More important – How do I get it out of my car?? I need some strong people to help me wrestle it out! It’s a Toro, not new but the engine was replaced  a couple of years ago. Owned by one person, used within his family all these years. Started right up and everything looked to be working fine! Now maybe I can finally get my gardening started. Who would have thunk I’d have a new-to-me tiller today? Not this girl. I guess never be closed down to unexpected things to happen in your life. Tomorrow, I till. Want to…

Shannon hung this shadow box tonight. Sweet, right? Van can stand up, grab an ax, and put a zombie right down. Plus the wood is awesome. Pine but I think it looks like maple..bird eye maple? Axes are held into place by powerful magnets, really cool.

I’m hoping to use it as a standing desk for my computer station, take some stress off my back. I drove up to the Cities to get it from the talented Heather Rosenwald of Northbound Wool Goods, and had a nice chat about wool and up cycling. Now getting a coffee and back on the road shortly.

Just a quick update post before I tear into homework for the day. All is well and so rather unnerving. Meh. If that shoe drops, I’ll roll out from underneath it. The new position at the Rochester Public Library is going well. I’ll be working at the Customer Service desk that you see as you walk into the library, mostly evenings and weekends, I think. That’s not a big issue at the moment as I really need to be scheduled to train with a number of different people and not go into brain-overload. I reached at point today going over the…

Next week is A Monster of a Spinning Week! Presented and organized by The National Needlearts Association, Spinzilla challenges hundreds of spinners to compete in teams for prizes and recognition. All funds raised by our entry fees go to education, so I get to feel good there, and there are some awesome sponsors helping to make this happen. It’s become an important event in the world of fiber arts and I’m glad to be part of a team. My team captains are Lisa Ramsey and Lisa Hanesworth, owners of The Angora Girls Fiber Arts shop in Winona, Minnesota. I caught…

  I got the forge, my forge, up and running today at Squash Blossom Farm’s Cow Puja event. Richard Burnett taught me how to start the fire, how to manage the heat, how to set up your tools so they were handy. In the picture above, he is working on a piece he heated in his own forge, behind him there, with a young helper manning the air. I worked at keeping a fire hot, learning how to manage my tools and how to drive from the shoulder; I’m not pounding a nail, after all. I had a great time….

Headache most of the day as the weather fronts have ground against each other. Or I have a bug. I took a five hour nap and could do it again although I guess that would be called ‘going to bed for the night.’ However, before the nap Van and I went over to the Castlerock Arms and Armor Museum in Alma, WI. Amazing collection of authentic edged weaponry for an artists’ town along the Mississippi River. I really enjoyed visiting with the docents as well. We also visited The Weaving Studio, Tansy’s on Main, and the Danzinger Vineyard….and no, the…
