Up this weekend: Nothing special planned. We arre both still recovering from colds, so we need to catch up on some sleep and try to recharge.
I need to start looking for fabric for the next sewing project. There are two quilt stores close to home and I plan on checking them both for what I need. I'm not holding my breath since the fabric I'm trying to match, at least in color range, is over 5 years old. I'm just hoping for something close!
I also want to see whether I can do the repair to my spinning wheel. I'd love to finish the two items I have in process, but I'm scared that my wheel will fall apart in the middle of them. The repair involves epoxy and I'd like to have fully-functioning brain cells before I attempt the repair.
