First Prom!!!

Okay, I have kept telling her I will not let her grow up!  I miss my 5 year old that thought I was grand!  Now I have a teen that  most of the time does not want to talk to me! 
Last night was first prom - we ran all day.  Been preparing for months!!  The right dress, make up, and hair - had to be perfect and it was.

Went to my daughter's (Angie) house, and she fixed her hair & make up.  Perfect!  Got home she ate a snack with fresh, wet silver polised finger nails.  Got dress and looked Perfect!  Of course, Angie taught her the pose!  If you ever visit Angie's blog, you will see the pose perfected!

She went with some friends, Cory, Jonah & Becca.  Unfortunately Beccs was running late and they had to meet her and I did not get any pictures of her and Jonah.  Maybe I will have some pics later.

Cory & Britney looked good!  He came carrying her a rose - so sweet!  His mother brought him and we took lots of pictures!!

Notice - they are into the pose!!!

Wind was blowing! But a beautful day.
Discussing the wonders of the trees!

Yes, Jonah, you have to wear a tie -took Cory  and his mom to  help get Jonah's tie fixed!

Off to the first Prom!! A night they will remember!!  They finally got home safe and sound.  Cory's mom came to pick him up.  She & I stood outside and listen to all the fun that Jonah, Cory & Brit could remember until almost 1 a.m.  Jonah & Corry headed home - we headed in the house.  Britney gave me a few more highlights that will be memories for her.   Then off to bed - I am dragging today and letting her sleep!

New Friend Joined the Ashford!

Okay, everyone tells me this is as addictive as quilting - it really is!!!!  I love my Ashford wheel (Ashley) but a guild member was selling a Louet and I had to check it out.   Ashley meet Louie!!  They have bonded!

It has super hugh bobbins which will be extra nice when I ply even from Ashley.  It is a comtemporay wheel but it really grew on me.  We had to balance the wheel when we got it.  Could not even tell it was out of balance until I put the bobbins on the lazy kate and then the wheel rubbed one of the bobbins.  With the help of fellow Ravelry member, especially knitspin, and the help from the Louet company.  We got it balanced and now I can ply from the kate.

It also has a skein winder that attaches which I am going to love.  The swift and I sometimes had words spoken during use.  We also have to fix a dowel on it but it works even the way it is. 

It fits right in my back seat so I can take it with me if I want to go to a friend to spin or to guild with it.  Also I can lay it down in the hatchback.  I battled Ashley in my little compact car.

I asked a couple friends if I was crazy to buy another one so soon - and they assured me I was not!!!  One has 4 wheels, the other has two, and one friend has just recently been bitten by the buy and bought a wheel last month at the Townsend Fiber Festival!

It, too - like Ashley, is an older wheel.  But with tender loving care it is up and going great.  Now if someone could repair my older body and get it up and going - life would be grand!!!!
