Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunt, originally uploaded by Mountainsong.

Look at this great loot I got from my Scavenger Hunt swap partner, Annemarie {{ }} from Atlanta. I forgot to put the jar of peach salsa in the photo :-(( Awesome stuff. Thank you soooo much Annemarie ( I love you and your sis’s blog too) I would have put this up earlier, but it has taken me hours, and I do mean hours to get my fickr account set up to blog with. Easy now though, to post photos. I may learn this blogging thing yet.

Well, it’s Monday

New loom arrived, I couldn’t warp it or weave cause of this stupid hurt finger.  I’ll see one of the doc’s today to see if it is in fact broke.  Still hurts like heck.  I’ve decided to simplify me life and sell some stuff I don’t need or use.  After long consideration, my digital SLR camera will be the first to go.  My dreams of being Ansel Adams just aren’t happening, so my point and shoot cameras are more than adequte.  Next may be my machine quilting frame.  I’ve come to the conclusion that I like to piece the tops, but I don’t like the quilting part.  Well it’s time to go for now, I have to go see a patient.

Well, not actually on the way, but ordered from my wonderful semi-local fiber shop/enabler http://www.janesfiberandbeads.com/.  It will ship from schacht in Colorado on 1/15.  I need to go stash diving to see what I can do first on my own loom!   Isn’t it just wonderful to go wallow in your stash?

Not fiber related, but me related.  I had a heck of a time learning to get a button on my sidebar.  Who thinks up these widgets and stuff?  Who would have thunk a text box was for a image?  An WHO thinks a middle aged woman knows ANYTHING about “code” and how to write it so it works to get a silly image on the sidebar…..  I still don’t know how I finally got it there, and don’t know if I will be able to ever get another one there.  This blogging stuff has something of a learning curve, and I’m no dummy!

 Weight wise, I thought I’d blown it over Christmas, but got on the scales yesterday and had maintained!!  Now I need to get back to serious weight loss mode.  I didn’t have this surgery and almost die for nothing!!

P.S.  What are all those other widget thingies?

Hello world!

Me, a blog, HA!  I need one though for swaps sometimes and it could be fun to let friends know what’s going on in my world, so here goes.  I’m a fiber addict – knitting, spinning, weaving(just started) and quilting are my choices.  Occasionally some crochet.  I learned to crochet in the 6th grade, Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Cloyd taught several of us girls how to do it.  Knitting, I learned from a dear friend about 4 years ago.  After my first lesson, I left her house sweating bullets and her sweet (grown daughter) said she didn’t think I liked it.  I swore I wouldn’t let it beat me though and here I am today knitting every day.  I also scrapbook and am addicted to the internet, I love a husband and son and 6 dogs, 2 cats and a sun conure.  Let’s see where this goes, shall we??
