Nice buys for an old barn filled with so much in the way of tools, plumbing supplies, etc., and having to find our way around in the dark. There were some very nice sewing machines for sale on the back porch of the house but none of us is in the market for one. Whoever bought them got a good deal, though.
Linda and I met for coffee afterwards. Duane couldn't join us for that part but was glad she made it to the sale. All three of us hit a couple of smaller sales this morning and we came across skeins of yarn that we'll be sending to The Humble Stitch to be made into hats, scarves and gloves for the homeless. Linda kept one purple skein to knit some items herself. Duane and I both have so much yarn in our stashes that we didn't see a color that we wanted/needed to keep. Right now I'm working on two different projects. One is a hat for The Humble Stitch and the other is a 'scarf-lace' out of trellis yarn for myself. That's going a bit slow since I find that trellis yarn tends to be a little slippery.
It was back to recording both yesterday and today when I got home. I'm currently working on a book called Kudzu by Kathleen Walls. Then I have three more lined up after it. I had a setback when I developed an 'echo' in my recordings. I went nuts trying to figure out the cause and it turned out to be my mic placement. Somehow, despite the fact that it's housed in a padded box and has a metal pop filter attached, I managed to lower the mic forward on it's stand. Instead of speaking into the part of it I normally do, I was actually speaking almost down into the top of it. Bad idea. Easily fixed once I found it had been moved but what a waste of precious time! Good to go now, though, so it's back to work for me.
