I am so sorry I have not been updating recently.  This seems to just be the month that everything happens and that leaves no time for updating site.  Let’s see we have dance revue, my graduation, athletic banquet, the Bug’s graduation, dealing with law school acceptances, making decisions, starting belly dance classes and weight loss program.  Needless to say, it has been a full plate.  So let’s see, the Bug graduated 8th grade and is moving onto high school.  :'(.  Then my graduation from college was AWESOME but boring.  I finally have my bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice.  I was also accepted into two different law schools and had to make a choice between the two.  I chose the one that was ranked nationally and had a much higher state bar passage rate.  Dowside, I have to go full time.  So, I intend to get all the fiber I have right now, washed and prepped before I have to begin school.  Because once that starts, you may not see me for a while.  As far as the weight loss, I have officially lost eight pounds in two weeks!

Also tomorrow, I have been asked to demonstrate (in garb) spinning and weaving at a local high school for their Shakespeare/Renaissance Day.  Right now, I have a gorgeous colorway on my wheel called autumn.  It is made of golds with hints of green, red, browns and bits of other colors in it.  On the loom is a store bought yarn (yeah I know I cheated).  I am going to make a blanket out of it later.  I have to actually get it woven which I never seem to have time for right now.

Also my graduation brought awesome pressies!  I am now the proud owner of a double treadle, double drive wheel.  I knew when I got the first wheel that I wanted another wheel.  I was given one for graduation, a Kromski Symphony.  OMG she is the best.  I can spin so much faster now as her drive wheel is almost twice the size of the Prelude.  Don’t get me wrong, I am not abandoning the Prelude.  In fact, I know for a fact I cannot treadle slow enough on the Symphony to Navajo ply, so that is going to be her major purpose since I love doing it.

I will let everyone know how tomorrow goes along with pictures so that all can see.
