Sweitzer`s Countryside Fiber Mill

The dh & I took all of the fiber I had washed & picked & some I dyed to Sweitzer`s last week to be made into roving.The whole van was jam packed full.I feel I saved alot of money washing it all by hand myself.Heather,I THINK her name is,said it won`t take as long ,that step probably being done good enough to suit them.She buried her face in it & I smiled because I do the same thing with the fiber to make sure it feels & smells nice.
This chairs were so cute.The shop was so comfy & cozy & if I lived closer I believe I`d meet with their group to spin on Sun.afternoons.It is an hour away from where I live.
I thought alot about my mom going to & from there,as usually these trips I would have to make on my own & mom would always come along as I`m terrified of getting lost if I`m alone going to a strange place.On the way home a Van Morrison song came on.My mom loved him & wore out the tapes I made of him for her.I felt it was her way of showing me that she was still along for the ride.

Soon you'll have fresh processed fiber to work/play with. It sounds like you have great memories of time spent with your Mom.

At first glance I fell in love.The strappy design and minimal appearance of Abercrombie Fitch are classy.Franklin and Marshall T-shirtsBut that sculptured heel, with its understated approachVibram Five Fingers Shoesand what looks like a little animal paw, I was unsure how I felt.Louis Vuitton HandbagsThen I discovered there are similar versions with other types of Dolce & Gabbana, possibly a zoo of choices
