Spilled Beverages
Re-organizing the stash!  Reclaiming the "crap room" and turning it back into the Craft Room.  Slowly but surely.  If I'm brave enough I'll show you the before pictures.  (Beware, it's frightening.)

Serenity, my Kromski mintrel spinning wheel and I are taking a little break from each other.  I'm having difficulty spinning because my ply keeps breaking and I'm getting frustrated.  So we are having some time apart and when I find more patience I will come back to spinning on her.
