After Here’s the transformation. I simply love my new floors. With the new paint job, I really think the wood brings out the colors. I can’t wait to get the rest of the stuff in and organized. I have wanted to do this ever since I brought this house. This will be another item to check off the list of things that I want to complete before the year end.

I am trying to decide, if I should stop dying my hair and just let the gray grow. I try to see how it would look and to be honest; I don’t think I really like it. I don’t know if it’s the fact that it makes me look older or the reality that I have so much gray hair in the first place. I think I’ll wait a couple of more years and then let it go. For now I’ve made an appointment and the grays got to go. There goes for going natural. Have a great weekend.

Before.

This is what my living room looks like now, the carpets been removed and soon there be smooth hardwood floors to enjoy. For now I must show patience and watch as little by little it all comes to a final climax. Even so, it’s taking so long. I know these things take time and in the end it will all be worth the wait. Meantime, as the men work hard to accomplish their task, I will keep myself busy and out of their way spinning this lovely autumn color merino wool. I've divided the wool in half to have enough for a pair of socks, or maybe a pair of gloves. Here's the result of that portion of the wool that I have completed spinning and plying. It’s a bit more yellow then I would have liked, I am hoping that it will look better once it’s knitted into something special. Next post we hope to have the grand finale and maybe an after shot.

Marty and Me!


How can any one resist these two early in the morning, if that does not bring a smile to your face, I don't know what will. The weather is starting to cool down a bit, well 80 is cool for us, after almost 4 weeks of 100 to 90 degrees weather, 80 start to feel darn good. There has been so many things going on this year that I can't seem to grasp that it's almost coming to an end. Soon the Holidays will be upon us, another year will end with so much still left to do. I have started several projects around the house that needed mending, after the tenants moved out. Little by little they are starting to take place. Thank goodness I have a partner who's handy with power tools. He's made these project go a lot smoother. I should have taken before and after pictures. Next week the carpet will be removed and wood will be laid out. Once this is completed, I get to move in the rest of my stuff. Which is going to be a job in itself, since I brought back a ton of …

Going Green I wanted to do something about all those plastic bags, that are so bad for the environment. I made this from cotton Debbie Bliss yarn, in Demin blue. It's strong and can really stretch, so you can carry a lot. It was a really quick knit. I got the pattern from KnitPicks, it's free so check them out. http://www.knitpicks.com/.
Hold....


Which is the state in which all things fun to me have been for the last few months. Hoping that soon I'll be able to have the time to enjoy some knitting, spinning, or weaving. I don't know how those TV shows, where they show you how to remodel your home, always makes it look like so much fun. Don't believe a second of it. It's all hard work, and never ending. The only good part, is when it's done. Well by then you love the results and want to do something else. A vicious cycle I tell you.


In the knitting department, I've not picked up a knitting needle or project for that matter in weeks. I've done no spinning, or weaving. I do keep up with what what's new in knitting. Like the new Knit Picks wooden knitting needles. Any one seen them? They look really cool.


Work has been going well. I've made some new friends, even got invited to be part of a wedding. Still in other areas, I am being tested a bit, which is playing with some of my decision ma…
