Diets - Phooey! And other trivia...

I hate dieting. Just day 2, and already I'm ready to give up. So I guess I better increase my calories before I lose all semblance of self-control.

I can't believe I forgot to mention that I bought a spinning wheel Sunday, because of course a woolley baby farm must have a spinning wheel. LOL I'm so excited! It's coming from Michigan, and she said she would have it in the mail tomorrow. I can't wait! It is a beautiful Ashford Elizabeth. Rissa is going to have to give me lessons. She spins so beautifully. Of course, I get to take credit for being the Great Enabler, because I introduced her to the weaving and spinning guild.

I've been knitting on my Leaves of Grass socks, and they are coming along. I started on my Casalguidi bag from Inspirations Magazine that I want to finish for seminar. I cut the linen for it 1 inch too short. They had published a correction for the instructions, and I had the correction all printed out and with my stuff. But guess where genius put the correction? At the end, where I forgot all about it. So I cut according to the original instructions, and it is about an inch too short. Oh well, such is life. I'll post a picture after I've made a little more progress.

I talked to Megan tonight. It was wonderful to hear her voice. I am really proud of her, and how well she is doing up in Kentucky. She is working for a daycare, and planning on going to school. They have a scholarship program that will help her. She said she wishes we would move up there. I told her, buy me a farm and I'll be packed and moved tomorrow! :o) It really is pretty country there, with all the horse farms. Plus EGA's headquarters is there, and I would love to see that! I wish it wasn't so far, so I could go see her. If plane tickets didn't cost so much, I would fly up there.

Well, the puppies are waiting for mama to come to bed, so goodnight!

Diets are evil. I will never, ever diet again. Seriously!

I can not wait for you to get the wheel and to teach you to spin. :-) I have been spinning a little, but it is still too hot to enjoy it.

I am glad that Megan is doing well, but I thought she was coming home in October. Where ever you end up with a wooly-baby farm, I promise to come visit.

thanks for the compliments on the shawl and roving. It sounds like your husband does need to quit, guns, armed gaurds yikes. Your embroidery is very pretty, and you are brave to knit without a photo, I have a hard time following patterns, seat of my pants knitting is my style!
