The Fiber Artist

Wow, that sounds pretentious doesn't it. But it is the name of my company, so I decided to use it. This is where I will keep a record of works in progress in the hope that it will result in more productivity. It will also give me a place to ramble on about my life, so that maybe later I will remember what happened in ___ (fill in day, month, year of your choice).

 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  There is a tree.

Wrapped package
There is this (as my husband calls it) wrapped package in the other room.  He in says that I can't tell what it is because it is wrapped.
Big Box
I felt sure that this just had a note saying the spinning wheel was in the other room but instead there was:
He made it

This!  He made it why does he look so confused?
Tension box from top
 A tensioning box  used for weaving and plying multiple singles.

And I have some Rambouillet that I want to 3-ply so I will try it out.

I really appreciated his taking up woodworking.
