I love the garden this time of year, everything is so green and lush…

Our roses are all blooming beautifully, yay!

Today Erin asked if she could learn to spin! She took to it quite well, Jen was guiding her along the way… She asked for her own wheel…. and I said, I think we will all just share for now 🙂 I am so happy, 3 of us spinning in the family now, such a wonderful art to share with our children…

Jenna’s new handspun, this is Camel Silk plyed back on itself…

My new handspun, called Conch Shell, it is a Blue Faced Leicester roving with Silk plyed back on itself…
Have a lovely weekend everyone…

    That’s wonderful that both of your daughers spin, Linda. It is a wonderful gift you have shared with them. I’ve blogged about this before, but I wish I would have learned to knit from my grandmother but didn’t have any interest until after she passed away. Your roses are gorgeous and I love that Conch Shell yarn! Hope you have a great weekend.

    Lovely post Linda. Wow, 3 of you spinning off one wheel. Lots of time management coming up I am sure! Hope you have a lovely weekend. The wool you have spun is beautiful. How is your room coming on??

    My gosh, Linda, your garden is so lovely! It’s lovely to see the greenness of early summer when our landscape is turning orange and wintery. Thanks for sharing it with us on Friday’s Nature Table.
    Blessings and magic.

    It’s so lovely, isn’t it, when a child loves something you love, and wants to be part of it? What I loved about schooling my own was that they had the time and scope to learn real things, to more than try them out – to try them on. The yarn is bee-u=tiful. If I were better at this knitting biz, I’d be buying it on a regular basis. Color is delicious.

    Dear Linda, Your gardens are so very beautiful! So lovely to see and hear that you are spinning with your girls! What a beautiful, beautiful process to be sharing in together! This must truly warm your heart : )
    Your yarns are very rich and textured, I would love to sit at your house for some spinning and a cup of tea : )

    I love the colors of your handspun…It is beautiful…

    It is nice to know land is lush and growing somewhere…It is not lush and is “going back to the earth” here 🙂
