I have shark teeth I collected myself many years back, most are wrapped into charms and ready to work into hemp jewelry or put on waxed cording. 

2 days until our road trip!!  I'm so excited Cheesy  Just a couple things left to prep and we'll be ready for Thursday night to shove off.  Need to consolidate my supplies, heat transfer a couple designs to fabric for embroidery, and pull out my hoops.  I don't have the time to find and put together stuff for button art on the road right now, unless it's worked into some embroidery pieces, like a mixed media kind of thing.  I have TONS of patterns that I can transfer, so I'll pick a few nice ones to work on.

My new drum carder arrived yesterday! If any one wants to claim some custom batts or rollags, I will be putting a listing up in my shop Grin

I'm waffling on 'buying' more fiber - I still haven't spun the stuff I got the last few rounds, all I have is a drop spindle.  I am thinking of signing up for a spinning class on May 13th, to decide if a spinning wheel is for me.  I really don't need another hobby, especially one quite that expensive, but... but... spinning wheels are so cool!

Add to that drooling over the drum carder...  argh!

I'm waffling on 'buying' more fiber - I still haven't spun the stuff I got the last few rounds, all I have is a drop spindle.  I am thinking of signing up for a spinning class on May 13th, to decide if a spinning wheel is for me.  I really don't need another hobby, especially one quite that expensive, but... but... spinning wheels are so cool!

Add to that drooling over the drum carder...  argh!

I considered a spinning wheel too, but concluded a) it wasn't portable enough for my purposes, and b) they make spinning so much quicker that I would burn through my fiber all the faster, meaning I would spend even more money, after spending all the money on the wheel itself.  Smiley

Regardless of my experience, take the class! The spinning wheel bug might bite you or not, but until you give it a whirl (teehee), that bug will just keep buzzing around in your face!

Speaking of handspinning, I'm in the market for a new drop spindle, if anyone's looking to get rid of one. underthemountain made me one several years ago and I've finally worn it out.  Smiley I'd kind of like to try a lightweight ones, but I'm flexible.

I could spend all day using a drum carder; I've only handled one once and it was a delightful experience!

Does anyone have an assortment of foreign coins they might be looking to destash? Or cool looking old keys? I'm looking for a bunch - I think I may have finally had a flash of inspiration for my next mosaic piece but I've been slowly going through my own stash so it's not what it once was lol.
