Reunited and it feels so good

Yesterday I got a surge of grim determination and decided that Bill WOULD dance with me again. I had lost the end of my yarn awhile back, and could NOT find it again no matter what I tried. So I worked on the big Romney/Border Leicester fleece on my other wheel when I had time, and tried not to think about Bill. But I foresee new fiber in my future (Beth is sending me a fiber prize for winning her blog contest, and I just MIGHT find something to spin at the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival this weekend), so I really wanted to finish that mohair cloud, ply it with the waiting red Wensleydale singles, and free up Louie for a new experience. Anyway, I don't know if I found the lost end or created a new "end" by breaking the yarn, but I GOT AN END. And resumed doing the twist with Bill, finding it much easier after some time away. Funny how things work out.
Stayed tuned for lots of photos and news from OFFF in coming days! I'm heading over tomorrow with sheep and fleeces, and hope to make a good impression for Boulderneigh. If you're there, look for plaid!
That's it for now at . . .

Good Luck at OFFF - sure wish we could come down for that sometime - maybe next year - this year our vacation is to Arizona -

Oh, you have hot enough weather to grow melons - lucky you - that yellow watermelon looks yummy - does it pretty much taste like the red?

Have a great weekend - & hope you find something really fun to try out on your wheel :-) T.

Wensledyale singles? I am jealous. I looked into buying a Wensleydale ewe but when I found out they start at $1,000 I quickly changed my mind. I havw a small sample that I combed. It is soooo nice.

I'm still spinning on fiber I bought from OFFF - it's one of my favorite purchases. I don't get to visit vendors often so don't know if I envy you or not $$$$$$$$$
