Why is it..............

Why is it, that February seems so long ? I'm sure that's a question that's been asked many times through the ages. I have managed to keep myself busy though, I finished my kitchen table quilt. I used it as a sacrificial quilt to learn to free motion quilt, and I learned a lot, that's why I'm signed up for a class on free motion quilting, it starts tomorrow. No actually I did really well, and I think because my new machine does really well at making it easier. I still have a lot to learn! I have also been doing some spinning. I bought this wool from a local wool producer, and it's
Romney Lambs wool. While spinning it, I was having second thoughts about it, wondering if I should continue to spend time on it. So when I finished three bobbins, I then plied the tree strands together, this would be the deciding factor. It turned out really soft, well for Romney, it's not known for it's softness, but I was pleased. It has a real nice shine to it, so it will reflect lite nicely. So it's off to a class tomorrow, and then I'll be working on Samantha's quilt, I can't show a picture yet, because she doesn't know what it's looking like.

Couldn't help myself, I had to do it!

What beautiful weather to wake up to, so I thought it would be a perfect day to hang sheets out. Look how high the snow is, the sheets almost touch. I just couldn't help my self, I had to do it!
