My New Toy

I have a new toy.  It is called a   kick spindle.  I purchased  mine from Heavenly Handspinning and is called the Calypso.   I just could not figure out how to use a drop spindle but this is easy and fun.

Zappos, The Woolery, and the Pie Kitchen

I  woke up trying to think of what to do yesterday.  I wondered if The Woolery in Frankfort, KY, was the real spinning/weaving superstore .   I had to check this out since Frankfort is only about 45 minutes from me.

As soon as I walked in the door, I had no doubt that this was the REAL Woolery.  The fiber and spinning wheels are just amazing.  Nancy took me into the shipping area so that I could see the new space, and yes this is an a nice size operation.   It seems that the company has just moved to a larger space.

 As I walked in, I saw a spinning class going on but I did not stick my head in.  

My head would not stop spinning because of all the color and fiber goodness.  I did purchase some fiber and two dvd's.    

Nancy and Nancy R. told me that since I was in Louisville, I had to go to Zappos outlet store.  Nancy got on the internet and got me the address so off I went.    It turned out that Zappos was not far from the hotel I am staying at so this maybe a problem.

The parking lot was full and everyone seemed to have a bag full of shoes.  I found my size, and then I saw why everyone was buying like crazy.  The price is half off the lowest price on the box, however if there is a red sticker it is 60% off and a brown sticker is 70% off.   Yes, I found a pair of shoes I liked for 60% off.  May have to make another trip before I go home.

This morning, I went to My Favorite Muffin and Bagel Cafe  for breakfast and decided to keep driving down the street to see what else could be in the area.  I had no idea that the Homemade Ice Cream Pie Kitchen was not far from the hotel. It was 11am and the sign said they were open so I had to check it out.  

If you see a whole pie and want a slice, they will slice it.  I was good....almost.  I got a slice of no sugar added apple pie, no sugar added cheese cake.....then I had to add a slice of butterscotch meringue pie to the order.   I will try to just eat a little of the butterscotch meringue.
