    The community watch group I serve as secretary in is working at a community Independence Day Breakfast on Saturday morning (yep, small-town Utah, we tend to move things off of Sundays!) and I get to be there from 6-11 AM! Not really looking forward to getting you at 5AM to be there on time (the town it's in is about a 30 minute drive from where I live) but we get to put up a table with info about our group, so hopefully it will give us some traffic and interest as were always looking for more members! Then on Sunday my family is getting together to have a BBQ and just celebrate together.

      Our forecast is rain, rain, and more rain, so I am thankful I had a good birthday week up until now. I will be heading back home to Boston Saturday and will be watching the Boston Pops and fireworks on tv Monday night. I'm sure I will get some knitting and spinning done this weekend!!!

        We're putting up hay. It's late this year. We usually have it in the barn the 3rd week of June. It's been a weird weather spring/summer so far. If all goes well ... we may get out fishing one evening.

          We plan on taking some time to celebrate on Sunday with extended family.
          Fun, Food and Fireworks.
          woo hoo!

          We will be viewing what California calls 'safe and sane' fireworks. Unless a neighbor brings some over from another state. Those actually go into the air and burst.
          Fire danger is huge out here, as it is in other western states. The authorities have really increased the fines and penalties for having the 'illegal' ones.

            Hello everyone! I'm hoping to be a regular poster again, as things are getting back into something resembling a routine. I suddenly became a caregiver, had to move and combine two households, and have sorted more stuff than I can describe. I fear the local charity shop will fear seeing me at their donations bin at some point. I'm not done but I'm at a place where things are beginning to look possible. I haven't crafted at all, and probably won't for a while, but someday I look forward to playing with yarn and fabric again. Another family member will be stepping in toward the end of July so once I've got all the stuff dealt with I'll actually have "me" time again. I'm trying to catch up and love reading all the posts I've missed, you've all been in my thoughts.

              That is a lot of stress to deal with. Hope you are able to take time for yourself once in a while. I haven't been on much lately either but maybe we'll both get to be on here more and possible get some fiber crafting time again soon. ๐Ÿ’—

              Wow. Yes, I know about being a caregiver, although no one has moved in with us at this point and I have siblings and so does my husband which reduces the work load. Hang in there!

            I finished the socks I made for my sister-in-law this week. Since her feet are so small, I have enough of this yarn left to make some for myself too. I am having to augment it with a complementary color, but there is still plenty to show off the cute yarn!

              I was absolutely shocked at how identical these came out! Usually, self-striping yarn doesn't come out so much alike. I wish I knew what kind of yarn it was so I could recommend it, but it's been in my stash since before 2010 and lost its band at some point!

            Photos from the farm today. Got the 1st cutting hay in the barn. Took a few sheep photos, and the laying hens wanted equal time.

            Yes, HAPPY Independence Day to all! I wish it felt like July in Massachusetts. Itโ€™s cloudy and the same temp it was on Christmas last Dec, 60 deg. F. I guess it is good knitting/ spinning weather. (Pic from a few days ago.)

              Char, yes. A great (x 3 or 4) uncle on my Dadโ€™s side was family of the Middletonโ€™s. He also signed our Declaration of Independence.

              This made me chuckle. โ˜บ Actually, my ancestors are a combo of those already here before the white guys were duking it out (Creek and Cherokee) and immigrants that came over in the 19th and early 20th centuries. German mostly. Although there is one line that goes back to pre Revolution. My Aunt was a geneology buff. ๐Ÿ˜

              I'm a relative newbie! First Generation American here. My Dad was born in Hungary in 1920 and came over in 1923. Even into his 90's he could remember the boat trip over tho' he was only 3 years old. My mother's parents came from French Canada sometime before she and her siblings were born in the 20tees and 20's. French and Irish on that side.

            I finally finished something! This is my second pair of handspun socks. They are made from 80/20 Superwash BFL/nylon that I dyed last Fall. I like that they look scrappy, but with fewer ends to weave in!
