Yesterday was a good day for spinning. It was cool and I had the whole day at home. I got three samples done--bulky worsted spinning and medium woollen. Both techniques that predictably were quicker than the fine worsted spinning which I'd attempted earlier in the week. Even so, it felt good to tick off three items on my list. I got as far as skeining up and washing the samples and left them to dry overnight.

That's all very well, but this morning I had the task of labelling and presenting the work I'd done yesterday:
Would you believe it's taken me the whole morning? I did have a couple of other samples to paste up and just finding all the stuff I need and a bit of space on the table was quite a task in itself, but still, I'd hoped to be further along by now. On the other hand I've learned my lesson and don't want to be repeating work because I failed to get it organised properly. OK, the clock's just about to tick over to midday, I have a fair bit of the afternoon set aside for spinning. I think I can manage to stay organised and keep making progress . . . I think I can . . . I think I can . . .

yeah you can do it. :)
I know the deadline is fast approaching for this mammoth task, but how long do you have to go?

I've got until the end of the month and that should be ok, it's just days like today I get a bit lost along the way.
