Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Some of you have no idea what weekend it was last week. Of course, if you're not American, that would make sense. I'm American and I'd have forgotten if husbeast wasn't home an extra day. I'm very proud of those of you that planned projects and actually did some or all of them.
I didn't actually plan on any dubious acts of housecleaning. The only thing I planned to do was to make pickles. I didn't ever go out and get the ingredients to do so. In fact, I still haven't. The local store doesn't have too much of the stuff needed and I'd have needed to go to the next town. Some days it's hard enough to leave the neighborhood, let alone try to go for a 20 minute drive. Let's see if I can get the ingredients before the cucumbers go bad.
This week lets talk about the time it takes to do "around the house projects".
I did projects this weekend. Sort of. I'd been wanting to give Gus a better look. Finally I figured out what he needed painted on him:
If you click the photo you'll be taken to the page for it and see all of Gus's pieces. I took the photos before the final sealing coats were added so it's still in pieces. As soon as I get it back together I'll take a photo of him back together. There are 2 more wheels that I started working on this weekend. They will be the wheels that are getting set up in the shop.
I also got in all the Fricke gear and I have to say that yarn winders are amazing. They even have a counter right on them. The electric winder is bliss. It's incredible. If you've ever been to the Fricke site their wheels might look disappointing, especially when you see the super low price tag. I've started to customize one and the finish and the wheel itself is really quite nice. More pictures to come but if you're interested in a winder or a wheel, email me and I'll take some quick pictures for you.
