Why I’m Not Spinning for Tour de Fleece or Spinzilla This Year
I love both the Tour de Fleece and Spinzilla! I get as excited about getting ready for them as I do for buying school supplies in the fall. You know I love making plans. Even though I’ve never hit my lofty spinning goals, I love the process of dreaming big and tossing my stash for the right fiber.
But I decided not to spin for either big event this year. Why? I want to spin how I want and I want a break from deadlines. The past 18 months have been really busy for me spinning-wise. I loved every second of it, but now I want to just float. I’m still spinning every day, but I want to follow all the spinning things that interest me right now, waiting for my next spinning obsession to carry me away. I wonder what it will be?
I am excited to see what everyone else is spinning and how much they are spinning! Sometimes it’s even better to spin vicariously, all the beauty and inspiration, none of the deadlines.
Tell me what you are spinning for the Tour de Fleece!

She likes her mysteries British, her walks woodsy, and to spend as much time as she can laughing.
