Stormy

I came home from Madrona Fiber Arts Winter Retreat with a lovely upper respiratory crud. I stayed home all last week to keep my germy self to myself. My work day was filled from one meeting to another.

Thank goodness for video conferencing. Actually, thank goodness for smart video conferencing software that allowed me to put up a picture of myself sailing in the Aegean instead of a makeup-less me that hasn’t had the energy to shower that day.

However, Stormy was very interested in all these talking heads from my laptop. She wanted to have her say too. That is, before she decided I had worked enough and it was time for a nap by laying down across the keyboard.

The upside to all the meetings was that I got a lot of spinning done.

This represents the most spinning I’ve done on my Golding since SOAR. I might get through the second silk brick in much less than 2 years!

Here’s what the silk brick looks like in fiber form. Isn’t it pretty? I love all those subtle color shifts.
