Firsts!!


Wow it's been 1 year already. Little Cameron turned 1year old this past week. What a little cutie. I was unable to attend but was sent lots of pictures. From the look of it, he is now the owner of many new toys and clothes. I'm hoping to be able to make a summer visit this year. My goal is to see the grandbabies at least twice a year. They visited me right before Thanksgiving this year and it was wonderful. It's hard when the family is spread all over the country. Happy 1sts Birthday little Cameron. <3>

This wonderful creation arrived yesterday in the mail. We ordered this a couple of weeks ago and it arrived a week later a little beat up from the shipping.. We told the seller and they were wonderful and a new one was shipped out that day. This time it was packed in an extra box and more paper stuff in the box for protection.. of course I couldn't wait to try it. When it arrived I was running out the door to my knitting group. I enjoyed knitting with the ladies but in the back of my mind all I could think of was this brand new drum carder just sitting there on the table at home. It was a little chilly last night and Tuesday night is Cream of Chicken wild rice soup night at Panera bread.. Panera's is right in the same shopping plaza where we meet for knitting so I ran and bought two soups with bread bowls (my favorite), one for me and one for my son and drove home. He had the drum carder all assembled when I got home..we ate soup.. he had a movie already to watch...I'm still thinking that I need to try out the drum carder asap.. but I watched the movie with him.. and then.. took out all this fiber I've been collecting, which really isn't that much to some peoples standards, and started adding this fiber and that. Below are the finished batts.. soft and fluffy wool/bamboo/tencel. I wanted to see what all natural, mixed fiber batts would look like.. On the last one I added some black wool. I can't wait to see how they spin up!!

I know I'm so excited about it. I don't know why I waited so long to buy one.
