I think Mildred, my trusty wheel, was happy to get out and meet new people as well. Since I have spent the summer spinning on the great wheel at work, I think she has been feeling a little neglected.
Mildred and I have been working on spinning this 500 pounds of gray roving for what seems like years, so we agreed to make a wee little purchase of Blue Face Leicester to brighten our spirits back in New Sheville.
Kim pointed out that I had not yet properly given a tour of New Sheville on the blog. (Did you notice the name change to New Sheville? A nod to towns such as New Palestine, New Winchester, New Salem that signal the difference from the old.) I have to say, New Sheville is working out nicely. It sits on the main floor adjacent to the dining room and leads to the back deck where I let the dogs in and out multiple times a day.
It took some doing to pare down enough to fit everything in.
Nevertheless I somehow managed to fit all of my spinning, knitting, weaving, quilting, embroidery and sewing paraphernalia into one room instead of three.
Well, except for the fleeces. There was no room for the fleeces.
They ended up down the hall and to the right--inside the shower. Hey, it works! Nobody ever uses that shower anyway.
The small door on the left of this little hallway leads to the kitchen so I can keep my eye on what ever is cooking.
So really, everything I need to survive is at my fingertips. I could easily set up a cot and live back here. I just can't shower. Doh!
