This is Miss Jasmine's new napping spot. I have one of these rugs at the front door & one at the back door, she doesn't seem to prefer one over the other as long as one of them is free for a nap during the day. And another evening nap before bedtime/playtime. LOL
And here is a photo of my finished Mermaid yarn! My first Navajo plied yarn. Thanks to Robin & her excellent demonstration last fall. Can you believe that I remembered it that long without doing it? ha ha
I ended up with 280 yards of approximately sport weight yarn. Woohoo! Now, what to do with all this 100% wool yarn that I'm creating.... I mean, I do live in the land of HOT down here. I guess there will be some cooler climate friends getting some gifts. :)It started as this....Hope everyone is having a good week!

And I finished spinning my Mermaid BFL roving that I got from Kathy's etsy shop a while ago. This was my first attempt at Navajo plying. It came out really pretty if I do say so myself! LOL You'll have to wait on a photo of the finished yarn, it's had a bath & is hanging to dry at the moment. Here is a photo of the single still on the bobbin before plying.After finishing up my Mermaid BFL, I was digging through my fiber stash for what I was gonna spin next & discovered quite a few goodies that I've never shared with you. So out I went with the fiber & camera....
More lovely BFL roving from Kathy's shop.Some superwash wool that I dyed up myself. :) Some gorgeous Bamboo fiber from Chimera.
And some lovely merino & correidale fibers from the Lakehouse Loft.
And so I leave you with a photo of my Pink Duster, of course I had to have one that was pretty. LOLHope everyone had a great weekend!

Would you just look at the beautiful lazy kate that my hubby made for me!! It will hold all of my bobbins, one is missing cause it's on my spinning wheel. The only thing I'm gonna add to this is a leather strap on top for carrying. He is working out the best way to add tension to my bobbins for plying. And maybe one day I'll get creative & put some kind of wood burning decoration on there. He is already making plans on a new & improved version, but I love this one & will be perfectly content with it.
Hope everyone is having a great week!

It's super fuzzy, I think I will try another one & not do so many fuzzy chains.
It was a fun & quick project. Too bad the actual dusting with it won't be as much fun. LOL
You need to use a machine washable novelty yarn so you can throw it in the wash when you're done dusting, or if it sits around long enough that it collects dust on it's own. ha ha
Hope everyone is having a good week!

She can watch him from the second window without being discovered & scaring him away. Although she does seem to enjoy pouncing in the window where he is at & making him run off from time to time. LOL
Don't forget to check out the other kittys over at Whiskers on Wednesday!

Hope everyone had a great July 4th weekend!
