...and it's F.O. Friday, too!
First, a little eye candy. Our spider lilies are blooming like crazy:
Not much else to show you at this point as there is nothing new.
I forgot to show this ornament that I finished on 6/28:
This is my favorite of the 3 Southwestern angel ornaments, but I really dislike this fabric.
Last night, I finished stitching the Scaredy Sheep scissor fob:
Tour de Fleece, Day 5:
I continued spinning the turquoise Crazy Batt [Ravelry] from Faerie Mountain on the spindle.
Tour de Fleece, Day 6:
I checked out my wheel to see what's wobbling. It looks like it's the hinge. The bushing it still seated so it's not the problem now. I cut a piece of that spongy shelf lining and put it between the folding components, taking care not to catch it in the hinge. Once I tightened the knob, the wheel stopped wobbling. Hooray!
I put the fast flyer on the wheel, transferred the spindle-spun singles to a bobbin, and spun the remaining fiber on the wheel.
Tour de Fleece, Day 7 (7/10):
I put the jumbo flyer on the wheel...still no wobble. Yay! I plied the singles from yesterday and finally finished another Tour de Fleece yarn. This is Crazy Turquoise [Ravelry]:
and the close up:
Crazy batt (2.0 oz) from Faerie Mountain

It feels good to be back on track!
