|Crosspatch Creations batt purchased at Hoosier Hills Fiber Festival. Started before the Tour started, but one of my goals was to finish it during.|
|One of my favorite fiber blends from Vintage Fibers that was traded for during Midwest Fiber & Folk last month. Love this stuff!!|

The reason it just is not as simple as that is because I made a promise to Mr. Bill that after the Midwest Fiber Festival was over, I would not be bringing the fiber back into the house. I would instead be unloading it to the new shop. And that would have already happened if I were not waiting on the electrician to finish putting in the wall outlets (picture coming later).
In the meantime, I tried out the Brookstone 'iconverter' this week end. If you are just trying to make quick copies of your photo negatives and do not care about having top notch quality then this little machine will work OK for you. If you are wanting top quality scans of your photo negatives do not buy this machine. It works OK for slides, but not for print worthy quality. Here are a few of the slides I scanned in over the week end. Note, some of these have been heavily photoshopped. None of my negatives turned out. After the slides starts some old digital from the time before digital cameras were such a big hit.

Started the Tour de Fleece this year with a bang literally! Bill frowns on bringing a spinning wheel to the lake when we go so this year, I opted for a couple of spindles.
|Our boat. Click to 'biggify'. The arrow points straight at us.|
|Spindling before the big show.|
|The big show about to start.|
|After the show, get out of the way or prepared to be run over. This is a wall of boats heading our way to go back down the lake to their perspective docks.|
|Dropped the fiber into the lake. No way am I going in after it.|
|You too can be protected from the big storm...lol Amazing what you see on the way to the lake!|
