Here we are -all 19 of us :) My mom's wish came true -a family picture of all of us together in the most magical place on earth.
It was an awesome adventure and there are many more pictures still to come :) Once I figure out the darn cell phone camera that is LOL.

So somebody sent me a HUGE bag of blended fibres with a request to spin it for her laceweight. Here's the first bobbin almost full - I have NO idea the yardage but will let you know when it gets plied up. Keeps me busy on the countdown to Disneyworld!!!!
We leave Thursday morning for five fun filled days!!!!!

Mohair and merino dyed in the same pot -waiting mommy to get out the drum carder and blend this luxurious colourway. Unless somebody snatches it out of my hands of course.
8 ounces of mohair and 8 of soft merino -the colours are just not done justice in the pictures :)
So while recovering from the tooth surgery I decided to start spinning again found some lovely shetland Jared had overdyed -turquoise, chocolate and some greens and greys and did a lovely two ply yarn with it :) Anybody want to knit me some socks LOL.
