What are you reading?

I'm cleaning out my books and came across several old books that I don't remember reading.  When I was at Monticello earlier this year, there was a volunteer tour guide who did such a fantastic job of bringing the conditions and lives of the former slaves to life that when I saw Up From Slavery in my old book collection, I decided I needed to read it.  I'm only a few pages into it, but so far I'm not disappointed.  Let me know what you think of it, and I'll post my impressions as well.

Promises . . .

Ok. So today I start blogging again. Tomorrow is the last day of my work assignment that was supposed to be 2-3 weeks, and has ended up being 6-7 weeks.--I'm leaving before the project is done, but I'm just done, as in so ready to leave!!

So look for blogging everyday.  It's a commitment I've made to myself, and I'm gonna do it!!!

Can hardly wait to spin, spin, spin!!!

This is some of Kay Slaughter's roving from  Fantastic stuff!!!  I think I need more, though, since I've spun and plied this.  Love, love, love looking at it and fondling it!!!  Thought I had a photo of the complete stuff, but alas, I don't.  I'll get one taken and posted soon!
