Favorite treat to eat while spinning:  Eat?  Who has time to eat during Spinzilla?

Project you’ll be spinning for: WAIT!  Project?  I’m supposed to have a project in mind when spinning?!

Personal Spinzilla goal: To spin AT LEAST 7,000 yards and hopefully much more!

I confess. I am a serial crafter/hobbyist.  I become obsessed with a particular craft/hobby, quilting for instance. Buy everything I need for it, well, maybe some things that I don’t need too, and obsessively work on it for several years, then I move onto the next craft or hobby.  So far:  quilting, spinning, weaving, natural dyeing, rug hooking, embroidery, cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, tatting, dulcimer playing, gardening, herbs, sewing, 19th century Reenacting . . . And the list goes on!  This may explain why my office/craft room and my basement look like a huge yard sale in progress. I do cycle through my various hobbies/crafts, so I don’t just do them one time!

      Maybe we are sisters from another mother?! LOL!

      Hmmm . . . .well. I have to admit that I tried pretty hard to learn tatting, but I never did produce anything that looked worth a darn! I still have my tatting needles, but I don’t think this will be a craft that I will revisit! 🙂
