I had Tami Mulder do some hand processing of some rooed fleeces that I felt were "very fine" and needed some gentle processing. Tami took them home, washed them, picked them, (a lot) and ran them through her drum carder. I got half and she retained half for her hard work of processing them. I could not be more pleased with the results of her hard work!! This stuff practically spins itself and I find that I make excuses to sit down for a bit and do some spinning since it's simply an effortless fiber to spin.

I can't wait to get this done for our FFSSA shawl project!!!
I have lovely friends.........and they are extremely talented too. One of the upsides to having talented friends is the gifts I receive from them when they are feeling generous. Imagine my surprise to get a package in the mail last week that contained the 2 little works of art that my best buddy, Terry, sent to me. These quilted masterpieces could not be more perfect for me and my house. I have one round table and one rectangular table and the colors are spot on for my decor. Terry has recently retired from working for the State of Illinois for over 33 yrs and is using her considerable talent in the quilting world to start her own business.
