Here, there and everywhere....

Well its been a while since I've updated my blog. I guess you could say I've been a bit busy the past few weeks. I've been here, here , here, and most recently here. I guess you can say time flies when you are having fun.

The fabulous fiber fest was fun and delightful. I discovered Lisa Souza's Yarns and all I can say is WOW! I finally found the motivation to attempt a sweater, of course I need to finish all of my various socks in progress, MS3, and my flower petal shawl. I'll get to it eventually but in the meantime I've been pretty busy mastering my spinning wheel. Granted I'm not quite creating the most uniform yarn but I like all of the flubs and bumps I'm putting into it. I'm enjoying cutting up scraps of other yarns and adding it to my roving as I go, it gets to be pretty funky but with this as my inspiration my yarn is pretty tame! Morbid I know but it sure made me laugh!!!

Vegas with the folks was fun. I enjoyed being tour guide and was glad to have a good laugh at the Fremont Experience. All I have to say is that the "fabulous Constantine" wasn't quite as fabulous as he thought he was. We caught a cool Imax movie at the Luxor and I enjoyed my mom getting scared by the 3d fish. I only wish we could have seen the Dinosaurs movie, then I think she really would have jumped out of her chair.

The gem fair in San Diego was nuts but fun. I stocked up on some supplies for my jewelry business and made some good contacts. I've got lots of great ideas but before I can start making new items I've been updating my inventory which is not nearly as fun as making new items. So far I think I've got everything entered an accounted for but the DH needs to double check a few things, it helps having a bean-counter in the family.

Last but not least, I survived the San Diego Quilt show and all I got was fabric! What?? Yes I can hardly believe it, after years and years of relentless pressure I finally found a quilt pattern that I liked and the fabric to go with it. I told the vendor that I wasn't sure if I wanted to give my mom the satisfaction of purchasing items to make a quilt since she's been trying to convert me for years. See my mom likes stuff like this where as I like colors like these, pretty much the brighter the better. So you see my dilemma...anyway I found some fabulous batik and this pattern that looks easy so now I've got that on my list of things to do.....So many projects too little time!!

Well that's the update for now....I'm off to make a version of this for my mom so she can keep track of her good deeds for the day
