Next year meetings IMPORTANT

Our next meeting is next week!  I can't believe it is almost 2013! 
I have decided that my life is like a roll of toilet paper.  The closer I get to the end, the faster it goes.  I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone (who reads this blog) a happy new year!  I hope everyone got lots of fiber, needles, yarn and chocolate for Christmas.  Oh... oops.... maybe that was my wish list!  LOL

I decided to add a couple of pictures to this post to give your eyes a place to rest between words. Tomorrow I should take the Christmas decorations down, but perhaps I will procrastinate till next year!  Eyes tired yet?  Look at that cute quilted Santa Clause card! 

I hope you were determined to stay with this message because this is the important part of the post.  With the weather being all cold and snowy, I will not be driving to South Side Electric next week.  If someone would like to open, you can call and make arrangements to pick up a key from the office.  I probably will not be at the February and March meetings, so perhaps someone would like to open their home to the group for those meetings or someone could open at South Side.  Please share this information so that those who don't use the computer or check our blog will be aware of the info!

Spinning Wheels

Mr. Owen printed out the instructions for the Dodec Spinning Wheel and spent the week putting one together. It needs to be sanded and a clear coat of stain put on it. He used Tennessee Red Cedar to make the wheel. Along the way he made a couple of changes and has plans to make a couple more and then he may just be ready to sell a couple. Not bad for a first try. Okay Carol June he says he's ready to learn to spin are you ready to learn to play the banjo?
One of the changes he made was to use a couple of the old wheels off my quilting machine when I replaced all my wheels with new ones. He also used longer bolts than were called for in the plans.
