Not being able to find a job really gets to you...I finished university and could not find a job, but was also too burned out to add a masters degree, so I've been loving with my parents and doing, well, nothing for over a year now. Through lots of luck I got a training-on-job totaly unrelated to my university degree. I should be so happy about it, but at the same time I worry so much because of my health issues and stuff :/

Really, if it hadn't been for crafting (even though I'm very slow) I would have gone insane!
Yesterday I finally started a new little project. Sometimes it's better not to think and just get some paper and glue  Grin

Is anyone here a spinner who could give me some advice please?

Where I live used to have a thriving textiles industry but over the years our factories have close and our charity shops often turn up huge cones of single ply "industrial" yarn. In the past I've wound a ton of strands together to mix different colours and textures but its obvious that they're multiple strands. Is it possible to use my drop spindle to spin them into new yarn? I know next to nothing about spinning and only have the spindle because it was something hubby could make for me that was yarn related  Grin I did manage to spin some roving into a lumpy bundle of yarn but that's about it as far as my experience goes.

so, am I a total idiot or is this a do-able thang?  Roll Eyes

Oh skittlebug, I adore the little owl! He looks so beautiful.  Cheesy

To all others. This economy stinks so very much and you are not to blame. I am very glad you have crafting to turn to and us to talk with. Because frankly, I've been there.

Crafting certainly has played a part in a lot of people's lives...it sure beats doing destructive things...it is no one's fault...it is our entire world's fault and it is catching up with us now...hang in there all!  My sister just got a job after two years!  She is 57 years old, underpaid, overeducated, but at least she is working!  It was hard to keep her spirits up but she did it by volunteering and then got a job through all her connections!

skittlebub--wowie!  I love the super hero "cape/bib"!  Cheesy

and that is the tiniest little crochet dog ever...the hook size must be a 12 or something...I would never be able to see what I was doing! Cheesy

You have made so many cute things there...so many...

redstar--I loved the peacock earrings...jillybeans is such a gracious swapper...we have all made oopsies so no worries! Cheesy

Wow, skittlebub, awesome embroidery!!  Love the personalized robes the best I think!

I had another craft day with friends and made a t-shirt necklace:

It was super easy and fun!  I love crafty get togethers!

AND -- I received the most excellent prize from alwaysinmyroom today!!!

A wonderful note, some embroidery floss (can never have enough!), one of those awesome pin cushions she posted (I own zero pin cushions - this is MUCH needed!!), and four amazingly perfect fabrics!!!

Close up of fabrics, because they are just too cool:

These are screaming quilt for my son!  jennieingram sent me some excellent quilting instructions a while ago...now I have the perfect fabrics to use!

This was such a wonderfully personal prize, I could not have chosen better myself!  Thanks AIMR for being such a thoughtful prize giver!  You rock!  Grin Grin

Yay!  You received already!

Your little guy is just so lucky to have such a crafty mom!

Glad you like the fabrics...they are fun and a quilt would be perfect!

Eeee! I LOVE that fabric! Robots and circuit board and gears? That will make an awesome quilt! Even the scraps left from using that would be cool for covering buttons or making bookmarks. What a neat prize package! And the pincushion is so pretty. Alwaysinmyroom rocks!

I love that t-shirt necklace, and that fabric is awesome!

I made a tutu for my Lola!

She really didn't appreciate it.  Roll Eyes

Then I had to share the torture fun with Crystal, our new kitty. Who also was unimpressed
