What I Did This Weekend...
a.k.a. My CRAZY Friends!

Here's the Thing...

I've been very busy trying to get things organized so that I can start Selling some of my rovings/batts & yarns. Saturday, I dug out tons of stuff that I've been "meaning to do something with". Sunday morning, I arranged a photo shoot ~ in my living room ~ so that I can start advertising stuff. (more about that later)

Shortly after trashing my house, setting up the 'photo shoot', my doorbell rang. It was Virginia ~ coming to spin, card, and knit with me. A few minutes later, Terry pulled up the drive. What fun! We're going to have a playing with fiber day!!

The ladies took turns spinning on my Roberta Electronic spinner (of which I have decided I am going to become a distributor!). Notice Terry's attire: I do keep my thermostat at 50 degrees! I did turn it up (all the way to sixty!) for the girls but they still seemed to think that it was "rather cool".

Virginia wrapped herself up in one of my shawls and was modeling the gigantic 'bag' that I knit ~ ages ago, and am finally going to felt!

OMG! She cracks me up!!!

Then, Virginia gets the brilliant idea that the bag would be a perfect "cat carrier".


Poor Lily! (this woman is a HOSPICE NURSE!)

Virginia assures me that Lily "likes it!"

OK, Virginia...let the nice kitty out now.

Disclaimer: No cats were harmed in the making of this blog post.

DREAM says...
"I was wondering what was going on in there ~ those ladies were mighty rowdy!!"

I'm still chuckling, Dreamer!


  1. LMAO! Too funny. That shawl and bag are awesome though!

  2. Oh Virginia, you let the cat out of the bag!!

    What a fun time. I wish I could come over and join in your fun with fiber days!

  3. LOL Looks like all, well except the cat had a fun filled day.

    Let me know when you are set up with all the info on the Roberta...inquiring minds really wanna know info about it. ;-)

  4. OMG! and you invited me to sit and spin with THAT group. Sounds like loads of fun and laughs. Both of them are needed these days. Sorry I couldn't make it, but you know we did get our work accomplished here.

  5. ROFLMAO!!! And welcome to the Ertoel Family! ;-)

    (BTW...have you heard from Becca? I've sent emails with no replys lately and I'm starting to worry...)

  6. Looks like a good time was had by us the bag when you've finished felting it!

    Virginia and I saw the felted bag after it had been through one cycle in Nancy's washing machine--in case any of you are wondering, it was STILL big enough for a kitty to be comfortable inside. Virginia's right, too, towards the end, the kitty really WAS starting to like it inside that cozy bag--don't let Nancy's sarcasm convince you otherwise. She'll like it even more once it dries up soft and fuzzy after felting.

    BTW, those are my Grandpa's bib overalls I'm wearing. He was a REAL diary farmer, not a wannabe hobby farmer like me. Hopefully in time I'll at least be a real hobby farmer, no longer wannabe...I'm so glad my aunt saved his overalls. They are too big for me, but very comfy and they keep the fuzzies off me on a fiber day.

  8. I don't know how to spin but I would have liked to come over for the laughs.

  9. Looks like you had a wonderful day!

  10. I love the dog, absolutely. not. watching.

  11. I really love the big bag; I could get a lot of school papers in that! Very cute baskets you have there too:)

  12. Love those fiber pictures! And I think Lily did like it in the bag. Cats love to hide.

  13. Looks like a rowdy - I mean a *fun* time! Glad you had it - thanks for sharing it with those of us who have to wait a little while for the next one.

    There IS going to be a next one, isn't there??
