My Tour De Fleece

Here is the fleece I'm spinning for the Tour de Fleece. It's from Gale's Art and the colorway is called Majic. I started spinning it on Sunday. I just pre-drafted the last part of the first roving this evening.

Here is the pile of pre-drafted roving before I rolled it into a ball. The colors in this roving make me think of the rainbow sherbert we used to eat as kids.

This shows how big these bobbins are. There is already about 3 ounces a fiber on the bobbin. I could fit all 8 ounces on one bobbin, but I'll spin half each on a bobbin for plying.

The DH and I had a wonderful time at Claudia's house this past Sunday. We were there to celebrate her Birthday. It was a fun and relaxing time and we even got to put together some jigsaw puzzles. I love jigsaw puzzles! I have lots of great memories of the talk and laughter over puzzles at my mom's house during the winter.
Katy and I had a great time putting together a wooden puzzle she had on the coffee table. I've never had the chance to work on a custom made wooden puzzle. It was such a treat! A group of us put together a couple more puzzles before we left. I think they did two more after we left. There is a huge collection in her basement that we were allowed to look through. It is an amazing collection. I bet I could find every puzzle I've ever done in her basement. We even saw a puzzle with 18,000 pieces!


  1. Okay so the puzzles were fun, but you WERE cheating.

    I'm just sayin'.

  2. WAIT!

    I thought Steve was the one that was cheating.

    IMO, all of you (including K) are not to be trusted.
    The thought of cheating while puzzling is just appalling.
