I know what you mean...I was given a homemade spindle that was too heavy for most spinning, but I did learn to spin on it anyway.  (I kept it for heavy-duty yarns.)  Then I made myself a top whorl CD spindle (look for instructions on-line!) and it works great!

Though, my spinning wheel is kind of the light of my crafting life, so I don't use the spindle much anymore!

Where was everyone today?  Cry

It was only me and Wootwoot, but we both had some nice conversation and got some crafting done. Missed everyone!

Oh, geez!  I am so sorry that I bailed!  I had that dye day down in Grandview, Texas.  I left at 1 p.m. from that (since I had planned on following Chel and was waiting for her yarn to finish 'cooking'.)  Anyway...she decided to go look at house they might buy instead, so I was just going to go myself. 

I started out (1:15 by this time) and I realize that my sugar was getting low and I was feeling quakey...so I stopped to get some bar-b-que to go at the roadside bbq place (and a quick trip to the ladie's room).  I did that and then it was 1:40 and I wasn't even to Alvarado yet!  I really needed to eat quickly so I just turned back around and went back to where they were dying the yarn.  I ate half of that huge-ginormous chopped bbq sandwich in about 5 minutes!  I started feeling better, of course, but felt horrible about missing the Craftster meeting!!!  I didn't have anyone's phone numbers on me at the time, so I couldn't get a hold of Sara.  If I had thought about it, I would have used the ranch's internet to find the number to The Scrapbook Pad and let you all know that way.

Anyway...so sorry!!!  I have never missed a meeting like this before in my life!  And they are so few and far-between, too.  I had stuff to give y'all, WootWoot and OY...so maybe I'll just have to save it for the next meet-up.  Or...PM me...we can always just get together on the fly!

Later!

 Undecided I'm sorry you weren't able to make it, RM, but OriginalYouth and I did have a nice chat and some nice uninterrupted crafting time.  Hopefully I'll be able to come to the next one.

Thanks RM!

I'd really like to get together sometime and thanks for the etsy compliments.  We're kind of on a little bit of a hiatus, but I'm sure we'll be getting back to it soon.

Are you ever doing this again?  Or does anyone have a time machine I could borrow?
