Sleepy Monday

It's been a sleepy Monday at Chez Davidson today.  Miss Etta is also sleeping, in the hall closet, among the quilts and sheets, but I couldn't get a photo in there.
  The pets haven't accomplished much, and I confess to one long mid-morning nap myself, but I have gotten some things done.
Here's my new blouse, one I cut out a few days ago.  I had to wait to finish it until I could buy a new iron today.  My 6-year-old Rowenta started leaking last week, and yesterday, it fried its heater.  I replaced it with a cheap one this time.  We'll see if it lasts any longer!
  Yesterday, LouAnn sent me a photo of me spinning at the retreat, and I just have to share it.  I said in my blog how much I loved spinning, but here, you can see that it wasn't love at first turn!
Yep, the look on my face says it all!  And my first bobbins came out a little, um, artisanal, shall we say?

I need more roving to finish up the second bobbin to have enough to ply the two together.
  Well, it's almost afternoon nap time!  Happy Monday, and happy weaving!

You were spinning like a pro before the day was over! Just'll get better and better! I'm not surprised that Bella is sleeping...she worked hard this weekend herding weavers!!!!

I love that blouse. It will look great on you. You need a day of rest.

I know where you can get more roving to practice with.......for free! You're doing great. It just takes time to get it right. You're better than me at this point!!!

You did a great job, Maggie! Your singles are a lot more even than mine were. Now, all you have to do is spin a lot of wool. I am getting that book, intentional spinning, I want to be able to vary my spinning more than I do right now. Like on purpose, vary my yarn! You can have a look at it when it comes. Sorry you ran out of roving, I know where some is, don't buy any!

I think your spinning looks great! The blouse is lovely too, but I have to admit, sleeping critters always make me very happy to see, especially in my house! ;)
