Resolution #2

Here we are, a little more than two weeks into the new year and I feel surprisingly good! For one thing, I have actually started to tackle the second item on my "great list": organization.

Here are two pictures of my "loft" in the barn, shortly after it was built:
Look how neat, how organized, how peaceful!!!!

That was some years ago, years with lots of activity, with wool coming and going and being processed, but totally devoid of any attempt at organization. You know how it is when you are in the middle of a project, and you just KNOW there is more black llama here someplace --

Here is what 5 years of neglect looks like:

It isn't finished yet, but in one day I did manage to clean and sort a good bit of the mess:

I decided to sort primarily by color, from white (left) to gray, black and red (right). I think it is looking up, don't you? Just don't turn around, or you will see the boxes and boxes of roving from MFW (below) that simply won't fit anywhere.

Next step is to take inventory and start listing fiber for sale... quick ... before the next boxes arrive!

I decided to start at the top: beautiful dehaired cashmere cloud is listed for sale at:
It comes in 5 natural shades, and I am selling it for $20/ounce, including postage. You will need to click on the big picture for more info, and will need to let me know which color you want.

Thanks for reading!

We have a guest house (GGG). Your handspun is LOVELY -- maybe we could trade stashes?

Hi Kathy, About 3 or 4 years ago my husband and I drove up from San Diego to buy a merino fleece from you. I remember being amazed at the quantity in the trailer and THEN to see all that fiber up in your barn loft! I was envious of all the space you have in your loft studio. It looks like a wonderful job of organizing !
