My New Spinning Wheels

They finally came my 30" cherry Schacht Reeves spinning wheel. Isn't she the most beautiful thing you have ever seen. And she spins like a dream!
And yes I got two, the sidekick is my traveling spinning wheel and she also spins like a dream and folds up to take along to spinning guild.

Its been raining here for days! I can't wait for it to warm up again but the rain is nice for the lawn.

Have a wonderful day!

Spinning Guild

This Wednesday is our dye exchange at spinning guild, the color is orange. I had never dyed before so this was a first. I couldn't do just orange so I added yellow and brown. It was one of the funnest things I have ever done. And now I think I just can't stop! I order more fiber and dye and can't wait to dye more!
I had to divide them into 1oz pieces and tag with my name the fiber and how I dyed it.
So I'm ready and can't wait tell Wednesday night!

Sold My Spinning Wheels!

I can't believe its been so long since my last post but time has gone by so fast. We spent all of October and November and most of December finishing our basement. We got it done just in time for Christmas. But after Christmas I got this idea that I should now sell my two spinning wheels and move up to a Schacht 30" cherry SR. I wasn't sure that they would sell but my Ashford Travellar sold in one day. It took a little longer for the Joy to sell but two weeks ago she went to a new home.

It was hard to see them go they were my first but I'm so excited for my new ones to ship. And yes I did said new ones. I also ordered the Schacht sidekick! It will ship on April 2nd along with the SR.

Have a nice day and I'm glad to be back!
