Wisconsin Sheep and Wool is history for another year. We saw old friends. Made new ones.
We were lucky enough to meet Mike of Mad City Mike's Blog. Mike is a weaver and a craker of antique circular sock machines. At first, I thought he was a member of the RV family, but after talking, I realized that we met through a cranking blog.
I did not see one sock machine this week end. It was at Wisconsin that I found mine last year. And what a year of learning it has been! I am now comfortable with my ole machine. I wanted to bring it this trip, but decided we had enough planned to fill all our free time.
I had a great group of students for the felting class. They all listened to the instructions and made some lovely felted slippers.
I had a mishap right before the class started. I was burned by boiling water. Luckily, the burn was only on my index finger and a small place on my thumb. The index finger burn is a third degree burn and hurts a tad...just a tad.
I was wearing a brace on my hand and I am sure that the brace saved me from much more injury.
I have photos from the class and hope to learn to post them for all to see. I love techy things, but often don't know how to operate the little buzzards completely.
We are now on our way to Elkart, Indiana. We have a cross wind that is really rough. We are passing a construction site and the dust is blowing from the site enough to look like smoke from a wildfire.
In Elkart, we will be visiting Duncan RV to have the windshield replaced. Last winter, we were attacked by a huge sheet of ice that sent me ducking for cover. The ice blew from the top of an eighteen wheeler. What a shock.
While at Duncan, we will be doing some looking at neew motor homes. We hope to move to a newer rig and we need to see what we like and don't like in order to make a wise decision. We went into the purchase of this one with no education at all.....not a wise idea.
'Nuf said for now. be careful out there! And God bless your day!
