I've been really lax in blogging lately. Very unlike me.

In my defense, I've been spring cleaning.
That means I tear through the house like a whirlwind, de-cluttering, filling garbage bags with clothes and boxes with books, which then get put into the back of my van to be driven around for weeks on end. This particular batch of stuff will be in the van until June 20th. I kid you not, that's my next trip off. I should take a picture of my car, to show you the full effect!
But look at what I found at the post office today...
Goodies from Extreme Spinning, won from Darcy's 2 yr Anniversary contest!
How adorable is that little spindle?? How awesome are the colors of that fur?? It's super-soft!
I've been playing with it all afternoon. And by playing, I don't mean using it in any fiber-related way, I just twirl it because I don't even know which end is the top.
Oh, and I did chase The Big Guy with it at one point.
He's home sick.
Why that involves following me around my very small kitchen is one of the great mysteries of my life. So, yeah, I chased him with a spindle.
If I never learn to spin, at least I will have found a use for my sweet little spindle.
But I really want to learn, so I will continue to hold out hope that maybe this year will be the year.
this makes me happy. I could sit and look at this for hours.
It has sparklies!
It looks like snow!
Now, I'm going to sit and pet my sheep fur, and
wield twirl my spindle until my eyes close.
