I thought I would check in with you...I'm working on new felted goodies that I will reveal on Pink Saturday. On Wed. I had a fight with a brand new Dell computer that the company I work for, bought for the office...It didn't like Firefox...so we had to go around it....3 1/2 hours later. It gave me such a headache!!!. Then my boss came to do his monthly report...he gave me 100, do you think he knew how bad I needed that?! I woke up at 5 am two mornings in a row...ugh! This morning, I just needed a break...I took off around 11 am and headed to this little town called Newberg...It was such a beautiful drive...We are located in the Willamette Valley. Mountains to the east and to the west...a sprinkling of snow still on them. Blue sky. Daffodils in bloom. I started relaxing...I went to a new Fiber store where the sell Drum Carders and Spinning Wheels. It was fascinating. I came away with a lot of information and a bag of sparkly fibers. Thumbed through new books. It was so enjoyable. Stopped at an Antique Shop and right as I was ready to leave I saw a old pair of wool hand carders...They are really old...but still had all their teeth, so, for $15 I bought them (new ones can run $75 and up) I figured I could sell them if they didn't work...but oh they work beautifully!!! I'll take a photo in the morning to share with you. Have a wonderful evening!
