This is my current spinning ....because of the lengthwise color strips I have to spin 'from the fold' and believe me, I really haven't got the hang of it yet, but I'm making a progress of sorts. You spin off of small sections, about 6 to 8 inches long and keep joining new as you go along. Tricky!

Today is my sister's birthday,and what a gift it is to have a sister. She doesn't use a computer at all, my what she is missing, eh? She has special needs and is doing really well just now for which I am so thankful. Since this is just the beginning of my day, I must get busy. Hmmm, I could just put slips of paper in a hat and pull one to see which chore to start first. Will it be ironing, or wash windows? No, it will be that cello music I am struggling with...the cut-time rhythm I am as dull at as can be. Playing in a group so far has been quite intimidating to me. We shall see how this turns out. I have no time for my cross-stitch and collaging and I just plain take the time for the spinning if I have to stay up late at night to do it! Hope you have a 'just right' day and get the most important thing on your 'to do' list done...and hey, there's sunshine today....hurray!

Ooooh, the colors in that wool so rich. I like the idea of putting little slips of paper in a hat :) I have some of the same one: ironing, windows, etc. and I'll add mowing, cleaning the fridge and pantry too! Happy birthday to your dear sister. Have a great day, Maggie Ann.

Maggie Ann, I love your enthusiasm for whatever you take up - fancy spinning wool! Those colours are lovely - just like my beloved peacocks! Thanks for the plug for my blog you put on here - how nice is that! Sorry to hear hubby has been ill - the flu is a wretched thing. Keep him home until he has fully recovered - it's twice as bad if you have a recurrence after the first bout, because your body is still weak.

Very pretty Maggie Ann. My to do list is just getting longer and longer and I just keep trying. My weight is doing good though so that makes me a happy camper today!! Have a great weekend. Sandy

Beautiful color of yarn! You amaze me with your energy level. I don't dare make a list, because it would depress me!

Thanks you for stopping by the tribute to my FIL. It has been quite a week, and I'm trying to get caught up. I really should quit blogging now and pay some attention to the little girls!
