Catch up, heartbreak and triumph

It’s been a long time, it feels since I’ve looked up from my current crochet project.  I’m deep concentration on another Mandala Madness project.  This particular one is an entry into our local county fair.

While I have been working on this, our family suffered the loss of our 20-year-old kitten Crya.  She had been with us through so very much.  Today is a week since her passing, and it feels like it happened today.  Our home and hearts are emptier than normal, and we are helping our other cat – Chewie – through this transition as for the first time in his life, he’s the only animal.

That being said, I’ve taken the first few steps in my project for 2017 … I am teaching myself how to spin, and dye my own yarn to use on my crochet and knit products.  Right now, I have a couple of drop spindles and some basic wool to learn the portable spinning.  I love the fact that I am in a couple of communities that can help.  I know I will have a LOT of questions.

So, let’s get this party started!
