Hey! I made a thing! It's called a "fish hook extender" and is apparently a thing on Disney cruises. Someone I know asked me to make one for them, so I did. Next time I will have to charge more though, that interfacing is expensive!

Yes you do! And I guess they group families by tens, and encourage them to exchange little trinkets and things, which they put in the pockets of these fishhook extenders, which hang on the cabin doors.

So, I talked to the nice shepherd at Sheep Street today, and it looks like we will be picking up sheep on the 13th or the 20th...now to figure out the logistics! Anyone who was interested in helping out, now's the time! We can do handspun skeins, updates several times a year, or partial fleeces, depending on your interests! I'm soooo excited!!!
Tomorrow I stop by the coop to check out their trailer rental policy, and get my hitch parts! #sheep

And in the next picture, too. The broommaker I knows has cross-pieces on the end, so it rolls like a square wheel and he has a larger surface to brace his feet.

Just found +Locked Illusions​ via my husband's Facebook feed, love love love her work! She's got an Alice in Wonderland series that is totally awesome! Circle her up and make her welcome, as it looks like she's new to the plus. If you like horror, fantasy, or dark photography, you will like her work!

Just wanted to update the campaign for Johns car. We are about 40% of the way there in just over 2 days! We have added some premiums, so if you contributed please go see if there's anything you would like! I spent some time with John on sunday, and he now has my bicycle to make his commute a bit faster/easier. When I told him about this campaign, and that people were donating, he was overwhelmed, moved to tears and speechlessness. He said he just never thought anyone would care enough to help someone like him. You all have given him hope that this will be just a small detour, and not something worse. Many thanks to those of you who have already shared or donated, you are making a huge difference!

This campaign is for my friend, John. He is the best guy I know, and is having a very hard time. His car just died, and he will now lose one of his two jobs because he can't get there to work. We have helped his as much as we can, so thought this might be a way to continue helping. John has no id...

So, I decided to watch all the Star Trek: the original series, from the beginning. I have seen many of them but not all. Saw the pilot episode for the first time, and man, the guy that played Captain Pike was very nice to look at! Episode 2, the Man Trap, is hilarious, death by hickey! Knowing how Kirk was such a hound, he would have been my first suspect for the killer.

Sharing in hopes of finding a donor. Pass it on!
 
Can you help "Pay It Forward?"

Thursdays on the internet are usually reserved for throwback items. Baby pictures, wedding pictures, and first dates, to name a few. 

For #ThrowBackThursday  I am sharing a story I hope you will share to help get the word out.

A high-school friend (see, there's the throw back! ) has a brother who is in need of a kidney. The more eyes that view the story, the better chance he has of finding a living donor.
 
Will you help spread the word? Thanks in advance!

Had a wonderful visit with +Merry Merino​! She arrived thursday afternoon, and is leaving this morning. We played with fiber all day, and she carded Batts for the first time, and spun up a whole skein too! Sent her home with more to spin too! Come back any time and play some more!

Today's views from the farm, sheep grazing by the tractor, and a baby daddy-longlegs, and our girl ducks. Oh, and the nest of 18 eggs that escaped detection until today, lol. It's a beautiful day, I have a good friend coming to visit, and a class scheduled!

Yes they were hiding the eggs. I think these must be easter bunnies and not chickens at all!

Story
Tagline
Woodworker and Textile artist, hippie chick, libertarian, Mom and wife.
Introduction
I'm a hippie chick, mom, wife and artist now starting my own business. I choose the best fleeces from the old sheep breeds that are in decline, clean, dye and prep those fleeces for spinning. In this way I am working to preserve the heritage breeds and make the spinning of their wool as easy and enjoyable as possible.  I also make wooden tools for textile artists and spin and knit; I sell all these things at small shows and fairs in TN.  You can find me at www.spinnersendstudio.com and at www.etsy.com/shop/SpinnersEndStudio, and www.knitnick.deviantart.com. I also draw mandalas and usually have some available for sale. 
Bragging rights
I have a BFA in woodworking from Herron School of Art, IUPUI, as well as a MLS from IU. I have a good husband and a wonderful son, and a whole menagerie of four-legged friends including dogs, cats, goats, donkeys, and some winged ones too, chickens and ducks.

Skills
