No One Puts Baby in the Corner
Wednesday I just could not stand it - my Patrick Green Carder was still sitting in the truck from the fire evacuation and I realized it just was not going to walk itself back into the Fiber Prep Room. Also there was that small voice in the back of my head saying we are not out of the woods with fire dangers and maybe I should just keep the sweet heavier then a baby elephant in the truck so I wont have to go through that again. I admit it there are many things I have not unpacked just in case.
It amazes me how Fear, Panic or whatever you wish to call it can give me the strength of Super Women. This machine normally takes two of us to move it but since it was just myself in that frantic day I had no choice put to gather up all I had in strength and move the damn thing out of the fiber room, through the shop and out to the truck. Oh My GOD I did it. I must say when I look back at that time I can not even remember half of what I had to do but I surprised myself how quickly I moved that baby elephant.
Now with no PANIC running through the veins of this gal but rather just a need to save my shoulder from hand cranking my fiber batts this task was going to be interesting. OH MY GOD I think I hurt a few things - I admit I am still feeling the pain but I am so HAPPY to have my friend back into the work routine. I have been sitting in front of it creating many wonderful batts that would not be possible without my Baby back....
Here are just a few of the many Lush Fiber Batts I made over the last two days - What you Think?
