Pile o'spinning

I had these wonderful intentions to post at the beginning of the Tour de Fleece. It began on July 5 and ends on Sunday July 27.  Better late than never, I guess.  I’ve decided to spin at least 15 minutes a day on my McKenna Lee spindle from Greensleeves. So far, those 15 minutes keep expanding. I’ve improved so much since July 5. Instead of inchworming along, I’m actually dropping the spindle and keeping the twist out of my fiber. It’s amazing how much easier the spinning is when you do that.

Next up on the sewing queue is the It’s a Wrap skirt by Indygo Junction. I just have to turn up the hem and then add the waistband.  I love how the skirt drapes.  Now I just need to find (or maybe make?) the perfect little top to go with it.

In addition to all this craftiness, Amber and I have recorded our first podcast.  The podcast is called Craft Mentality.  We cover our crafty lives and pretty much anything else that might have inspired us.  The blog and first ‘cast are here, so come check us out.  I had tons of fun chatting with Amber, and I can’t wait for next week.
