Everything for the weaver, spinner, knitter, felter and dyer...

I'm really not sure what to call this entry. I don't think there's a common theme so it's probably best called "Hodgepodge". Maybe when I'm done writing, I'll have a better name.

Thoughts on the weather...it's been unusually hot and humid here in Maine. I realize that's not unlike the vast majority of the country. I find it hard to believe that there are people who still don't believe that we humans have affected our weather.

Thoughts on the shop...I have an unusual abundance of spinning students right now. I'm wondering why. Is there an article about some superstar spinning yarn that I missed that's prompted this interest all at the same time? Not complaining, just sayin'.

Thoughts on life...it is fragile. One minute everything is great; you're just skipping along. The next, not so much. Before you ask, I'm fine. Just worried about some other people in my life.

Thoughts on gardening...I guess you could say I really don't do it. I have flower beds and lots of weeds, two struggling tomato plants, and fruit trees that have to fend for themselves. Nevertheless, I try and take a moment each day and admire a new flower that's bloomed, a pretty weed that has established itself, and a raspberry just asking to be eaten.

Okay, let's call it "Thoughts".
