. It's a '96 Camry. Isn't it adorable?

An update on the bird situation

The mama bird mentioned a few posts back was safely reunited with her babies, apparently. We saw a good bit of activity with several birds around the wheelwell as the babies fledged and started to fly. Then, last couple of days, nothing. We checked the nest & discovered it had been abandoned -- they've grown up & flown away, it seems! At last we can drive the Jeep again. Just in time, too; Mike wants to sell it this summer. (Psst, wanna buy a gently used Jeep? No charge for an extra feather or two.)
