Tour de Fleece Start

After much deliberation, I have decided to participate in Tour de Fleece. I won’t join a team, and my goal will be to spin daily. Simplicity is the name of my game. With my desire to spin so low this year, I think any progress at all will be a big deal to me.

I have had some dyeabolical fiber on spindles for awhile now. I can’t remember when I started it. But, it gets left to sit for weeks at a time. I figured that finishing up a current spin should be goal one for TdF.

I’ve really only just a little bit left to spin, and then I’ll pull out my wheel for plying.

Tonight is annual Tank Wars, so I’ve been cooking all day for the party. Below are my first homemade pita at the new house. I also made a couple dips to go with it, including pesto with basil from my garden. Also up, mojitos, as I’ve now gotten some mint well established outside.

Speaking of gardens, there are new lilies in our garden. This one actually got transplanted to our back fence when I put my veggie garden in.

And this one is possibly my favorite.

It is still in with my veggies. I love the scalloped edges, the gentle color, and the yellow in the middle. Quite the stunner!

Happy Fourth friends, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

  1. I hope you’re enjoying the TdF. This is my second year and I love it. I love your support spindles, they seem a bit intimidating to me
