Abagail

I must introduce you to my friend Abagail! She lives in my living room and when you get up in the middle of the night to get a drink she scares the crap out of you~ God I Love her! She was gift for my birthday from my friends at work! My dad is watching the kids while we are away and this is when I scdule things to be done around the house and he just loves when the people come to fix something see her and give him that " what the hell" look, he shakes his head and says I don't know why! Here's some pictures of her modeling one of my creations made with one of my handspun lumps!

Getting Ready for a Long week!

Well I didn't post yesterday cuz I had a Girl Scout meeting, adult one, as I am the troop leader from my daughters troop and yes my background check came back clean ( I was worried since I got a ticket in Canada that I never paid for peeing in public!) I learned about being a asset builder to our young people in Pinckney~ do they know who I am I don't think I would be a good asset builder:) enough troop talk ~ boring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I won't be around next week I have to so to lovely Brookings South Dakota for a Rainbow (no not the same sex lover group) meeting with my husband then on Thursday we will depart ways in Chicago and I will fly to Denver to see my Wonderful friend Tawnya for the weekend so I should have lots of stories after Halloween! I am trying to get packed and some Lumps ready to send ahead of time! Here's a link to my day job http://www.kidsgottaplay.com/

"Sweet Meat"

Well my saying for the day is "Sweet Meat" don't know why or how but used in the right text my husband thinks he's a stud, he is too:) But they were getting a little annoyed with me at work when they would say something and my response would be "Sweet Meat" so I had to stop before they taped my mouth shut!
Then when my husband got home from an up north trip yesterday(only Michigan pep's will understand "up north" so forgive me) I introduced him to Mlle Rose Bud and he thinks I have lost my mind! not to mention he thinks she's creepy & that was before I showed him how her eyes change colors! I love her and can't stop looking at her, which he thinks is even weirder! I brought her to work to show her off and yea, same response, I'm crazy!! Well I like crazy and I like me so poop on them:) Here's more pic's of her so you can stare too!

Weekend is over:(

What a bummer the weekend went by so quickly! I soooo don't want to go to work tomorrow but maybe someday I will win the lottery:) Not to mention I have to get up even early to take my son to school at 7am for his community service~ he got into a "drink" fight at lunch and could have started a food fight so now he has community service all week~ kids gotta love them!
I dyed Cotton all week and not cotton ball but pure cotton off of a cotton tree~ which I bought off ebay~ god I love ebay!

Then here's a picture of all the different dried cotton puffs.


Then tonight I sat down a spun up a lump of cotton. Cotton has short staples and if you don't know what staples are just know that short staples means pain in my ass! Cotton is a booger to spin then to set the spin you have to boil it which can affect the color! I hope you all love them when I'm done with them!

Off to bed and mentally get ready for tomorrow!

Elementary Days

Today when I picked up my daughter from school I had to use the bathroom and that's when it came rushing back to me as I sat there on the pot~ I use to share a toilet with my friend in elementary school~ why would we think this was a good idea? It was like there was only one toilet! I would be on one side and she on the other and we peed (is that even a word?) together! Think what you may but it was truly innocent and I had forgot until today!


My wonderful husband is off this weekend salmon fishing! Which means I can wash my dirty wool inside the house!! Not only does he not like the smell but he is allergic to the wool! Poor guy! This is a picture of Dirty wool getting Clean!!



Here's a cool website that sells my Lumps and even has a crochet kit with one of the lumps! http://www.knitpixie.com/
